Did you know that the age of the vehicle when it was purchased has a significant impact on the car loan rate?
When we decide to buy a car, several decisions require reflection. First, choose a new or used car? It is important to weigh the pros and cons according to your budget and your needs. If you do not drive a lot and you have a small budget, it may be worth thinking about buying an opportunity. Be careful to ensure that the quality / price ratio is correct in relation to the age and the state of wear of the car (the number of kilometers, possible claws, the state of its parts …). On the other hand, buying a new car is a longer term investment and safer.
Unlike insurance, the cost of a car loan is lower for a new car. At Jean Des Esseintes, if you buy a new car or less than two years old, the Fixed Annual Effective Rate (APR) varies around 1.99%. It varies because the amount of the car loan and the repayment period are taken into account. For cars 3 years old or older, the interest rate fluctuates according to the age of the vehicle. The older the vehicle, the higher the rate will be.
