December’s 0 percent auto loan incentives are being offered across many different auto brands on remaining 2010 models, and also on several new 2011 models. To qualify for these 0 percent car loan incentives, you have to have a pretty good credit score.
Shoppers who don’t qualify for the 0 percent auto loan incentives can still save money on their car loan by shopping around at the local credit union or bank to get pre-approved financing before going to the dealer.
