Getting a Good Deal on a Car Loan

Sep 3, 2008
While purchasing a car, we often try to snatch the best deal available in the market, in terms of interest rates and installment amounts. In current situation, the market is over flooded with a number of creditors having their own set of offerings to lure their clients. However, all these offerings, though they look attractive and cost friendly, are ultimately devised to mint money for the finance companies. Despite their claims of low interest rates and easy monthly installments, the actual document contains a number of hidden charges and payments in order to milk their customers. Thus, any hasty and improperly investigated decision would finally lead to financial mess for you.

"Loans available on 0% interest" often attracts the customers. But, in addition to this quote, we must also give a look to superscripted "conditions apply", or the attached offer-document with the proposal. This usually has all the ingredients to exploit the debtors and make most out of them. However, even in this situation, an inquisitive and attentive customer is capable of grabbing the best deal. By taking some vigilant measures, you can also save a lot of your bucks, and minimize the hassles during the course of repayment. Just follow the given guidelines while choosing the auto loan suitable to you:

* Inspection and Comparison- Go through the websites of different loan providers with their offerings. Check out the interest rates, installments and down-payments offered by them, and subsequently, compare the offerings. This exercise includes sharp enquiring and evaluating skills. Always keep a close look at the interest-rates, as it would have a long term effect over debtors.

* Selection of the Apt Deal- After comparing the different proposals, shortlist the most appropriate deal for you. Now, thoroughly read the proposal of the selected creditor again, and analyze it properly. If you find any clause ambiguous or difficult to understand, then you must go for an expert advice. Dig-out all the relevant details comprehensively, and clarify all your doubts regarding the interest-rates and installments with the agent. However, you can also bargain on interest rates, down-payments, and installments.

* If you have poor credit history, then you need not to loose hope at all. Creditors do provide loans to these people, but at some higher interest rates. All you need to do is to improve your recent credit history. Even, the bankrupt people can get suitable loan quotes, simply by improving their latest credit history.

* Always take your auto loan before you purchase a car, as it will enable you to draw your choices. The vendor would also take you more seriously, as he would expect hard cash from you, and hence would treat you as a good customer.

Internet definitely offers an easy platform to auto loan seekers, as they can access numerous loan providers in a relatively smaller amount of time. But, a personal visit to the company is always recommended, as it would help you in clarifying all your doubts. That is how to get a good deal on a loan.
