Episode Info

Episode Info: Buying a car can be an extremely stressful situation. Today we’re going to break down how you can get the best deal on your next car! Can You Get a Great Deal on Your Car Loan? Cars and car payments are a way of life for many couples. According to the latest data I could find, there’s a record 2.5 million auto loans originated. Average monthly payments for new vehicles are $530 for new vehicles and for used cars, it’s around $381. That’s certainly a big chunk of their budget going to cars. Throughout the seasons, I’ve put out the offer to you to send in your money questions. I did a call for this season as well. And guess what? Car loans came up. A lot. Which isn’t surprising, considering that 85% of new car purchases and 53% of used car purchases use a loan. But if you get a car loan, is there a way to make sure it’s extremely affordable and if you decide to pay it off sooner, would the numbers work in your favor? It’s a challenge that I want to tackle today. By examining the numbers and pushing away the hype and ads, I think you can get a clearer picture of the real costs and then figure out what’s the best option for you. I’m extra excited because one of you lovely listeners is the guest. And Maggie actually pitched this topic to me in person. Maggie and her husband Ben are trying to figure out what their options are for buying a car. And they were kind enough to share their situation and questions. What’s cool to me about is that David Jacobs VP of Consumer from our sponsor and partner this season, Coastal Credit Union is going to give us some insights on the lending side.
