“An 800 score qualifies you for the best interest rates, but it’s not the only factor that’s used to determine your APR.
Your approval and your APR are also based on your income, debt-to-income ratio, loan-to-value ratio, and credit score.
If you have low debt, if the car is priced right, and if you make enough money, you could reasonably expect an interest rate of 3% or less, as long as your loan is 60 months or less.”

"My license is currently suspended, but when I went to the DMV, the person helping me told me that I just needed to fill out the SR-22 form and I could get my license back. Is this true, even if I still owe money for a ticket? What exactly is the SR22 form, anyway?"
