Welcome to the Tuscaloosa Ford Finance Center
You’ve reached this page because you are about to purchase a car, or you are thinking about buying a car and want more information on the financing process. Well, you’ve come to the right place. Here is some basic information to get you started. Every situation is completely different, and must be assessed on a case-by-case basis. We will address some frequently asked questions here in this finance guide.
What Do Banks Look For?
- Value of Car
- Employment Status
- Terms of Loan
- Credit Score
- Debt to Income Ratio
- Credit History
- Down Payment
One misconception is that all you need is a good credit score. Credit score is one ranking factor, but your credit history and collateral are also part of the application process.
