When you get a car loan through a manufacturer lending program, you could save a chunk of cash in rebates or via low-APR financing. Make sure you apply online and get a preapproval before you go into the dealership.
You can apply for an auto loan preapproval through the automaker or another lender. If you’re able to get a better offer from the dealer, you’re always free to change your mind and discard the preapproved offer. But having that preapproval can give you peace of mind and help you save money.
