Here at Acura of Peabody, we try to make the car buying process as easy and as stress-free as possible. We’re ready to answer all of your questions and our Acura dealers have the experience needed to keep things running smoothly. One factor that can confuse a first-time buyer is the financing process. If terms like APR are unfamiliar to you, we can help.

There are a few things that determine how much you pay for your car each month. First, you need to make a down payment on your car. If you have a trade-in vehicle, its value can contribute a significant amount to this initial payment. Making a larger down payment means that you need to finance less of the total car cost, which can be a good idea for drivers with lower credit scores.

That’s because your credit score determines your interest rate, or APR. Whether you’re buying a new 2017 Acura MDX or one of our dependable pre-owned models, drivers with a better credit score can qualify for a lower financing rate. Another factor that can determine how much you pay over time is the length of your loan term. A longer loan term can mean lower monthly payments, but you might end up paying more in the long haul.
