Credit history: An official record that shows your ability to pay back loans in a timely manner, your current debt, and the amount you pay on a monthly basis.

Finance: The act of borrowing money from a bank to secure the car.

Interest rate: Attached to the loan amount and paid off along with the monthly payments, the interest rate is often shown as annual percentage.

Down payment: The amount of money you pay upfront when making a purchase. The larger the down payment, the lower your interest rate has to be.
