Great data point to add to this thread. Shows how much negotiating can do for your rate. I wonder if they knew somebody in underwriting and pulled a few strings to close the deal.

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:23

Re: Auto Loan Approvals!

To get the dealer down from 17% to 3% took some excellent negotiating skills and I applaud you for it.

I was going to call BS until I ran the numbers. Nice job on the negotiations! Nice job indeed.

Re: Auto Loan Approvals!

I cut the anchor and closed on my re-fi today!  Went from 17.1% with Capital 1 to 1.99% with DCU.  I had 4 1/2 years left on the old loan. Payment was $283.xx. New loan is 4 years with a payment of $233.82. Total interest to be paid is $452.21. I would have paid that on the other loan in 3 months! 

 

VERY worth checking them out!!! 

Cap 1 - $23,000 / Lowe’s - $17,000 / Barclay Rewards - $16,400. / Capital 1 - $15,000 / Walmart - $15,000
Cap 1 - $12,000 / PenFed - $10,000 / Penney - $10,000 / Barclay Apple Rewards - $4000 / Merrick - $2500


EQ - 740 / TU - 748 / EX - 748

Re: Auto Loan Approvals!

Joining DCU might be beneficial to you. With your score and Equifax being the bureau they pull your rate could be as low as 1.99
