I just bought a new car today and signed the papers. I live

Resolved Question:

I just bought a new car today and signed the papers. I live in Texas. They said on a 72 month the interest rate is higher. I said my local bank has 3.29% financing. He said he works directly with them and they dont for cars over 60 mo. Now my interest rate is 5.5 and the bank does offer 3.29% for 72 mo. What do I do?

Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.

Please note that for legal reasons my answers are only intended to be general/educational information rather than specific legal advice. If you need specific legal advice, then you must consult with a local attorney in your jurisdiction.

The financing is totally separate from the sale of the car, so the dealer is not really a party anymore. In any event, you can do one of two things: (1) See if the lender will allow you to cancel the financing so that you can obtain the better rate from your bank. (2) If the lender will not allow you to cancel, then see if your bank will allow you to refinance at the lower rate. Many people don't realize that car loans can be refinanced, but they can (I've done it myself for a better rate).

Have I satisfactorily addressed your concerns? If not, then feel free to let me know, as I will be happy to clarify my answer or help with your follow-up questions.
