Our new vehicle APR goes as low as 3.24% Annual Percentage Rate (APR). This applies to current model year vehicles or prior model year with fewer than 15,000 miles. Our APR over our max term of 84 months is 4.49% APR.
Used Auto Loan Rates
Receive a 3.24% APR for Used vehicles 2018 - 2015. Our rates increase to 4.24% APR for used cars between Used vehicles 2014 - 2011 and 6.49% APR for Used vehicles 2010 & Older.
Refinancing your existing auto loan might be beneficial to you as well. Benefits of refinancing include:
Lower monthly payment
Lower overall interest paid amount
Shorter loan term
Lower interest payments over the life of your loan
Cash to use for another purpose
Low Credit Auto Loan Rates
Don’t let a less than desirable credit score prevent you from applying for a loan. Our goal is to help you achieve your goals. We work with you to create an auto loan payment that will get you where you need to go.
Factors Impacting Auto Loan Rates
Several determinants go into calculating your auto loan rate. Knowing these factors will help you be more knowledgeable on the subject and be aware of what to expect when creating a budget.
Some of these factors include:
You can choose the length of time in which you want to pay off your loan. Term lengths range from 24 to 84 months. With a shorter term, you will receive a lower APR because you are agreeing to pay off your loan quicker.
With a higher credit score, you are subject to lower APR. A lower credit score equates to higher interest rates because your history of credit is important in determining your reliability.
Year of Car
The age of your car matters when determining your loan rate. A newer vehicle will get you a lower APR. An older vehicle will have a higher interest rate because it’s not as valuable or reliable. If you fail to make your payments, the resale value is much lower on an older car.
Where you decide to finance your car is a major factor in determining your loan rate. We encourage you to do your research when choosing your lender. Whether it’s through a credit union, bank, or dealership, look into who can give you the lowest rate for your situation.
At Ohio University Credit Union, we’re able to provide personalized service and comprehensive rates to encourage financial stability and wellbeing.
