Benefits of Paying Cash for Your RAV4

If you want your RAV4 free and clear, so you can drive it home with absolutely nothing hanging over your head – no payments, no fees, no interest, no debt incurred – then paying cash in full might be the best way to go. If you want, you might even pay cash for a portion of the full price and finance the rest. It’s kind of a “best of both worlds” approach that will allow for incredibly low monthly payments on the portion of the cost that you do finance.

And it’s worth a reminder that with the amazing prices, special offers, and incentives we have at any given time at Limbaugh Toyota, any cash you do pay out will pale in comparison to the great bargain price we can offer you.

Benefits of Financing Your RAV4

For a big-ticket item like a vehicle, sometimes it just makes more sense financially to spread out the payments into more manageable increments. An automotive loan with low interest rates can be yours when you shop Limbaugh Toyota and turn to our financing experts for help.

Here’s something you may not know: Sometimes, manufacturers offer special savings and discounts if you finance through one of their preferred lenders. If that’s the case when you buy your RAV4, then you’ll enjoy an even more attractive deal!

There are also credit benefits to consider. If you are a first-time buyer who hasn’t yet had the opportunity to establish a strong credit history, or if you want to rebuild your credit after it has taken a hit or two due to a variety of circumstances, then financing a vehicle is a smart way to achieve credit security. Make your payments consistently on time, and you’ll be well on your way to a brighter financial future.
