Is there any reason I shouldn’t take dealer financing if they can beat the offer from a credit union?
Should I take dealer financing if their offer is better than my credit union? I have an offer from my credit union for 1.99%, but the dealership said they can beat that offer with .99% interest rate.
“A lot of times, the dealership will sneak in additional fees and add-ons when buying a new car. These can be hard to spot and will also make that lower interest rate loan actually cost you more in the end.
If the dealership is truly trying to earn your business and not just trying to increase its profit, then there is no reason you should not take them up on the offer. With a sizeable down payment, both the bank and dealer financing options can be good for you.
Just be sure to keep an eye out for any add-ons or fees.”

Can a dealer retroactively change your monthly payments?
Is it legal for the dealership said to ask me to come back in and resign on my new car and change my monthly payments. I put a large down payment on the car to keep my payments under $100 per month, but the dealer said this was too large an amount. What are my options?

I got a letter in the mail saying that I was denied dealer financing three weeks after I bought the car. What should I do?
What should I do if I received a letter my financing was denied? The dealership has not contacted me in any other way and I have received all of my paperwork from the lender.
