Do You Need Full Coverage on a Used Financed Car?

Man with Car Keys

If you are ready to get an auto loan for a used car in Port Washington, you may find yourself asking “do you need full coverage on a used financed car?” While it’s not required by most states, it might be an option to consider depending on a number of factors. Learn more below with Rallye Lexus, your local authorized Lexus retailer, then explore our car buying tools like the finance calculator to estimate your monthly payments.



Financing a Used Car: The Facts

While most states don’t require you get full insurance coverage when purchasing a car, many finance lenders who want to protect their investments require full coverage regardless of whether your car is gently used or new. Here is a little bit more about how this process works:

  • Whether buying used or new, the auto loan term agreements will establish how many years you’ll pay a lender until you’re able to receive the title for the car.
  • For example, if you apply for financing and obtain a loan for a term of 36 months, your lender will hold the vehicle’s title for that period of time.
  • Full coverage insurance in this case is typically required for the entirety of the 36-month period of the finance period.

How Many Years Can You Finance a Used Car?

Factors like credit and what you’re able to put as a down payment on your vehicle will affect how short or long your finance period can be. If you’ve browsed all the used and reliable Lexus models for near Roslyn and you’ve found the vehicle you want, the next step is to work with the local dealership finance center, who will contact lenders on your behalf to shop around for a good loan. Some information the dealer may need:

  • Valid Driver’s License
  • Valid Car Insurance Card
  • Any supporting financial documentation (i.e. last two pay stubs)
  • Any existing vehicle documentation for your current vehicle (if applicable)

When you’re paired with a lender, your finance team member at Rallye Lexus will explain the terms the lender will offer you in order to finance your used car, and how long the finance period will last.
