You have the right to take control of your auto loan

Whether you’re a first-time borrower or a pro, we can help you save money, avoid common pitfalls, and understand the total cost of your auto loan.

We’re here to help as you’re getting an auto loan

We are the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a U.S. government agency that makes sure banks, lenders, and other financial companies treat you fairly.


While many people shop around for the best deal they can get on their vehicle, not everyone shops for the best auto loan. Use our resources to learn how to prepare so you can save money, reduce stress, and get the auto loan that’s right for you.
