Banks, original equipment manufacturers (captive finance), financial institution, and credit unions are some of the major distribution channel providing car finance solutions. Furthermore, a borrower can specifically apply for a car loan; however, consumers predominately prefer a personal loan for financing cars, which follows most of the same rules and procedures that apply to other loans.
