Zero Percent Auto Loan Rate New Car Incentives in April 2011

April new car shoppers will find an array of 0 percent auto loan rate deals across several different vehicles and automotive brands. The interest-free incentives are still available on some remaining 2010 vehicles, but more new 2011 vehicles are being offered with the auto loan rate incentive. Keep in mind that to receive most of these 0 percent auto loan incentives, you have to have a good credit score.

Shoppers who don’t qualify for the 0 percent auto loan incentives can still save money on their auto loan by shopping around at their local credit union or bank to get pre-approved financing before going to the dealer. Then see if the dealership can beat what you’ve been pre-approved for. This will help you get the best auto loan rate possible on your next new car purchase.

Here are the automakers who are offering 0 percent auto loan financing during April 2011:

Buick is offering 0 percent financing on its 2010 Lucerne and 2010 and 2011 Enclave for up to 60 months in April. The 2010 Buick Enclave also has $1,000 in bonus cash on top of the 0 percent auto loan rate.
