Oftentimes, a personal loan is an unsecured loan. That is, the loan is made purely on the basis of the borrower's trustworthiness, and not secured by some form of collateral. Car loans are different in that they are almost always secured loans, whose collateral is the vehicle itself. And that means that if the borrower fails to make his or her payments, the vehicle will be repossessed and sold to pay off the loan debt.
A car loan is pretty much what you think it is It is a personal loan, the proceeds of which are used to purchase an automobile. More specifically, a lender loans the borrower (you) the cash it takes to purchase a vehicle. In return, the borrower agrees to pay back the lender the amount of the loan plus interest, usually in monthly payments, until the amount owed is fully paid off. Pretty simple, so far.
