If you aren’t paying cash for your next vehicle, there are two ways to you can finance a used car when buying from a private seller – at a bank or through a credit union. It’s always important to do your research and look around for the best rate, but usually a credit union will give you the lowest one. The rates fluctuate so it’s best to check a site like Bankrate for the latest information. After you have determined the current rate, call your local bank and credit union to see if they can beat it.
Finding the best car loan depends on how much you’re going to spend and the length of the auto loan. The term varies and on used cars can be anywhere from 36-72 months – the longer the term, the lower the monthly payment, but something to bear in mind is that you will be paying more in interest. Use a calculator to determine, which term is right for you.
