“Because you’re young, and your credit score is below average, you might have a tough time finding a loan.
To exacerbate the problem, $10,000 means you’re probably buying a used car, which can also increase your rate.
Your best bet is to start at a credit union—these organizations can offer lower rates because they’re nonprofit.
There’s no telling what your interest rate will be until you apply. However, try to find a loan for 60 months or less. Any length longer than that, and you could end up upside-down (meaning your loan balance will be higher than the car’s value).”
