Should I finance a used Nissan through the dealer or with another lender?

I want to buy a 2017 Nissan Rogue. The dealer told me they have the best rates due to the car being a certified pre-owned vehicle. Should I finance through Nissan Finance or should I go with another lender?

“Because the Rogue is a certified pre-owned vehicle (CPO), you might be able to get a better financing deal with the dealership.
As part of incentive programs, dealers and automakers often offer great rates to entice more buyers. That said, you shouldn’t automatically assume this is the best rate.
Shopping around with banks and lenders, like you would with car insurance companies is always advisable. Doing so ensures you’re not leaving money on the table.
Don’t forget that when you buy a new (to you) vehicle, you will need proper coverage. If you haven’t already found insurance, use the free Jerry app to help you find the best deal. Jerry compares rates from the top 50 companies in under a minute, delivering the best deals to your phone.”
