Some of the questions many Draper drivers ask us when learning how to finance a used car are, “do you need full coverage on a used financed car?” or “how many years can you finance a used car?”. Luckily, we have the answers you need to shop like a pro.

We’ll also cover how many years you can finance a used car, among other issues that the prospect of used car financing can raise.

Financing a Used Car: The Facts

So, do you really need full coverage on a financed used car? Probably. The majority of states won’t require Murray drivers to purchase full coverage. That said, if you don’t get full coverage, most banks or lenders won’t give you a loan, regardless of whether your car is new or used. But are you required to maintain that full coverage?

When you finance a used car, you and your lender will work together to determine how many years you can finance a used car, and they’ll hold the title of your vehicle until you pay it off. To stay within the bounds of your contract, you’ll need to continue paying for full coverage. One last time: do you really need full coverage on a financed used car? Absolutely.

How Many Years Can You Finance a Used Car?

Honesty, the answer to “how many years can you finance a used car?” should be the same answer to “how many years can you finance a new car?”. It depends on the price of the vehicle, your credit, the amount you’re willing to put down, and what terms the lender is willing to offer.
