Used Auto Loans in Omaha

You’ll see that the interest rates for a used car or truck are more expensive than those for a new one. Higher interest rates for used cars, however, are balanced out by more affordable down payments, monthly payments, and insurance premiums. Here, we look at the cost of financing a car that’s new versus a few years old.

Years Old Price Rate Months Payment Interest Total
New $29,000 6.00% 60 $560.65 $4,639 $33,639
1 Year $23,200 7.50% 60 $464.88 $4,693 $27,893
2 Years $19,720 7.50% 60 $395.15 $3,989 $23,709
3 Years $16,762 7.50% 60 $335.88 $3,391 $20,153

For most of us, a second hand vehicle is the best option. Typically, you can get a car loan for a vehicle that is up to ten years old. Mileage restrictions often apply.

Poor Credit Car Loans in Omaha

Have a FICO score that’s 620 or lower? Some people are afraid to check their credit scores, because they just don’t want to know. The thing is, though, this can be damaging. Although poor credit always results in a higher rate of interest, you can now request quotes from various lenders online.

If your credit is really poor, you may be tempted by a dealership that promotes buy here pay here loans. The rates are very steep, and the cars and trucks are often price over market value. You’ll want to steer clear of these dealerships when you can, and secure a car loan online. The down payments are lower, as are the rates, and the service tends to be a good bit superior.

Go here to apply online.

Can a Car Loan Improve Your Credit?

When you need to enhance your credit score, a car loan can help–provided that you pay the installments as scheduled. There is no instantaneous increase in your credit score. Rather, it should increase gradually as time passes. It isn’t possible to determine how many points you credit score could improve, as it depends on a variety of factors, but the increase is usually substantial.
