For those of you that financed the car.

APR% ARE ALL DEPENDS ON YOUR CREDIT.
IF YOU HAVE A VERY GOOD CREIDT, RIGHT NOW YOU COULD AROUND 8.25%
THAT'S WHEN YOU HAVE A VERY GOOD CREDIT.
AND IF YOU GET A LOAN FROM SOME INTERNET BANK, SOMETIMES THEY OFFER LESS.

Hello 6days,

Check with your bank(or credit union), they may give better rates in the 7%- 8% range. The dealer(s) probably charge 10-14%.

Vancouver's dealer rates are 7.9% for 48 months and 6.9% for 36 months. I don't think any bank will give you anything better than that. Most banks offer 9%-10%.

One more thing to consider is the difference between 7.8% and 9% really isn't that much...sure it is decent money but don't feel like a dope if you can't get a better rate....blame the Fed.

Thanks a lot guys...I'll check with the credit unions a.s.a.p.

Getting the best rates really matter a lot to me. Every penny is hard earn, and having high rates means throwing money away.

And remember when financing not to fall into that nasty dealer reserve trap. If you have good credit and they come at you with 9% interest, more than likely you were approved at 6 or 7%, and they have jacked the rate. I think that junk should be OUTLAWED!

6.99 % at a local credit union. Check your local credit unions, because they usually are lower than the major banks.

A difference in 'a' percentage point varies ie:

the diff between 6.9 and 7.9 or 7.9 to 8.9 is roughly:

$600 for a 5 year term, $400 for 4, and $300 for a 3 year term.

7.75% at my local credit union. Out of principal,I would never pay Lexus's rates. Their best rate is 9.99%. HAHAHA what a joke. They jack up the price 6K then they tack on an extra 3-5% on interest.
