Financing your vehicle for 60 months or less will result in a lower rate than a repayment term of 72 months or more, and it will leave you less vulnerable to negative equity. Loan size, in relation to the vehicle’s value, is another big factor. A larger down payment will result in a more favorable ratio, thereby minimizing your interest rate.
