0% Financing Deals Available Until 2013
August 18, 2011
With the recent volatility in the stock market, the Federal Reserve announced that they will keep interest rates near 0% until at least 2013.
This means banks will be able to borrow money at near 0% interest, making it easier for them to offer low interest loans to consumers.
This is good news for car buyers since interest rates on car loans will remain low or possibly even head lower.
Right now, if you have excellent credit (check your credit score here), you can get an auto loan for as low as 2.9% from major lenders such as Capital One Finance.
In the near future, these rates may drop even lower - and these are loans with no incentives attached!
Right now, most car makers are offering a slew of financing incentives, with a good portion offering 0% financing.
We're sure to see these trends continuing until at least 2013 and we'll likely see more 0% financing deals with terms of up to 72 months.
