How to Get the Best Auto Loan Rates

Car Loan RatesA better rate is the key to saving money on your car purchase. Maybe you can't negotiate the price of your car down by $1,000 but if you can get your car loan rate down by just two percentage points, it could mean $1,000 savings over the life of the loan. Here's what you need to get the best rate:

  • Your Credit Score - Get it here free... No kidding, it's really free.
  • A Down Payment
  • A Trustworthy Loan Advisor

Your Credit Score

It’s no secret that a good credit score means a lower interest rate, but if you don’t know what yours is, how will you know what rate is fair? Plus, if you find that your credit score isn’t as good as you hoped, and you have the time, you can always work to improve it before you buy a car. A little effort could pay big dividends in the form of dollars saved over the life of your loan.

Down Payment

Having a down payment isn’t always a necessity, and sometimes circumstances make it impossible. That’s okay. But putting some of your own cash towards the purchase of your car helps in a couple of ways. First, it lowers your payments. Not only do you have less principle to pay back, your overall interest is lower because you’re financing less. Second, putting some of your own money in the deal is a signal to lenders that you’re fiscally responsible. You not only put money aside for the purchase but you’re probably a good bet to pay back what you borrow. Lower risk for lenders usually means better loan rates for you.

Trustworthy Loan Advisor

Finding a loan advisor who will put your best interests first is a necessary step to getting good rates. Some people have good relationships with their financial institutions and feel comfortable using them. Others might be more interested in shopping around for the best rates. And still others, maybe folks with bad credit, might have fewer options.
