Start at your bank or financial institution to find out how much of a loan you can get approved for and what borrowing the money will cost. This is handy information to have before heading to a dealership because the automaker’s finance rates may be different than your bank’s.

Interest rates can also change at the dealership depending on the car you are interested in. Some newer or more popular models may have a higher interest rates than other vehicles on the showroom floor.
