Shopping around the Yukon area for good interest rates on a car loan doesn’t have to be intimidating or discouraging. If you plan ahead, you can help ensure a better APR (Annual Percentage Rate) on a car loan so you can bring home a new, certified pre-owned, or used car for a price you can be proud of. As you familiarize yourself with the chart below to see how your credit score and other important factors can influence the interest on a car loan, note where you may fall based on your current situation. With any other questions regarding financing a new-to-you vehicle, contact our Westpointe Chrysler Jeep Dodge finance team today.

How Do You Get the Best Interest Rate?

There are a few steps you can take to secure the best possible interest rate for your lifestyle in Oklahoma City:

  • Know Your Credit Score
    As you may have noticed in the chart above, your credit score is paramount in determining what is a good car loan rate for each individual driver in Yukon. Check your credit report frequently and spend some time strengthening it by making regular, timely payments if it is not in the best shape. The higher your credit score, the lower your Annual Percentage Rate will be on your car loan.
  • Shop Around
    To get the best possible interest rate, you’ll want to compare the rates you are quoted. If you shop around for car loans at different financing entities around Mustang, you’ll be more prepared to determine what rates are the most competitive. Knowing your options gives you the ability to choose the lowest.
  • Prepare to Negotiate
    The rates that you are quoted are not set in stone — you have the agency to negotiate your rates down to a more manageable number. Be ready to read the fine print and take a comprehensive look at the full offer.

What Is the Average Interest Rate on a Car Loan?

El Reno car-buyers can expect the average interest rate on a three-year car loan to range from 3% to 4.5%. Again, your credit report is what ultimately determines where your rate will fall within this window. Also, average interest rates on car loans can vary based on whether the vehicle is new or used.
