Low Rate Car Finance Deals
If you’re after car finance deals with the lowest rate possible then you’re in the right place. Car finance with low interest rates means that overall you’ll only pay off the value of the car, with as little interest as possible. This means you’ll not be out of pocket for more than you need to be.
All of our car finance deals are available on all of our stock, but some cars and manufacturers may be better for people with different financial situations. Popular manufacturers to buy on finance with Choose My Car include:
Used Ford Fiesta Deals
Used Fiat 500 Deals
Used Citroen C1 Deals

The length of a car finance agreement will vary for a number of reasons. The overall length of a term is usually measured in 12 month increments.
These terms usually start with a minimum of 24 months (2 years) upt to a maximum of 96 months (8 years). Generally terms for used cars are shorter than those for long cars.
While the monthly repayments will likely be lower on a longer term plan, it’s worth working out how much interest you’ll pay if you opt for something over a longer period of time.
The overall cost of car finance will vary depending on the type of car finance that you choose.
The cost of getting a car on finance will be the overall cost of the car, plus any interest owed over the term agreed.
For a personal contract hire agreement it’s worked out slightly differently; the amount you pay is calculated by the cost of the depreciation of the car over the term agreed.
Some types of car finance may also include fees for excessive mileage, any damage to the car or a maintenance cost, so keep an eye out for this.

If you make all of your payments on time on your car finance loan, then it should have a positive effect on your credit rating. This will prove to lenders that you are reliable and will reflect well on you.
However, if you miss or fall behind on repayments it will have a negative effect on your credit rating and remain in your credit history for 6 years.
