Thinking about 0% financing? Read this . . .
These days, more and more dealers are offering 0% financing, low-rate loans, or cash-back rebates. It's great to have choices but sometimes there are too many . . . that are confusing . . . and lead to added expense. In the final analysis, you may be better off with a conventional auto loan from your credit union. Here's why:
- Know the hidden costs in dealer financing options. Most 0% financing is offered on slower-selling models with lower resale values.
- Dealers' 0% financing or low-rate loans can have bigger prepayment penalties and may require a bigger down payment.
- Dealer financing plans usually are limited to dealer stock. That means you may have to sacrifice color, style, and/or options you want. Unwanted options can add 25% to 30% to the sticker price of your car.
- Typically only those with pristine credit are eligible for 0% financing from the dealer. Others with a blemish or two on their credit report may get "moved up" to a higher rate.
Often these offers are restricted to short-term loans such as 12 months or 36 months which can increase your monthly payment.
You are unlikely to be able to negotiate the price of a vehicle and could end up paying more for a vehicle in order to get 0% financing.
Rebates are smart . . .
If you choose the dealer's rebate plan, you'll forego the low-interest rate loan, but get a $1,500 or $2,000 cash rebate. Adding the rebate to your down payment can make credit union financing even more attractive - because the larger down payment reduces the amount you need to finance.
