How Do You Get the Best Interest Rate?

Plan ahead by reviewing your credit score. You will also want to prepare for negotiating. So what is a good car loan rate? Based on our chart above, it’s between 3.17% and 13.76%, depending on your credit score.

After you’ve looked at this chart, plan the rate you want to get and be ready to negotiate if they offer you a higher rate than expected. Another thing to be careful of is the offer. You don’t just want to focus on the payment and ignore the rest of the details. Pay extra close attention to the details.

What is the Average Interest Rate on a Car Loan?

On a three-year car loan, the average interest rate is about 3% to 4.5%. A different rate may be offered based on your credit score as well as where you get your loan. In the end, the easiest way to compare car loans and interest rates is to shop around or get pre-approved and compare that way.
