How Do You Get the Best Interest Rate?

In order to get the best interest rate, the first thing you’ll want to do is plan ahead. Check your credit history and note the score. The higher your credit score, the lower interest rate you’ll have. Also, keep in mind that this is something you can negotiate. So, what is a good car loan rate? Based on the chart above, depending on your credit score, this could be between 3.17% and 13.76%. Once you look at the chart and have a good idea of the rate you want, be prepared to negotiate if you’re offered something higher than you expected. And you don’t only want to focus on the payment and ignore the rest of the deal. Pay close attention to the details before agreeing.

What is the Average Interest Rate on a Car Loan?

On a three-year car loan, the average interest rate is around 3% to 4.5%. However, you may be offered differently based on your credit score as well as where you’re applying for the loan. The best way to make sure you’re getting the loan rates you deserve are to shop around and compare your car loans and interest rates.
