3 Myths of Refinancing Your Car Loan

If you’re thinking about refinancing your car loan, but feeling unsure, we can help clear up some common myths.

The point of refinancing is often to lower your interest rate and monthly payment to help save money in the long run. These savings are possible.

Here are some common myths you don’t have to worry about.

Myth 1: Refinancing won’t save me much money.

This depends on your current loan details and the new interest rate after you refinance. While refinancing doesn’t always save you much money right away, it can save you a lot over time.
