How to Get the Best Interest Rate on a Car Loan?

If you have no credit or a bad credit rating, there are some viable options that can help you get behind the wheel of the vehicle you want with financing that is right for your budget.

What is the Average Interest Rate on a Car Loan?

The average interest rate for a three-year car loan in the Berkeley area is around 3% to 4.5%.
