Let's Help You Control Your Finances and the Road!

Both Auto Loan options are great for someone who has little-to-no credit and feels like their financing options are limited. We are here to help you avoid the roadblocks and get you on the road and to build your credit!


What Factors into Getting Approved?

There are many factors that AMOCO and other financial institutions look for before approving a loan. While the factors below aren’t all required, all are considered when making a decision. The best part about financing with AMOCO? We are here every step of your financial journey, and our trusted lenders will work with your particular situation to help get you to your goal of being a car owner.

Factors we Consider:

What is Payment-to-Income or PTI? It is a calculation used by lenders to help determine your eligibility to finance a vehicle. Your PTI is determined by dividing the anticipated monthly payment by the gross monthly income (the amount you earn before anything is taking out). For the First Time Car Buyer Program, AMOCO is looking for a PTI of 18%. 

What is Debt-to-Income or DTI? The percentage of your gross monthly income (the amount you earn before anything is taken out) that goes to paying your monthly debt payments (existing loans, rent, etc.). For the First Time Car Buyer Program, AMOCO is looking for a maximum DTI of 45%.
