How Can I Lower My Car Loan Interest Rate?

Can you lower the interest rate on a car loan in Newnan? This depends on your credit score, your lender, and a few other factors. Follow these steps below to start the process of getting a lower interest rate on auto loans:

  1. Check your credit score. If your credit score needs a bit of work, making improvements before you apply for an auto loan can help secure a better interest rate.
  2. Check for Refinance Loans. After reviewing our guide, you will understand the average loan interest rate based on credit score. You can use this information to shop around Fayetteville for the best loan and negotiate a more favorable deal. 
  3. Enlist a cosigner. Turn to a trusted family member or close friend who can cosign your loan. This is a great way to secure an opportunity to improve your credit score.
  4. Consider in-house financing. In-house financing means you will be working directly with the dealership instead of a traditional lender like a bank or credit union. This allows for some negotiating and wiggle room, as well as a chance to build stronger credit over time.
