Car prices are rising, yet auto loan rates remain low, at least for the moment; in order to get behind the wheel, American borrowers are taking out larger loans today than ever before.
To help car buyers take advantage of the lowest auto loan rates today from local banks and credit unions, GOBankingRates released a list of the best rates in Cincinnati.
“Although rates on some loans, like mortgages, are increasing, auto loan rates are still relatively low and affordable,” said Amanda Garcia, reporter for GOBankingRates. “GOBankingRates consistently finds auto loan rates below 3% at many community banks and credit unions, such as New Horizons Credit Union’s current 2.50% APR rate.”
To provide borrowers benchmarks for comparison shopping, GOBankingRates also surveyed the average auto loan rates on the city, state and national levels.
Average New Auto Loan Rates:
|3-Year Auto Loan||3.08% APR||3.28% APR||3.26% APR|
|4-Year Auto Loan||3.00% APR||3.12% APR||4.01% APR|
|5-Year Auto Loan||3.59% APR||4.32% APR||3.58% APR|
