Should You Pay Cash Up Front or Finance Your Corolla?

If you’ve decided to purchase a Toyota Corolla, you obviously have good taste. And if you’re making that purchase from Warrenton Toyota, your source for all things Toyota in the Culpeper and Fairfax, VA, areas, you also have the financial smarts to know when you’re getting a fantastic deal.

Now that you’ve selected what we believe to be the king of compact cars, it’s time to think about the details that might not have occurred to you until it’s time to pay. Here’s one: Is it better to pay cash for your Corolla or finance it with an auto loan? Either way, you’re going to be getting an amazing vehicle packed with features and value for an incredibly low price. And like so many questions in life, there’s no one right answer.

Whether you choose to pay cash up front or finance the cost of your Corolla is almost exclusively dependent upon your preferences and your financial means.

Read on to see the advantages of each option.

Cash for Your Corolla: The Benefits

It’s kind of a no-brainer to point out that the most compelling benefit of paying cash for your new or used Corolla is that it will be all yours from day one. This simple transaction is just as straightforward as it gets: You hand over the cash, we hand over the keys. You’re free to drive off our lot behind the wheel of a car that belongs to you with no strings attached or arrangements to be made.

If you’ve recently sold a vehicle and are using those funds to pay for your Corolla, or if you’ve been saving up for a vehicle purchase, this is a great way to buy because it’s quick and easy and will save you money over the long haul.

If, however, you’d like to save some of your cash for a rainy day (or, who knows, a well-deserved vacation?) you might use some of your cash to pay down the cost of your Corolla and finance the remainder. In this scenario, your monthly payments will be as low as you want to make them depending on how much you put down, and you’ll achieve full ownership sooner than if you had financed the entire cost.

Financing Your Corolla: The Benefits

It’s not always feasible to shell out cash on the spot for a vehicle purchase, and that’s why auto financing is such a popular option. It allows you to spread out the cost of your car over a period of months or years so that your payments are more easily manageable.

And with help from our team of on-site financing experts, you can get approved for a low-interest loan from among our network of reputable lenders. It’s quick and easy – especially if you use our online tool to apply for credit before you get here.

One more thing to consider: Paying consistently on an auto loan is an effective way to improve less-than-stellar credit or build strong credit if you don’t yet have much to draw from.
