Pre-Qualify for a Car Loan Before Entering the Snakepit

The latest Capital One Auto Navigator survey reveals only 26 percent of respondents feel very confident when shopping for a car. While this is a six percent increase over 2018, respondents attribute low confidence to not having finances in order prior to visiting a dealership (27 percent)[1], not researching nor knowing what car they want (43 percent) and past experience (28 percent).  In addition, only 24 percent say they are “a boss” when it comes to negotiating during car buying, a number that also saw a slight increase (eight percent) over last year (sixteen percent).

“Car shopping should be enjoyable instead of stressful, and with a little pre-work, consumers can ensure their decision complements their lifestyle and budget,” said Jeffrey Rabinowitz, managing vice president, Capital One Auto Finance. “We found that 88 percent of consumers surveyed understand what it means to pre-qualify for financing, but only half are willing to try it. With Auto Navigator, consumers can pre-qualify for financing with no impact to their credit score, and with our Auto Learning Center, they can research all aspects of car shopping.  This transparency allows consumers to feel more confident in their car-buying experience.”

Additional findings from the survey include:

Based on survey responses, finance is not only the consumers’ biggest concern during the car-buying process, but also the most time consuming and stressful. 

  • 75 percent of respondents put budget in their top three elements to consider when buying a car.
  • There is a divide on the most important financial factors when purchasing a vehicle. 28 percent of respondents are looking for the lowest monthly payment, 27 percent are focused on final sale price of the vehicle and 20 percent are concerned with total cost of ownership.
  • The most time-consuming task at the dealership is working with and signing paperwork with the finance department, according to 52 percent of respondents.

Based on survey responses, shoppers crave improvements to the car-buying experience.

  •  57 percent of respondents are looking for improvements to the car buying process, particularly transparency in financing options, negotiations and more clarity on dealer incentives and promotions.

Auto Navigator by Capital One provides a digital inventory of nearly four million cars from almost 13,000 participating dealerships across the nation so consumers have all the information needed to confidently find and finance a car. Auto Navigator further supports consumers by allowing them to see if they pre-qualify for financing with no impact to their credit score, saving them time before heading to the dealership.
