Apply for an Auto Refinance Loan with Nationwide
Refinance your auto loan with Nationwide Bank® and save. Refinancing a car may lower your interest rate, which means a lower monthly payment – and more money in your pocket each month. You’ll also pay less over the life of your auto loan1.
*Annual Percentage Rates (APRs) effective as of
and subject to change.
APRs shown assume excellent borrower credit and a 1% discount for automatic ACH payments. Rates will be 1% higher if automatic payments are not selected or cancelled after loan closing. Loan is subject to approval. Additional terms and conditions may apply. Payment example: A 72 month loan for $25,000 at 3.60% APR would have 72 monthly payments of $386.59.
There are two ways you can save when you refinance your auto loan to a lower interest rate. Choose the one that works better for your personal auto finance goals:
Refinance to a lower interest rate and keep the same terms (length of the auto loan). A better rate will lower your monthly payment and add some breathing room to your family budget.
Choose a shorter term when you refinance to a lower auto loan interest rate. For example, you can refinance a 5-year auto loan to a 3-year auto loan. This means you will pay off the loan faster and pay less interest on the total amount of your loan.
With Nationwide Bank, you can do everything securely online, from filling out the application to signing your loan documents, from the comfort of your home. And our application is easy to access whether you're using a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
We've also made it convenient for you to make loan payments. You can choose to pay monthly or bi-weekly, and you can select a payment date that works with your schedule. Nationwide Bank does not charge a fee for bi-weekly loan payments.
Then, your work is done. Nationwide Bank will make sure your original loan is paid off and your vehicle title is transferred to us.
