Consider The Different Factors

There is a lot that goes into an Auto Loan decision. I'm personally shopping around for a newer used car right now and have tried to be smart and informed about the subject. A post that I found helpful was from this nonprofit organization, More Than Wheels: http://blog.morethanwheels.info/2014/05/14/5simpledecisionscouldsaveyouthousands/

Check out RateGenius.com

I used them in January, my score at the time was around 550.  They were able to find a lender for me that was able to drop my current rate from 16% to 4.75% saving me $141 a month off my payments.

The lender they found for me was through Arizona Central Credit Union. Did not need to be a member.  They as you guessed it are in Arizona, I am located in CA. But still got the deal to work.

In general, local credit unions often offer the best rates for auto loans. In some instancea, other national banks, such as Wells Fargo and Chase are also competitive.
