Message From Our Editor

What we love about Citizens One Auto Loan

Citizens One Auto Loan works with car dealerships to offer financing to people who want to buy cars. It offers flexible loan terms, letting you take up to 84 months to repay your auto loan. You can finance both new and used vehicles and Citizens One’s minimum credit score is lower than many other large lenders’ requirements.

Citizens One is also widely available. The lender operates in more than forty states and works with more than 6,700 dealerships.

What could Citizens One Auto Loan do better?

One drawback of Citizens One is that it primarily does financing through dealerships. To get a loan offer, you’ll have to visit a dealership in-person and apply for financing there. That means you can’t get a loan offer before you go out, which can help you know what you can afford and give you a stronger position to negotiate.

Citizens One also doesn’t offer refinancing. It’s only for the purchase of new and eligible used vehicles.

Finally, Citizens One doesn’t have the best IT systems out of major car lenders. Setting up an account and managing your loan online can be a hassle, which is the last thing you want when you’re trying to make sure you pay your bills on time.

Citizens One Auto Loan’s backstory

Citizens One is the financing arm of Citizens Financial Group, one of the larger banks in the Northeastern United States. It offers auto loans, personal loans, student loans, mortgages, and credit cards to consumers.

The Verdict

Citizens One’s auto loans are the type of loans that you generally seek out. More frequently, you wind up working with Citizens One when you apply for financing at a dealership. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as you may get a good deal or a discount from the dealer. Still, it’s in your best interest to shop around for loans before going to the dealer’s lot and to keep Citizens One loans in mind as one of your options while you shop.
