Can you consolidate Car loans?

Hi everyone,
 
Does anyone know if you can consolidate car loans? For example,  I have three loans right now:
 
  1. Hubby car - 63 mo at 6.5%, Opened January 08  - 17k
  2. Daughter car - 36 mo at 6.5% opened January 08 - 3k (could technically pay off, but wanted her to know responsibility of car payment before she's off on her own - is titled/loan is in my name)
  3. (spoiled) Hubby Honda Goldwing Motorcyle - 60 mo. at 10.5%, opened December 2005 - owe 6k still

Is anyone aware of a lender that would consolidate these into one loan and therefore one payment? What about if it were combined with a NEW loan for a car for me?

I'm paying $315 on the hubby car, daughter paying $95 on hers, and $215 on the bike.  Would love to consolidate into one loan, possibly lower average rate. 

My scores are: TU and Exp: 665, EQ: 743

Thanks for any advice!

because the loans are tied to an asset they usually won't loan more then the value of the car.

Exactly, cars are depreciating assets. When you do have the loans paid off, try
a suggestion from the Car Guys on public radio. Open a new savings account. Each
month deposit into that account what you would pay if you got a new car. Soon you'll
have some reserves for repairs, and after a few years driving a clunker you'll have
enough to pay cash for a late-model used car!
