I Took the Pain Out of Buying a Car with the Capital One Auto Navigator Website

Recently, we have been looking into buying a new family car. We are considering a hybrid to save on fuel and to be more eco-friendly. We have even test driven a couple to jump start the process. Our plan is to have one picked out by the start of the summer. Summer is generally when those looking to buy a new car flock to car dealerships to check out any seasonal and holiday sales. With this in mind, we have been referring to the Capital One® Auto Navigator® to search for and finance a car ahead of time.

What is the Capital One Auto Navigator Website

Capital One designed and developed the Auto Navigator Website to make the process of buying and financing a car or truck simpler. The website focuses on adding transparency to what is often a confusing process by allowing you to pre-qualify for auto financing in just minutes. You can immediately see financing terms before even visiting a dealer.

By using this website you can get an idea of what your monthly payments and APRs will be. You can build your personalized offer and see how financing terms can be changed to fit your needs. Using the Auto Navigator Website does not affect your credit score in any way. Capital One will conduct a soft credit inquiry that is similar to how you would check your own credit score.

Consumers can browse more than 3 million cars and trucks from over 12,000 participating dealers across the nation, including dealers near you. There are many vehicles available to fit your individual budget. Consumers can also see reviews, ratings, and history reports of the different dealerships.

After you have researched the available inventory, selected the vehicles you like, and narrowed down the right financing terms, just take a printed copy of your Capital One pre-qualified information with you to the dealer. You can always make changes to the financing terms based on your discussion with the dealer regarding vehicle packages, optional accessories, and service contracts. Auto Navigator helps with these adjustments, taking the guesswork out of the process.

If you are in the market for a new car or truck, check out the Capital One Auto Navigator Website before heading out to the dealership to save some time. When you show up at the dealership you will already be a more knowledgeable consumer.
