Used Car Loans
Who wouldn’t want the power to shop like a cash buyer for a good used car?
Whether you’re planning to buy a used car at a dealership, online or from a private party, you can shop like a cash buyer with used car loans from Wells Fargo.
Alternatives to dealer auto loans
Even though a dealer can line up used car financing for you, it’s still a good idea to secure your own car finance option before you’re ready to buy a used car.
Online or private party purchases
Used car financing is a little different when you make the purchase from a neighbor, online or through the classifieds. Your car finance options are to pay cash or line up your own used car loan.
Before talking with the seller, visit your bank, credit union or apply online for a used car loan. That way you can secure the used car financing before committing to the seller.
Flexible opportunities for used auto loans
You may already know what vehicle to buy, or maybe you want to know what you can spend first.
Either way, our used car finance opportunities are flexible enough to give you a pre-qualified amount1 before you start looking. Or, Wells Fargo may be able to help you line up your used auto loan right away if you’re ready to buy a used car now.
Already know what car to buy?

It may be easier to avoid extras and hidden fees at the dealer when your used auto credit is in place ahead of time.
1 Certain restrictions (e.g. loan-to-value (LTV) ratio) will apply to the pre-qualified auto loan amount.
2 In some cases, you will receive a message that your used car loan application requires further analysis by our loan officers. In these cases, we will email you the results of your application.
3 You may be eligible for a discount for having a Wells Fargo relationship and deposit account from which your monthly loan payment is deducted. During the life of the loan, if the monthly ACH (automated clearing house) payment from your Wells Fargo deposit account is discontinued for any reason, or you no longer meet the relationship requirements, you will lose the selected discount.
