10 Points on Low or Interest Free Loans

10 points on Interest Free, 0%, 1% and Low Rate Car Finance Options.


They Often Seem Too Good to be True.                   

Vehicle manufacturers offer no and low rate financing to increase sales.

Often these rates are only available for car buyers that meet strict criteria and have strong, proven credit histories. Low interest car loans are a click bait approach to finance.

0% finance and other low rate offers sound awesome, but these offers may not be as good as they sound.


Explaining How Low Interest Loans Work.

I will explain some of the issues with these offers and how they work.

  1. Low rate finance offers are designed to get people into showrooms. The offer usually applies to a certain range of models. Often run out models.
  2.  Not every car is eligible.
  3. Finance terms are usually for a limited number of years, a deposit is often required, and a residual payment could be part of the offer and you must meet their credit criteria. Check what the total repayments will be, no matter what interest rate has been quoted.
  4. The dealer and/or the manufacturer will not discount the recommended retail price and will request the full retail price. There is often no ability for you to negotiate the price. Ask the dealer if the price of the car is negotiable or if they interest rate is tied to the price of the car. You’ll soon know if low rate deal is tied to the retail price.
  5.  Dealers will often negotiate harder to pay you less for your trade. 
  6.  You may not be able to upgrade to a better model or upgrade the features on    your new car and still retain the special finance deal.
  7.   Finance terms may be inflexible. The terms are often set by the manufacturer.
  8.   Check for fees. Establishment fee. This is a fee charged by the financier to set up your car loan. Origination Fee. This is a fee charged by the dealer and is negotiable. Monthly payment fees. These are ongoing fees you are charged on a monthly basis and vary from lender to lender. Early repayment or termination fee. If you repay your loan before the full term is up, you may be charged a penalty by the financier. Make sure that you always make your payments on time to avoid damaging your credit rating and incurring additional fees.
  9. Read the fine print in the conditions.
  10.  Not all the 0%, 1% and other low rate deals are bad or won’t work for you. Do your homework and check them out first.
