Step # 1. Call the Dealership

This is the most important step you must take without delay. You must call the dealership and make your intention known. Tactfully lay out clearly the reason why you decide to cancel the loan. Don’t make the dealer feel inferior by downgrading the car.


Even if you don’t like the car, at least make an effort to mention certain features of the car you like. For instance, express your admiration how perfectly the rim fit and praise its appealing outlook. This can earn you good customer credibility. Not only that but it can put the dealer at ease to deal with you generously.

After all, this is good business ethics. You can be lucky enough if the dealer appreciates your generosity and decides to slash the amount you are to pay as penalty.


The reason why you should call the dealership quickly is this. The longer you delay the dealer assumes you are using the car. This would definitely make it more difficult to cancel the car loan. If you are quick to call the dealership, and be genuine enough like I said, you can be allowed to cancel the loan easily simply as a matter of returning the money.

Step# 2:Call The Bank

Step number two is equally as important as step one. After hanging up from the conversation with the dealership. Immediately call the bank at which you obtained the loan. As stated in step one, treat the phone conversation with courtesy. There are certainly good benefits associated with being polite and professional in communication.

As clearly as possible, explain the situation to the bank. Tell them that the dealership has agreed to take the vehicle back and that the money will be returned to them. Most loans do not have penalties for early payoff, and this is essentially what you will be doing.

Step 3: Pay Up The Accrued Interest

You will be asked to pay the interest that has accrued with the loan for the amount of time you have had after formalities are all set for you to cancel the car loan. Like I said earlier, the longer you hold the car, daily interest keeps building up.

Here’s how it happens. When you purchase a car on loan, the payment is sent to the dealership. But when you return the car, the dealership returns the loan amount to the bank.

      What a surprise. The hub score of this hub was bloody low at 56 yesterday night. The title was without the word "successfully" now see what we have, 86. Amazing how a single word in the title can affect your hub score. Lesson learnt for me.
