The term "car loan" refers to the amount of money borrowed by a consumer to purchase a vehicle. A personal loan is taken out to buy an automobile. All car loans are for a specific length of time between 24-60 months. This type of loan is also known as financing. Car loans generally include a variety of fees and taxes which are added to the total loan amount. If you default on your repayments, the lender can seize your car to try to recoup its losses. Car loans are paid off in fixed monthly instalments with varying terms and interest.
