Important Disclosures and Requirements
How Auto Navigator Works
Use Auto Navigator to pre-qualify for auto financing prior to visiting a participating dealer. We review the information you provide to determine whether you pre-qualify with no impact to your credit score. If you pre-qualify, you will be able to see your monthly payments, APRs and Offer Summaries for vehicles you may be considering. Remember, your pre-qualification amount can only be used for the purchase of one, personal use vehicle. The Offer Summary will include an estimate of the financing terms you could qualify for when you apply for financing at the dealer. When you are ready to finance a vehicle, take your Auto Navigator Offer Summary to a participating dealer to let them know you are pre-qualified for auto financing with Capital One. Remember, you can use your mobile phone to configure vehicles and compare your options at the dealer! If you have recently applied and funded another loan with Capital One Auto Finance, this might impact your eligibility for a new loan with this pre-qualification.
*Monthly Payment, APR, and Product Terms
Monthly payment and Annual Percentage Rate (APR) terms are not final until your financing is completed at a participating dealer. These terms are based on information you provide and might change if you update any information on our website or at the dealer. Terms online are provided based on common monthly increments of 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 75, and 84; however, other terms may be available at the dealership when purchasing the vehicle. Not all consumers qualify for these terms.
Pre-qualification does not guarantee that you will receive financing or any particular financing terms, which are subject to change based on our evaluation of your credit application submitted at the dealer and any required documents. Auto Navigator terms expire 30 days from the date your application is received.
To pre-qualify, you must be at least 18 years old, have a valid street address within the contiguous United States or an APO/FPO address. Minimum monthly income required is $1,500 or $1,800, depending on your credit qualifications. Any existing Capital One accounts must be in good standing (not over limit, past due, or delinquent).
Using Auto Navigator at a Dealer
When you visit a participating dealer, show them your Auto Navigator Offer Summary for the vehicle you would like to finance or check-in using your pre-qualification. Check-in will allow that dealer to access your pre-qualified terms and preferences, including cars you saved at that dealership (check-in is not available at all dealerships and is not a mandatory step). Then you will fill out a credit application and provide any information needed for review to complete your financing. A credit application at the dealer will result in one or more inquiries posted to your credit file. After negotiating purchase terms and receiving dealer credit approval, you will sign a contract with the dealer reflecting both your purchase and financing terms. Your purchase will result in a retail installment contract with the dealer as the original creditor. See our FAQs for more information.
Amount Financed Restrictions
For new and used vehicles, the minimum Amount Financed is $4,000. Your maximum Amount Financed may be based on income, key credit characteristics, the vehicle you are purchasing, the details of the financing deal, and/or the specific dealership from which you purchase the vehicle. The Amount Financed may include the vehicle sales price, tax, title, licensing fees, dealer fees, and any optional products like service contract and/or extended warranty that you choose to purchase from the dealer.
Military Lending Act Requirements
Due to requirements under the Military Lending Act, auto financing for certain members of the Armed Forces and their dependents cannot include GAP, Credit-Life, or Accident & Health Insurance, and other similar products.
APR is the Annual Percentage Rate. Advertised rates depend on the individual's credit and key financing characteristics, including but not limited to the Amount Financed, term, loan-to-value (LTV) ratio, down payment amount, and vehicle characteristics. A representative example of payment terms is as follows: a $1,000 down payment, an Amount Financed of $21,000 with an APR of 10.00% and a term of 72 months would have a monthly payment of $389.04. -Down Payment is required in some situations to complete purchase.

How Auto Refinance Works
- Pre-Qualification: Submit an application to see if you pre-qualify to refinance your current auto loan with no impact to your credit score.
- Credit Application: Select the offer that you want, review the information you entered and complete the credit application which will result in an inquiry posted to your consumer credit report and may impact your credit score.
- Finalize: Provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), E-Sign your contract, enter in your current lender details, and if needed, send in any supporting documents. The Capital One Customer Service team will then begin to process your application. After your loan has been finalized, you will need to provide us with Title Transfer documents that vary by state.
About You (the applicant):
To pre-qualify for refinancing, you must be in good standing (not over limit, past due, or charged off) on any other existing Capital One account. You must be in good standing on your mortgage and auto loan payments. You must be at least 18 years of age to apply. Applicants must have a valid physical street address within the contiguous United States at the time of application. P.O. Box addresses are not eligible for refinancing. An individual who does not have a physical street address may use an Army Post Office address or a Fleet Post Office address. A minimum monthly income requirement of $1,500 to $1,800 will apply depending on your credit qualifications.
Pre-qualification does not guarantee that you will receive financing or any particular financing terms, which are subject to change based on our evaluation of the credit application and any required documents.
Your pre-qualification expires 30 days from the date your pre-qualification application is received. You may use your pre-qualification on the expiration date, but not on any day thereafter. After pre-qualification, when you submit your credit application you will have at least 15 days to provide any required information or documents and sign your contract. If your offer expires before you are ready to refinance your vehicle, please re-submit a pre-qualification application to check your eligibility for a new offer.
Vehicle Type Restrictions
Capital One Auto Finance only finances new and used cars, light trucks, minivans and SUVs that will be used for personal use. Vehicles must be 7 years old or newer and have an established resale value.
Capital One does not refinance Oldsmobile, Daewoo, Saab, Suzuki or Isuzu vehicles, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, recreational vehicles (RVs), ATVs, boats, camper vans, motor homes, vehicles with a history of chronic malfunctions and/or manufacturer or dealer buyback (alternatively referred to as a lemon) vehicles, salvage title vehicles, branded title vehicles, lease buyouts or vehicles without a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or title issued.
We may determine a vehicle to be commercial or otherwise ineligible based on the model and/or information provided to us.
Loan Amount Restrictions
Minimum loan amount is $7,500 and maximum loan amount is $50,000. Your maximum loan amount may be based on your income, key credit characteristics, and the vehicle you are refinancing.
Your actual loan amount will be limited based on the value of the specific vehicle that you are refinancing. For the vehicle you want to refinance, the value is based on NADA or KBB trade-in value. The amount of this limitation may vary and is referred to as the “LTV” (loan-to-value) limit. For example, if the value of the vehicle that you are refinancing is $20,000, and your LTV limit is 110%, then your refinanced loan amount can be up to $20,000 x 110% = $22,000.
Auto Refinance Restrictions
Capital One Auto Finance only refinances loans from other financial institutions, not including Capital One subsidiaries. Your current lender must be an FDIC or National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) insured financial institution. Most banks, credit unions and larger auto finance companies meet this requirement. You must refinance the full payoff amount of your existing auto loan subject to our minimum and maximum loan amounts. We do not offer cash back refinancing or lease buyouts. We will only pay off your existing auto loan and will not finance new GAP coverage or any other credit-related ancillary product to cover any cancelled coverage due to refinancing. To determine if your GAP or other credit-related ancillary policy terminates upon refinancing, consult your agreement or contact your provider.
