How do I decide where to obtain financing for my car loan?


Here are some steps to follow when deciding where to obtain financing:

 

  • Find the best deal: compare offers from banks, credit unions, and the dealer. 

 

  • Remember that dealer loans often are more costly. 

 

  • Compare the total cost for all loans (interest rate, length of loan, any other costs, contract terms). What is the bottom line total you will pay?

 

  • Be sure to read all contract information carefully before making a decision on a loan.
