APR: The annual percentage rate or finance rate is the interest rate on your car loan. The rate is a percentage of the amount you borrow that the lender charges annually for the use of its funds.
Lease: Agreement that is basically a long-term rental of a vehicle for a set period of time. For example, three, four, or five years. The dealer or a third-party buyer purchases the car and allows a lessee to use it for a monthly charge. The contract can include an option to buy once the lease is up.
Term: The length of your loan or lease. Common terms are 36, 48, and 60 months. Interest rates often go up in relation to the length of your term.
Dealer incentives: Money-saving offers from manufacturers that dealers often pass on to customers. Manufacturers use incentives to generate sales on specific models.
Trade-in value: The amount a dealer pays for your current car when selling you a new car. Having an idea of your vehicle’s trade-in value before going to the dealership is always a good idea.
The finance staff at our Hyundai dealership understands that you will have questions and we’re here to help any way we can. In fact, we’ll let you know of any money-saving incentives or Hyundai specials we have available.
