Finance through the dealer or get pre-approved?

My wife and I went to a Honda dealership recently, and they ran our credit. They offered us 6.8%. I believe our Experian scores were around 750. Should I look at getting a pre-approved auto loan online or stick with the dealer for financing? Thanks

6.8% for those credit scores is too high.  Shake them down or get financing elsewhere.
For a 48 month loan on those scores you should be at like 5.25%
