    Default Car finance?

    We're thinking of getting a new(er) car. I can't seem to find any information on the interest rates on finance done through the dealer. I don't want to contact them because they don't leave you alone and we're really still just thinking about it.

    Has anyone financed through the dealer vs the bank and are the rates usually better? TIA

    We did, the rates were comparable so we went with the dealers finance because it was easier than worrying about bank cheques, etc.

    We applied for dealership finance and I felt they were being very dodgy about providing the loan details like interest rate, early termination payment etc. so I went with my own finance. If they can't be up front about the details of the loan then I wouldn't bother dealing with them.
