Buying for the first time?

If you're young or new to Canada, this may be the first time you've bought a car! So you probably don't have a credit history. No worries. We're connected to Canada’s big banks and can access financing or leasing packages for your circumstances.

You might have a bad credit score or declared bankruptcy. If so, you may have been refused a bank loan. We can help in this kind of situation. Our options cover all kinds of credit circumstances. Go Mazda's Finance team will get you a solution that's affordable and fits your budget.

New to Canada?

You may not be aware that your credit score does not transfer when you relocate to Canada. However, the positive news is that we can still help you qualify for a loan, enabling you to purchase your first car in Canada in no time!

An existing loan with a high rate

Paying high interest rates on your existing loan can really impact your budget, and we can help. Our parent company, Go Auto, can buy out your existing loan and get you a better finance rate to lower your payments.

Finance vs. lease?

When deciding on financing versus leasing, what's right for one person can be totally wrong for another.

Here's what you need for approval

Start pre-approval
Employment & income

You need to meet two criteria to qualify for a loan. Firstly, you need to be employed at your current job for a minimum of three months. Secondly, your monthly earnings should be at least $1,800. It's worth noting that alternative sources of income such as government assistance or a pension will be considered.

Down payment

While it is possible to go without a down payment, a payment towards your new or pre-used Mazda definitely helps. The larger the down payment, the less you will need to finance and the greater the likelihood a lender will approve a loan.

Driver’s license

To be eligible, you must have a valid driver's license and have reached the age of majority in the province of your residence.

Current address

To complete your loan documents, you will need to provide the lender with your current address details. You will also need to include your monthly rent or mortgage payments and how long you’ve lived there.

Bank account

Lenders will need you to set up a recurring monthly payment, which will be automatically withdrawn from your account. To get started, you will need to provide them with either a void cheque or a standard pre-authorized payment form.

Contact details

You will be required to provide your full name, date of birth, phone number, and email address to apply for a car loan.

Extensive range
of lenders

Our list of lenders includes:

ATB, Bank of Montreal, Mazda Canada, Royal Bank, Scotia Bank, Scotia Dealer Advantage, Servus Credit Union, Carfino, TD Canada Trust, WS Leasing, and Dominion Leasing.

Go Mazda FAQs

What Should I Bring to My Finance Appointment?

All buyers should bring: 1. Valid government-issued driver's license 2. Current paystub 3. Void Cheque Depending on the specifics of your purchase, you may be required to bring additional information. For a complete list of what you'll need to buy or trade in a vehicle with Go Auto, call the dealership ahead of time and speak with a Sales Consultant.

Will I be approved?

Four main factors determine whether you get approved for a car loan:

1. Vehicle selection -- Cost, age, and mileage
2. Application information -- Employment history, residence, and income
3. Credit history -- Information contained in your credit file
4. Down payment -- Total of cash and trade equity

For the best chance of approval, and the lowest monthly payment possible, try to select a vehicle that fits your budget. Also, provide as large of a down payment as you can.

How are my car payments calculated?

Once you're approved for a car loan, three factors will affect your monthly payment (in order of importance):

1. Amount financed
2. Term or length of contract
3. Annual Percentage Rate (APR)

We offer competitive rates from a variety of finance companies to fit nearly every budget and credit profile. You can learn more about your personal finance options at any Go Auto dealership.

How do I budget for my car payments?

Most financial institutions advise that a customer spend no more than 15% of your gross monthly income on your car payment. For example, if you make $6,000 a month you should spend no more than $900 on your car payment.

What is my credit score?

Your credit score is a number that helps financial institutions predict the risk associated with your purchase of a car, house, credit card, etc. Typically, your credit score ranges from about 350 to 850, and is essentially meant to forecast how (and if) you will pay your bills. In general, the higher your credit score, the more likely you are to get approved for a car loan.

The systems that generate your credit score look at your credit report, and take several factors into account when determining your credit score, including, for instance, your payment history, and the number of inquiries made on your credit report.

  • The number and age of your credit accounts
  • Inquiries created by applying for credit
  • Public records such as liens and judgments.

Should I finance or lease?
