What are Car Payment Relief Programs?

Several automakers have set up programs to allow borrowers to defer loan payments if they are facing financial hardships due to the coronavirus pandemic. A car payment relief program gives you temporary relief from making payments for a specified period of time. Subaru is currently offering payment deferrals for 90 days. Many car manufacturers such as Subaru are offering special interest rates on new vehicle purchases. It is important to note that the missed payments are moved from the beginning of the loan repayment period to the end of the loan, increasing the overall length of your loan. 

Is Zero Percent Financing a Good Deal?

Yes! Zero percent interest loans offer significant savings to the buyer. For example, a buyer who gets a zero percent interest deal on a $25,000, 60-month loan would save $3,300 in interest charges, compared to a loan with a five percent APR. The car seller picks up the tab for the interest, similarly to the way it pays out traditional cash-back rebates. 

How do you Get Zero Percent Financing on a Car?

While lenders don’t typically share what your credit scores are required to qualify for a zero percent interest auto loan, credit scores of 700 and higher,  are typically considered very good, and would, therefore, give you a good chance to qualify. Zero percent interest car loans are only offered by auto manufacturers, not banks or credit unions, so this is something you must negotiate with the car dealer at the time of purchase. Starting your research by checking your credit score, and looking for auto manufacturers who are offering zero percent interest auto loans.

What is the Average Interest Rate on a Car Loan with a 700 Credit Score?

Car shoppers with higher credit scores, tend to have more financing options available to them, like longer terms and better lending rates. In general, the higher your credit score, the lower your auto loan rate will be. According to NerdWallet, if your credit score is between 660-780, you can expect a 4.56% average APR loan, on the purchase of a new car. If your credit is not perfect, keep in mind that many auto lenders use auto-specific credit scores that weigh past car-loan payments more heavily.
