“For your first car, an interest rate of less than seven percent is a good deal. Assuming that the car itself is also a good deal, you can rest easy knowing you are not getting taken advantage of.
However, if that APR approval is from a dealer, you should at least shop around to try to find a better loan at a bank or credit union. You might be surprised and be offered a lower interest rate. “

Should I list my parents on my auto policy to get a lower rate?
I have always been listed on my mom and dad's auto insurance policy. Now that I've moved out, I have been shopping for my own. I noticed that when I included my parents as drivers, the rate went down. Is it okay for me to list them, even though they have their own policy?
