Question BMW Financing Questio Help!

hey guys, if anyone knows about financing please i need your help. My sister is trying to get a car, a 3-series sedan and the vehicle costs about 23,000. The guy at the used car dealership said that with a co-signer, who she has, my dad. My dad has about 780+ credit score and he wants to put $5,000 down. The guy said with a 72 month payment plan it will be 12% interest rate. Doesnt that sound alittle too high? even with my dad co-signing for her. btw we live in CA if that helps with the current rates.

the problem with cosigners is that even though they may have great credit, the primary borrowers credit still affects the decision. (kinda like if you average out an A+ and an F, you get a C.)

i would just buy it in your dads name if i were her.

and when your buying used, the interest rates are higher. So yea, the 12% does sound about right.

I take it this car isn't a 2004 CPO? BMW's giving 2.9% APR on those right now, you know.
