Refinance and Extend Your Auto Loan Term
Get added flexibility when you refinance your auto loan with RefiJet
When you refinance your auto loan with RefiJet’s help, our team can help you to find the right combination of loan parameters to create the scenario that fits your goals. For some of our clients, that is to extend your auto loan term. The term of your loan is the number of months until you pay it off. There are several benefits to changing the term of your loan.
With a new refinance loan, you may wish to choose a shorter-term loan, one that pays off the amount you owe in a shorter period of time. Or, you may wish to extend that term, which means it will take longer to pay it off. What’s the difference? It comes down to what it does to your monthly payment and how well it fits your objectives.
Do You Want a Lower Monthly Payment?
One of the best ways to lower your monthly payment on your auto loan is to refinance it into a longer-term loan. By extending the amount of time it takes for you to pay off what you owe, you may be able to drop the monthly payment amount considerably. This is one of the ways we help our clients who want a lower monthly payment, save an average of $150/month*.
If you want a lower payment, keep in mind that extended the loan may mean you pay more on the loan in the long term. That’s because there is more time for interest to accumulate on the loan. Still, for those who need a lower monthly payment to balance their budget, this may be a good option for you.
You Can Still Pay It Off Sooner if You Extend Your Auto Loan Term
When you get a simple interest loan with us, though, you may secure a lower monthly payment while having the ability to pay the loan off earlier than the final due date, if you choose to. You have the option – not a requirement – to pay off the principal on the loan faster. If you choose to pay off your loan early, you end up reducing the total amount of interest you pay over the life of the loan, versus what you would have paid if you paid the loan for the full Term.
This option allows you to have the flexibility to have a lower monthly payment requirement from your lender. You can either make the standard monthly payment or you can make a larger payment to help you pay off the loan earlier and pay less interest overall.
Auto refinance loans through RefiJet never have a pre-payment penalty. That means there is little risk to you in taking this option. It gives you far more flexibility in repaying the debt you owe.
Changing the Term to Pay Off Your Debt Faster
Some people want to pay off their loan faster. They do not want or need a lower monthly payment. They just want to get out from under their car loan sooner. That is an option and a reason to refinance your auto loan, as well. When you do this, you are able to refinance your loan for a shorter term. Some of our clients like to do this
If you want to reduce the length of time it takes you to pay off your debt, talk to our loan specialists about shortening your repayment period. However, remember the above example, too. You do not have to refinance into a shorter contract. You could refinance with us into a new loan with the same estimated pay off date. Then, you can pay off the debt faster by paying more than you owe. If your current loan limits your ability to pay off the principle like this, refinancing may make sense for you.
Consider the Advantages of a Lower Monthly Payment
You may benefit from a lower monthly payment for several reasons:
- Having more money each month to put towards other debts you have, such as high-interest rate credit cards.
- You may be able to improve your credit by making on-time payments with your new, lower monthly payments.
- You may be able to use those extra funds to add to your savings or invest. Use them in any way that works for your needs.
