How Your Credit Score Affects Auto Loan Rates

As with any type of personal loans, having a high credit score will help you secure the lowest rates on your auto loan. Make regular, on-time payments to your credit card accounts and keep your balance low compared to your credit limit and it is likely that banks and lenders will increase your limit and offer you a more competitive interest rate.

Lenders like to see high limits with low balances, because it demonstrates you are trustworthy and responsible with your spending, credit and time management.
If you have a low credit score, especially lower than 600, you may want to quickly get a copy of your credit report and see where you can improve your score.
