Auto Loan Question For Those in the "Know"

So, I have seen a lot of auto loan questions flying around lately and to be honest never really gave it a second thought, but with the economy the way it is I figured I would as those in the "know".

So I have a 799 credit score and took out a 15K HELOC last summer. Little to no credit card debt [under 2K per month]. Mortage, and no other bills.

What kind of rate will I be looking at for a 60 month loan?

Thanks in advance.

Based on how much equity you have built up on your mortgage, You might want to look into getting another HELOC . I've been looking and they have been hoovering around 5% or so. Another bonus of doing it that way is so you can write off all the interest that you paid on it when you do your taxes the following years.

My credit rating was crap 10 years ago. It was around 580 or something like that. Ended up getting married, paying off credit cards every month, paying off both car loans that we had, buying a house and then paying additional principal on it... All without any late payment in the last 1O years. Also having lots of equtiy built up on the house which helps also. We also had lots and lots of different credit lines that we have had in the past, some still open, others closed without any defaults or late payments.
I need to shut up now, knowing my luck, I'll get laid off of work tomorrow and will have to sell everything.. lol

Wow you better let FICO know about your score because I believe the highest is 850 and that is really unheard of. Sure it isn't 839 which is likely?

Now of course unless they changed the high end in the last week.

Well, I am sure it is different between the three credit bureaus, but Trans Union gave me 939 and that my rating is 94% better that the U.S. population. My wife checked her rating later that night with a different bureau, I think it was equifax? Her rating was at 917.
So, if fico only goes to 850, I dunno, I suppose I am just special.. lol

Not sure where you are checking your scores, but 850 is the highest score you can get. I have been pulling peoples credit for over 20 years, and the highest score I've seen is 834.

There are many different "scores." I have personally seen 1 score over 900 in 20+ years of doing financing, so yes that is very possible.

It varies by location, but I would think that you could get low 5's for an interest rate, with your score of 799. There is one credit union in our area doing 4% apr until 02/02/2010.

I thought about that too, but tying that to prime,,,,, bit risky for me. Now, if I went with the fixed, different story. Its worth looking into. Thanks.

So, what's the word from GM on financing? What's the scuttle butt on financing options for the Camaro?

I don't believe there will be any special apr on the Camaro when it debuts, but only gm/gmac knows for sure. The subvented interest rates are usually used to help sell cars that aren't moving. No worries for the Camaro for now, so probably no incentives.
