Our team is committed to sharing their insider knowledge of the auto industry with you so that you can get the best deal on your new Ford car. Here’s a list of some of the most common finance terms you’ll encounter when you go shopping at our Connecticut Ford dealer.


Leasing: Leasing is a very common finance term, that basically means renting. Essentially, you’ll sign an agreement to lease a vehicle that will require you to make monthly payments. At the end of your lease, you’ll return the vehicle and stop making payments on it. 


Default: This word refers to what occurs when an individual fails to comply with the terms of their loan. If a person defaults on their auto loan, their vehicle may be seized. To avoid defaulting, be sure to know the specifics of your auto loan.


Cosigner: A cosigner on an auto loan is someone who assumes equal responsibility for the terms of the loan. This is a good option for first-time car owners or those who may not have the best credit.


Collision Insurance: As the name implies, this insurance is designed to provide coverage in the event of an accident, or collision. This is a great type of insurance to buy in addition to standard auto insurance.
