Why refinance your auto loan?
The number one reason to refinance your auto loan is to simply save money. Maybe you didn't get the best rate when you purchased your vehicle. Maybe your credit has improved since your purchase and you can now command a lower interest rate.
When you refinance your auto loan with Gulf Winds, you can refinance it for however many months you have remaining on your current auto loan. That way your payoff date won't be extended but you will still save money with our lower rate.
Gulf Winds offers:
An auto loan refinance can be a great way to save money every month with lower payments and better rates.
For example, say when you purchased your vehicle, you financed $26,000 over six years at 5.49% APR. Your monthly payment is $424.66. One year later, you've paid over $1,300 in interest! At the end of the six-year loan, you will have paid more than $4,500 in interest.
