- How fast can I be approved for an auto loan? Will funds be available same day?
If you meet our credit criteria, you could be approved instantly. If your application must be reviewed by an underwriter, you should receive a decision within the same day. If you have applied online and you do not meet our criteria, you will be notified of a decision on your application within two business days. As long as all stipulations to obtain the loan are satisfied, funds are available the same day.
- Can being pre-approved help me when I’m vehicle shopping?
It is beneficial to get pre-approved before you go shopping. If an application requires certain stipulations such as a limited loan-to-value or a maximum loan amount, it is better to know that information prior to shopping.
- Can I pay off my loan quicker than the payment schedule?
Yes. Ascend does not have an early repayment penalty for any loan we offer.
