I'll be buying my first car soon, and I want to understand the terminology and how it applies to my situation. What would my purchase look like if it is a purchase-money loan with the bank as my creditor, compared to how it would look as a credit sale with the dealer as my creditor?
I have to send my credit application to the dealer. But my eventual payments will be sent to the bank, after the dealer sales/assigns my installment sales contract to the bank. So who is my creditor under the Truth in Lending laws?
Also, I'll have to pay a finance charge

Once the dealer assigns the loan to a bank, the bank is your creditor.
