How refinancing works:

Refinancing essentially means replacing your old car loan with a new car loan, in order to revise your debt repayment schedule.

You should consider selling your car before you look at refinancing, unless the new loan is at a lower interest rate to save you money in the long run.

The common goal when one wants to refinance is to pay less interest over the life of the loan. Borrowers may also want to change the duration of the loan.

Typically, a refinanced loan will have a lower interest rate.

When you consider refinancing, you’ll want to shorten the term of your loan.

Your credit profile will be reviewed when you apply, as a way to determine whether you’ll be able to repay the loan or not as well as to determine your payment behaviour.
