Top 3 Reasons Why People Choose a 36-Month Auto Loan:
- Lower monthly payments ≠ saving money.
Lower payments are nice, but the fact is that the longer your loan term is, the more money you lose to interest.
- Your car is not an investment – so don’t treat it like one.
Why continue to pay more in interest for something that depreciates the second you drive it off the lot?
- Being upside down is fun on a roller coaster – not so much fun on a loan.
Owing money can be a source of financial stress, especially when you owe more than what the car is actually worth. While it may take some extra work and careful budgeting, a 36-month term can help you breathe easier faster, avoiding the pitfalls of being upside down.

*APR = Annual Percentage Rate. 0.75% (0.89% APR) at 36 months for a $20,000 loan would result in a monthly payment of $568.
Cars aren't the only thing that come with options. An auto loan at FAIRWINDS has options too.
72 Month New Car Loan
$20,000 @ 2.40% (2.475% APR)
Monthly Payment: $300
Interest Paid: $1,495
Have a smaller monthly payment.
Longer term, you'll pay more in interest, have a longer negative equity position and financing a vehicle out of a typical 36 month factory warranty period.
Even though your monthly payment is lower, you'll need to put money aside for a new set of tires and other repairs. The typical car needs a new set of tires around 36 months and that's also the time most factory warranties expire. Do the math. You may find that a 36 month loan is the way to go!
When most people finance a vehicle for 72 months, they tend to purchase more car than they really need or can afford. If a 36 month loan is not the right option for you, we also have 48 month and 60 month loan terms available.
