When you finance through the dealership, you can benefit from different incentives like cash back and rebate offers.

Should I buy or lease a vehicle?
When it’s time to upgrade your vehicle, you have the option of buying or leasing. There are many great benefits of both. One benefit of buying a Honda is financing rates. You may have the opportunity to receive a rate as low as 0% APR with qualifying credit on your next new vehicle. On the other hand, leasing a Honda gives you more flexibility. You’re able to choose a different model at the end of your lease if your wants and needs have changed.
How do I get a low-interest rate loan?
There are multiple factors that determine the interest rate on your vehicle purchase. Things like the type of vehicle you choose, credit history, down payment and loan term-length. New vehicle rates are often the lowest, however, we work with a number of banks that will compete for your business. Your credit report which includes information on your open accounts, summaries of your current monthly payments and utilization of credit will factor in your rate. The down payment will determine if you qualify for a lower rate and will help you get approved. So, you’ll want to consider the down payment amount you’re comfortable with.
What can I do if I have bad credit?
Whether you have less than perfect credit or no credit at all, you’re in good hands at Germain Honda of Ann Arbor. Our relationships with multiple banks and local credit unions will help you get your credit score where it needs to be. All you have to do is simply fill out a form and you’ll be one step closer to getting pre-approved.
