@LadyBlackheart:  Eep! Do you qualify for a low interest line of credit (or ANY line of credit, which would be less than 15%)? I am glad you have a car, but I am sad you have to pay so much interest.

@LadyBlackheart:  I would go to your bank and ask! You have a history there and I wouldn’t be surprised if they were willing to give you a secured loan or line of credit (as in they take your car if you don’t pay). I hate to see anyone throw so much money away on interest. I’ve never seen a line of credit with an interest rate higher than 9% and that’s high.

@LadyBlackheart:  Congrats on getting a car!

I had a co worker whose car broke down, she NEEDED a car same-day, and wound up with an 18.75% interest rate. It happens!

@LadyBlackheart:  That is a ridiculously high interest rate.  You can find CCs (and not the special promo rates) that are lower!

Is the loan secured against the car?  If so, that’s even more ridiculous.

Yay for having your own car!


I will be in the market for one soon.  Hopefully you can find a lower interest rate in the future!
