Auto Refinancing

Refinancing can be an excellent option for people who currently have an auto loan and are looking to lower their monthly payment, get a better interest rate, or change how long it will take to pay off the loan.

In most cases, your credit score needs to be 500 or better for you to enjoy a lower rate. There are ways to repair your credit score -- this can be especially useful for people who have had credit issues in the past, and refinancing provides an opportunity to get more favorable financing terms.

What is Refinancing?

Refinancing can be an excellent money-saving strategy when you finance a car and did not receive favorable terms. The interest rate you are able to qualify for is largely determined by your credit score, so when you finance a car when you have less than perfect credit, it's likely that you received an APR that was higher than average.
