Recent statements from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau have left car buyers worried that their local dealership will intentionally set them up with a high interest rate.
In a recent commentary for Automotive News, Jim Henry explained why that is simply not the case. Auto dealers are actually more motivated to get their customers a lower interest rate than, for example, a mortgage broker because a mortgage broker will only make money on the mortgage. When it comes to an auto loan, a dealership is set to make money, even if they take a lower interest rate, because the dealership will make money on the service of the car.
Besides this argument, there is great availability of low-interest auto loans to consumers, even those with bad credit or no established credit history. Car buyers can negotiate lower monthly payments, lower interest rates, longer loan terms, or whatever they need for their particular credit and financial situation. All it takes is a car buyer sitting down with a dealership’s finance department and exploring their options.
