Play-Doh is a magical mixture that holds youngster's attention spans for hours as they roll out intricate snakes and colorful balls, sculpt turtles and snails, cut out various shapes or make impressions from stray leaves, shells or sticks. Eight model makers recently took the pastime to a new level, when they hand-sculpted 1.5 tons of electric blue modeling clay into a life-size replica of the new Chevrolet Orlando, a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV),  five door, seven-seater car geared toward families. The project took two weeks, and was casually parked along a London street as part of the UK launch.

When you need credit acceptance, Santander Consumer USA has several solutions. There are a number of sources for auto financing, including dealer financing, banks and credit unions, and third-party lenders who pre-qualify customers who need a a loan for a vehicle. The source for your auto loan will have a great deal to do with how successful you are in getting a vehicle you want and can afford. For many, the most obvious source for financing a vehicle is the auto dealership itself. Whether it's a franchised new-car dealer or a used car dealership, most car dealers have several financing options… Read More

Why do savvy consumers choose eloan auto loans over other types of financing options? An even better question is why more consumers don't choose eloans over the more traditional brick and mortar financing sources? Given the options available today, with so many companies offering financing at the click of a mouse, it just makes good sense to consider eloan financing for your next vehicle purchase. In the "good old days," someone who was shopping for a vehicle had only a couple of options when it came to financing. They could go to a dealership and take whatever was offered there. Dealerships generally have a few financing… Read More

Last week, I pulled into a Whole Foods parking lot and noticed something interesting: an electric vehicle (EV) charging station. You can not only purchase organic apples, you can also 'pull in and plug in' at certain locations! Maybe something to think about when you are applying for your next car loan! Consumers are still wary of the electric car concept, and it seems that providing convenient charging stations like this one makes the idea a better way to incorporate it into everyday lifestyles. It's estimated that ten years from now there will be as much as 190,000 electric cars sharing… Read More

I've seen this Chevy ad everywhere lately!  This commercial definitely made me laugh, but it also made me rush online and look up the new 2012 Chevy Camaro SS.  This car is truly stunning and comes with: 426hp V8 engine, 20 inch alluminum wheels, Brembo disc brakes, Heads Up Display (HUD) Interior features include leather seats, Boston Acoustics nine-speaker stereo system, and Bluetooth wireless technology.  The 2012 Camaro SS starts at around $35,000, but you can get the base Camaro LT starting at $22,000.  The base model comes stock with a 312-hp V6, which isn't too shabby. Want… Read More

There are many reasons you might need an auto loan early payoff calculator to figure out the loan payoff amount for your current vehicle loan. Maybe you're ready to replace your current vehicle, and need to know whether it's better to trade it in or try to sell your vehicle before you get another. Or perhaps you've received a lump sum -- a large tax refund or a bonus or inheritance -- and want to know how much interest you can save by paying off your loan earlier. Another good reason to use an auto loan early payoff calculator is… Read More

Some people wonder why it's important to prequalify for auto loan financing before beginning the process of purchasing a vehicle. It's a valid question, and one that even seasoned car shoppers sometimes ask. Consider a routine trip to the grocery store. You might just need a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread, or you might need to buy several hundred dollars worth of groceries. But if you went to the grocery store, would you ever go out and intentionally leave your wallet at home? It's a ridiculous notion, but heading out to shop for a vehicle without first… Read More

Auto Loan Amortization Chart Tips and More Generally people look for an auto loan amortization chart when they are searching for an auto loan to purchase a vehicle. The concept of a chart that allows you to see how the interest on your loan gets amortized over time is a relatively old one. Before the quick online calculators, an amortization chart was a necessary thing. Before the quick calculations that spreadsheets and online forms provide, these handy tools gave customers and lenders alike a good idea what the terms of a particular loan would be, without having to resort to… Read More
