Zero Percent Financing Auto Loan

by : Bryan Burbank

Getting a auto loan can be an interesting undertaking. There are a lot of available loans out there for you and now many lenders are starting to offer zero percent financing, which can save you a lot of money over the lifetime of the loan. But you must be wary because many of these types of loan are ways of attracting new buyers and sometimes can have hidden fees and can cost you more than you will save in the end.

There are also very strict requirements to get this type of loan, usually the lender will require a credit score above 700+ and that can be a hard thing to come by for everyone that walks into the showroom. Usually an average person will have at least one negative mark on their credit history so it makes it hard to qualify for a zero percent loan.

The dealers also will offer this type of loan on certain cars only and usually they are not the most popular models available. Also they will offer vehicles which may be a great model but will be offered in strange colors or cars that have bad fuel economy. This is done so they are not stuck with slow moving cars and they can turn their inventory quickly.

Another thing that the lender will do is make the max for the loan 36 months so that the repayment is quicker but the only issue with this is that your payments will be higher and may make buying the vehicle unaffordable. it is important to do some investigation with different dealerships and make sure you know what is going on before you walk into the dealership so that you do not make any mistakes that will cost you in the long run.
