Difference between loans for new and old cars
Used Car Loans typically have lower loan-to-value (LTV) ratio and higher interest rates than loans for the purchase of new cars. The loan amount for Used Car Loans may be much less than the seller's asking price because it also depends on how much the lender values the used car.
