You have probably been given some terms that you dislike from your local dealer's finance department regarding getting a car loan with a low credit score. In fact, you have probably been turned down as many people are. You don't have to take the crazy interest rates that they most likely have offered you.
In today's hard economic times, online lenders are competing for your business. If you have unsavory credit, it means you will pay more money in interest which benefits the lender, unless you know where to go. The old saying, "it's not what you know, it's who you know", comes to mind. You will pay more in interest than a person who has better credit, but you don't have to pay the highest rate the finance department decides to charge you.
Let me explain.
The majority of Americans are not aware of how much money car dealerships make on your average loan. Let's say the finance company sends your dealership a fax that approves you for a loan with a rate of 9.5 percent. Now you will pay a higher rate thanks to the fact that the car lot will increase your loan. So you will pay a much higher price than you would through an online lender.
If your local finance manager knows you are in a hurry to get through the approval process, he or she may make you believe you need to spend more money than is required. You can avoid this rat trap entirely through using an online loan company.
Did you know there are online companies that specialize in helping people like you? Their approval processes are faster, easier, and have lower interest rates. You may be astonished to know that some of them are close to where you live, yet available online.
