What Insurance Coverage Do You Need on a Used Financed Car?

Finance Paperwork with Glasses

Do you need full coverage on a used financed car? The short answer is “Yes.” Financing a used car is a less expensive option than buying a new car, but dealerships still need to protect their investment during the financing period. Once the loan period is complete and the car title is in your name, you can have as much or little insurance as you choose. Learn more about insurance and loan terms below. Contact us to speak with a finance officer about payment plans and financing a car with bad credit.


Financing a Used Car: The Facts

A few states require full coverage but most states don’t. Although it’s not the law to have full coverage on a used car, most dealerships require it during the loan period. If you total the car, it needs extensive repairs, or gets stolen, full coverage protects the loss. You’re required to pay for full coverage during financing but you can opt-out of it once you’ve paid off the loan.
