How do I reduce the amount of interest I pay on a car loan?

I hate paying more money for things than necessary. How can I reduce the amount of interest I pay on a loan for my Ford?

Limiting the amount of interest you pay on a car loan is always a great idea! There are several ways to do it:
  • Shopping around for the best interest rate
  • Getting a shorter-term car loan
  • Paying more toward the principal each month
  • Making double payments on your due date
  • Making a lump-sum payment one or more times per year
  • Refinancing the car as necessary
Any of these should substantially reduce your interest.
