0% at what cost? How much is 0% costing you?
Understanding 0% or low interest dealer financing

The actual interest rate can be as high as 10%. How? Zero percent (O%) or low-interest dealer financing may sound great, but you may forgo $1000’s in dealer incentives and/or rebates.  You may be limited to specific models, model years, or vehicles on the lot. Low interest or 0% financing can sometimes be offered to promote slower selling vehicles and/or to make room for newer models. Additionally, you may be stuck paying the sticker price and your term of loan may be limited, resulting in a high monthly payment.

You could save more on your payments with a higher rate by applying those rebates to your loan!  Plus, you get to choose the vehicle you want, take advantage of the incentives, and negotiate the best possible price.

Buying a car should be fun!

We have very competitive New Vehicle Loan rates.  See us first when deciding to buy a vehicle; no sales tactics, hidden fees, or strings attached.  Just solid advice you can count on. Talk to one of our experts about your vehicle pre-approval loan today and get in the driver’s seat sooner!
