TODAY’S TIP: Don’t take the first financing option you’re offered. You can negotiate loan rates just as you would haggle over the price of a truck. Finance managers have a good deal of leeway when setting the rate for your transaction. Your rate will be determined largely by your credit history, job history and residency history.
