No interest loans, if financed through their corporation, are plentiful right now on new cars. Manufacturers are even offering longer loan periods and offering options to not make your first payment for several months. Most often, these incentives are only available to those with excellent credit and who are looking to purchase a new vehicle.
If you are looking to purchase a used vehicle, or your credit is less than perfect, the best way to get lower interest on your loan is to shop around different financial institutions. Changes in interest rates are happening daily and to find the best rate for you, you will have to put in time and effort to compare several financial institutions. Remember, you will likely have to do most of your shopping on the phone as many places are still closed or only open for limited hours.
Different financial institutions lower their rates at different times so a few phone calls could save you thousands in interest on your loan. Because the economy is still shaky, some banks don’t want to take on any loans that may be a risk to them, so they are pricing their interest rates very high to drive people to seek other options. Other lenders are making their interest rates very low to offer as many loans as they can.
This is why you need to carefully compare several places. Your credit score will drastically affect what interest rate you are offered. Once you have a pre-approved amount, take it to the dealership and see if they will offer any incentives to convince you to get your loan through them.
Most experts agree that there is no way to know exactly what will happen to interest rates in the next several months. Many factors are unknown. Right now, interest rates are still low, but slowly rising, so if your job is secure, it may be a good time to search for a new vehicle.
