New Cars - A Reality Check Owatonna MN

There is a common misconception that new-car dealers finance the cars they sell or lease. Not true. Dealers don't make loans or finance leases. A dealer may run a preliminary credit check on you prior to completing your paperwork, but this should not be interpreted as approval of your loan or lease application.
