Frequently Asked Financing Questions


Should I buy or lease a car?

When it comes to driving your dream car home, you have a couple of options. Buying might be a good fit if you prefer to own your car for many years and you want to enjoy the freedom to customize your car and drive as many miles as you please without worrying about extra fees for wear and tear. On the other hand, leasing is a popular choice for drivers who prefer to make lower monthly payments and drive brand-new cars more often.

Can I start the financing process online?

Yes. Our secure financing application makes it easy for drivers to dive into the financing process from the comfort of home in Simi Valley or Calabasas so that you can save time at our dealership here in Thousand Oaks.

What is GAP insurance?

GAP insurance helps to protect you in situations where your insurance might attribute a value to your car that is different from what you owe. In such situations, getting into a collision might leave you with a gap that you need to cover, which is where GAP insurance comes into play. GAP insurance takes care of the gap between what you owe and the value set by your insurance, which saves you from having to shoulder the financial burden.
