Car Loans: Putting You in the Driver's Seat

Everywhere you turn, someone is trying to give you a car loan.  No money down, no interest for six months, prequalify and they will even promise no impact on your credit score.  When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.  As of June 2017, US auto debt topped 1 trillion dollars nationwide, and the number of people making late payments is up too.  Now is the perfect time to update your knowledge on what lenders are offering and how to protect yourself from a bad deal.  Come to our Car Loans class, November 30th from 5:00pm-7:30pm and learn what you need to know to get you into the car you need!  This event is free but registration is required. Please call 617-889-1375 to register.  This event is a part of the Citizen’s Bank Financial Capacity Education series.
