What we like and what we don’t like

The seamless online application process that Tresl offers may not outweigh the lack of disclosed rates, terms and eligibility requirements.
 

What we like

  • Prequalify with a soft credit check. There is no impact to determine if you prequalify for financing with a lender in the Tresl network.
  • Simple online application. The entire application process is handled online. You can upload your documents electronically to avoid the hassle of making copies and sending them by post.

What we don't like

  • Limited information available. Rates, terms, eligibility requirements and most other information is not available until after you apply to prequalify.
  • Lender fees. You could be subject to a loan origination fee, depending on the lender.

Auto loan types offered

Consider using Tresl to explore loan offers for auto refinancing, car lease purchases and company car purchases.
 

Auto loan refinancing

You can refinance your current loan with a lender in the Tresl network to get a better interest rate or more affordable car payment. According to Tresl, the average interest rate reduction is 5.57 percent, and borrowers save around $1,150 annually.

Lease buyout loans

Tresl can simplify the process of buying your leased car. You will have dedicated assistance from Tresl finance advisors. Plus, the entire process is handled online, and you won’t have to mail or fax in loads of paperwork or pay steep dealer fees. Most applicants receive final approval within 24 hours, assuming the requested documents are uploaded promptly.

Company car purchases

For those looking to purchase a company vehicle, Tresl’s partners offer loans with a variety of terms and rates. Most applicants are prequalified in seconds and fully approved in just 24 hours.

How to apply for a loan with Tresl

When you are ready to apply with Tresl, the first step is to get prequalified. It’s a five-minute process that entails inputting some basic contact and vehicle information into an online form to determine if there is a lender that might approve you for financing.

Next, you can compare any offers you prequalify for, select one that works for you and make any allowable adjustments to the offer to ensure it meets your financial needs. Finally, you will complete a formal application with help from a Tresl finance advisor to get final approval and secure the loan.

  • Affordability: This section houses APR ranges, acceptance criteria, fees and discounts. 
  • Customer experience: How long you have to shop, customer service availability, whether there’s an app and autopay availability are accounted for in this section.
  • Transparency: This category accounts for the availability of fees and rates along with whether prequalification is available.
