October’s 0 percent auto loan incentives are very similar to what was being offered last month. Most of the 0 percent deals are available on leftover 2010 models, but some new 2011 models are also included.
Shoppers who don’t qualify for 0 percent auto loan incentives can still save money on their car loan in other ways. Most consumers who have good, but not excellent, credit can still get approved for discounted rates on their auto loans through the manufacturer or their credit union, bank or private lender.
