CFPB and Auto Loans — Soldiers should take precautions when entering auto loan agreements. As a service member, you may face challenges when shopping for an auto loan. Frequent moves are a part of military life, but the urgent need to have a vehicle after moving to a new location – to travel to and from work, bring the kids to school, or simply run errands – may mean that you don’t have the time to get the best loan to finance your vehicle. You may rely on the lender or auto dealer to explain what your loan terms mean, but they may not clearly explain the extent of the financial obligation you’re taking on.
