How soon can I refinance my loan from a Jeep dealer?

I financed through a Jeep dealer to get bonus cash on my new Wrangler. After a month, I found a much better rate through my credit union. Can I make the switch?

Answer
While there is no technical timeline to refinance a car loan for a Jeep, you should wait at least 60-90 days.
It takes two to three months for your title to transfer from the dealer to the lender, and most lenders won’t consider a refinance without the title in hand. That said, your credit score likely dropped a little when you first applied for your loan because the lender will have made a hard inquiry on your credit report. You may want to consider waiting six months so you can build your credit back up.
If you’re a first-time borrower, most lenders will require one-half to one year of payments before they will refinance your loan.
Along with saving money on your loan, you can save money on car insurance.
