Auto loans are usually granted through a bank lender or credit union. Buyers with the highest credit scores will secure the lowest auto loan rates.

Also, few people can buy a car outright without completely depleted their saving account. Although, some dealerships do offer their own financing that allows customers with poor credit an opportunity to get a car loan. Some people who have no other option.
