How Do You Get the Best Interest Rate?

To get the best interest rate on a car loan, you’ll want to plan ahead. Take a look at your credit history and take a look at the score. The higher the score is, the lower your interest rate will be. You’ll also want to be ready to negotiate. Take a look at the above chart and be prepared to negotiate. Also, you’ll want to be careful of the offer. Don’t just focus on the payment and ignore the rest of the deal. Pay attention to the details!

What is the Average Interest Rate on a Car Loan?

On a three-year car loan, the typical interest rate will be between 3% and 4.5%. You might get a different rate based on your credit score and where you’re getting a loan. We suggest as a Douglasville driver that you check multiple sources to get the best deal on your auto loan. The bank or credit union might offer you a better rate, but one thing the bank can’t offer is the convenience of buying and financing in the same place.
