March new car shoppers will find an array of 0 percent auto loan incentives across many different vehicles and automotive brands. The interest-free deals are still available on some remaining 2010 vehicles, but more new 2011 models are also included in the incentive. Keep in mind that to receive these 0 percent car loan incentives, you have to have a good credit score.

Shoppers who don't qualify for the 0 percent auto loan incentives can still save money on their auto loan by shopping around at their local credit union or bank to get pre-approved financing before going to the dealer. This will help you get the best auto loan rate possible on your next new car purchase.
