*** Nationwide offers auto loans for both franchise and private dealerships. After being approved and given a unique funding code from the Nationwide Payment Center, you can immediately share this information with the seller or dealer so they could have the funds to purchase the vehicle deposited directly.

Auto Loans at Nationwide

Nationwide makes auto loans quick and easy by offering a complete auto loan service that moves you from application to having the funds directly released to your franchise or private dealership. Rates, however, are on the pricier side even with its 1% rate discount for automatic ACH payments.
