To buy a car, the funds required may not be affordable for you to pay as a lump sum. But purchasing a car may be more of a necessity to you than a luxury. In such a situation, the most feasible option seems to be secured car loan. With the help of secured car loan, the borrower can fulfill his need and also not feel any burden of the same.

Any asset of the borrower like a house can act as security for the secured car loan. Most of the times, the car that is being financed acts as the security. When the deal is closed, the papers of the car are kept by the lender of the secured car loan though the borrower can use the car meanwhile. When the whole repayment of the secured car loan is done, the papers of the car are returned to the borrower.

The amount that is approved under the secured car loan is below the value of the car. So first of all, the borrower should know the price of the car. The repayment capacity and value of property placed as collateral also determine the amount of the secured car loan. Usually secured car loan are to be returned in short period of 5 to 7 years.
