Best Used Car Finance Deals for May 2015

If you’re going to shop for a used car in May, you may want to take a look at some of these great used car finance deals being offered from several of the manufacturers.

Most car brands are offering low interest rate financing on their certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles and there are even a few finance deals that include a couple payment credits. This is where the automaker will pay a few of your future loan payments for you.

If you’re not in the market to buy a car, there’s no rush. Although some of these ultra low finance offers expire at the end of May and some are extended all the way until the July 2015. Keep in mind that used car prices, interest rates, and loan terms vary depending on things like the vehicle’s condition, mileage, and supply and demand.

Keep in mind when buying a used car you must do two things, the first thing is to check the used car’s title history using a service such as AutoCheck to make sure the vehicle has not been in a severe accident or has a branded title. If the title shows to be clean, the second thing is always have the vehicle inspected by an independent certified mechanic before signing on the dotted line. This will greatly reduce the chances of you buying someone else’s problems.

If you’re considering the purchase of a pre-owned vehicle for your teen driver, I recommend using a free online referral services such as Ryde Shopper and Motor Trend. These services will tell you what others are paying for the vehicle you’re considering in your local area and which dealers give the greatest discounts.
