Is a 16% APR on a used 2018 Honda Accord too high if my credit score is 675?
"I want to purchase a 2018 Honda Accord. When I went to the dealership, they ran my credit and offered me a five-year, 16% APR loan.
Is 16% APR too high if my credit score is 675?"
“Although your credit score isn’t stellar, 16% seems a bit high for that car loan, especially for 60 months.
If you only went to the financing department at the dealership, then that’s a mistake. You should always shop around to find the best rate, just as you would with car insurance.
Try credit unions first, as well as local, regional, and national banks. You should be able to find something for your Honda Accord at a much lower rate than 16%.”

What can I do if a dealership forced me to get gap insurance?
When finalizing my car purchase, the salesperson really pushed gap coverage. I didn't want it, but was told that my monthly payments would remain the same even if I added it on. I called the bank this morning, and they said the gap coverage was optional and will cost an extra $650. Is there any way to cancel it now?
