Will car dealerships always offer 0% financing?
Will car dealers continue to offer 0% financing? I've noticed that car dealers have offered 0% financing for a long time.
“As long as 0% financing is selling cars, you’re likely to see it remain.
That’s because 0% financing is just another marketing tool designed to get people in the door.
While the dealer doesn’t make any extra money on the loan, the markups they have on the vehicles themselves is enough to make the business profitable.
Keep in mind that if you do get 0% financing, search the contract for what happens if you’re ever late on your payment. This is where most dealers recoup their money on lost interest and gamble that you’ll miss at least one payment.
Make sure you know what you’re getting into and avoid shady dealers before signing that new car loan.”

Can I bring my own credit report to give to lenders for a car loan?
Can I bring my own credit report to a meeting with a lender so they don't have to pull my credit? I want to buy a house in the near future, and I don't want a hard pull for a car loan to damage my credit right before shopping for a mortgage.

Do I have to give my car back to the dealer if they say it isn't eligible for a particular incentive?
"Do I have to give the car back if I've already signed the paperwork? I purchased a car from the dealer and received 0% financing due to my credit score. Now the dealer is calling me and asking me to bring the car back and work out a deal because my car wasn't eligible for the 0% promotion."
