Your Best Bet!E-LOAN: Auto loans, Used Car Refinancing

A great site with secure collection of information, an easy quote request process and some good educational resources. You can get a loan for a new vehicle or refinance an existing loan and if you apply during business hours you may receive approval within half an hour.

All information is collected on secure pages and the process is quick and easy to understand. There are good resources available in the Tools and Resources section of the site. Where other sites have a lower limit of $7,500 for the minimum amount you can get as a loan, this site has a minimum of $5,000 (except for Arizona which is $10,000.01).

There aren't any negative sides to this site.

  • Get a loan quote
    Launch right in by answering the questions beneath the Get Started! Apply Now heading.

One of our Favorites!LendingTree - Mortgage Loans, Home Equity, Personal and Auto

A good site although its emphasis seems to have shifted away from auto loans. The quote request process is simple and quick and there is a small amount of good information in the Knowledge Center. You can refinance or get a loan for a private purchase through Lending Tree.

All information is collected on secure pages and the process is quick and easy to understand.

Smaller loans (below $7,500) are not available. The information on auto loans available in the "Knowledge Center" is not very extensive. There isn't a lot of information to help you figure out how the site works.

How to:

  • Get a loan quote
    On the main page click on the Auto Loan link in the left hand column and then fill out the subsequent forms.

One of our Favorites!Capital One Auto Finance

All information is collected on secure pages and the process is quick and easy to understand. There is good information about car buying and financing in the Help Center.

Smaller loans (below $7,500) are not available through Capital One.

Road Loans

A good site that unfortunately does not offer loans in all states (residents of Alaska, Alabama, Hawaii, Iowa, Louisiana, Tennessee and Wisconsin cannot obtain loans through Road Loans). Information is done on a secure page and is quick and easy. Road Loans bills itself as a site for those with less than perfect credit so this may be a place to look at if you fall in to that category. Road Loans offers refinancing and private purchase financing.

All information is collected on secure pages and the process is quick and easy to understand.

I kept getting Javascript errors on this site but I'm not sure if that was my computer/browser combination or a problem with their site. There isn't really any helpful information on the site for the new or used car buyer.

How to:

  • Get a loan quote
    Simply move through the 3-step process completing the forms as indicated.

Car Loans, Auto Loan. Online Car Financing. Auto Credit Express Car Buying Service

This is another site geared towards people with "special circumstances" - in other words folks with less than great credit ratings. Note that the site does NOT finance for private purchases or purchases from "non-network dealers". Nor do they refinance current loans. The application process is a little more extensive than other sites but is secure.

The secure and extensive application form is supposed to allow the site's "finance managers to evaluate your credit profile quickly and accurately" and thus provide you with a loan where other sites would not (based solely on your credit rating). The site is available in Spanish.

Loan offerings are limited - you can not refinance or finance a private purchase on this site. This site is "not a direct lender. [They] are a car buying service for people that are unable to qualify for direct loans."

How to:

  • Get a loan quote
    Go down to Step 4, enter your zip code and click on the Continue button. Complete the subsequent secure pages to apply for a loan.
