Message From Our Editor

What we love about Capital One Auto Navigator

Capital One Auto Navigator makes it easy to get pre-approved for a car loan before you visit a car dealership. You can also set your desired terms for an auto loan. The tool can pre-approved you without affecting your credit and will direct you to a participating dealership. You can also view dealer inventory online so you can do most of the car buying through the internet. All you have to do in-person is test drive the car and fill out an official loan application.

What could Capital One Auto Navigator do better?

Capital One Auto Navigator places some restrictions on the vehicles that you can buy. For example, it has a maximum and a minimum loan amount, only finances cars, SUVs, minivans, and light trucks, and certain makes and models are not eligible. You also need to have decent credit to qualify for a loan, so if you’re looking for a lender that will work with people with poor credit.

You also need to work with a dealership that’s in Capital One’s network, which may limit the inventory of cars that you can see and may mean you don’t get to visit a dealership that you’ve worked with in the past and liked.

Capital One Auto Navigator‘s backstory

Capital One is an American financial company that was founded in 1994. It offers a variety of banking and credit products. It expanded into offering auto loans in 1998.

The Verdict

 Capital One Auto Navigator is a good choice if your desired vehicle meets the requirements and you like doing your shopping online. If you enjoy the process of going to the dealership and shopping for a car, or have a specific dealer that you want to work with, you may want to choose a different lender.
