Used Car Financing Made Easy 

At Hawthorne Auto Square, we pride ourselves on doing what it takes to get you into the car of your dreams without breaking the bank. We have a stress-free finance department to handle in-house loans. 

Apply in person at the dealership or use our online pre-approval portal to get the annual percentage rate (APR), loan amount, and monthly payments you qualify for without the long wait for a bank to call you back. A pre-approved amount gives you the edge when shopping for a car. You don’t have to buy right away — use it as a starting point, work to improve your credit, or wait for the right deal to come along, knowing you can get it when you want.

Interest rates for used car financing vary depending on the issuing institution, such as a bank or car dealership, and your credit score and financial history. We don’t want you to be buried in debt you can’t afford. That’s why we focus on 48-month loans rather than six or eight-year loans. 

We’re the biggest buy-here, pay-here car lot in Torrance and the surrounding area. Whether you have bad credit, no credit history, or you’re just on the hunt for a fantastic deal, our in-house financing solutions offer competitive options for a buy-here, pay-here solution in Torrance. 

If you’re looking for a buy now, pay later in Torrance with flexible payment options, look no further. We offer a Take Five Months program, which allows you to take up to five months to pay your down payment. Taxes are due the day of signing, and you can drive off the lot with the car.

We’re one of the few “little to no money down” dealerships in Torrance. It’s yours as long as you maintain your money-down payment schedule.

How can I check the history of a used car?

We provide a history of every pre-owned car on our lot. Hawthorne Auto Square is a CARFAX® Advantage™ dealer, which means we’re committed to transparency with all our sales. We pull a CARFAX report before purchasing any vehicle and pass these reports on to our buyers so they can enjoy the same peace of mind. 

How many miles am I comfortable with on a used car?

While we can’t tell you your comfort level, we can offer advice on commonly accepted mileage values per car year. Reasonable mileage per year is roughly 12,000 miles, which means a four-year-old car should have about 48,000 miles.
