How do I refinance a car loan?

My boyfriend says now would be a good time to refinance my Nissan. How do I do it?

“In the digital age, refinancing a car is as simple as submitting an online application. The idea is to time the refinancing properly. Typically, you’ll want to keep an eye on car loan interest rates for a few months. This can give you some insight into whether the timing is ideal for refinancing.
In addition, you may want to consider refinancing for these reasons as well:
  • Your credit has improved enough to warrant a lower interest rate from the lender.
  • You want to lower your monthly payments (through a lower interest rate or by extending the term of your loan or both).
  • You find better interest rates with a different lender.
