At Keyes Chevrolet, our number-one goal is to make the car-buying process as straightforward as possible. When it comes to financing a used or new Chevy Equinox, we’re here to guide you through each step. To help you prepare for your visit, here are a few financing basics to know before you sit down with your local Chevy dealer near Los Angeles, CA. 

Do Your Research

Before you start the car loan application process, the first important step is at-home research. That includes doing research about the models that best meets your budget and knowing exactly what your budget is. You can complete a fair amount of research right on our website. Use our helpful filters to narrow your search based on price. You can also look at current incentives and specials to help you secure the best value. 

Another helpful piece of information to prepare before you begin the car-buying process is knowing your credit score. Knowing your credit-worthiness will help put you in a good position during the financing process.

And if you think you’ll be trading in your current car to help offset the cost of your purchase, it will be beneficial to appraise the value of your Chevy pick-up. Use our online value-your-trade tool and bring that information with you. And if you feel ready, you can even get started with the finance application directly on our website.
