Very fairly financed, I paid for it before we drove it off the lot, and the one before that, and the two before that.

Some auto dealers are offering 0% or near 0% financing.

Yes but at 2.9% so I can see the balance actually move downwards each month.

I had one case where they got me on the interest. I turned around, made one payment, and then refinanced with my friendly local credit union. Didn't make my payments go down, but I cut nearly a year off of the payment schedule. And then I started working a lot of overtime and I paid the vehicle off in fourteen months. And the vehicle was a Detroit piece of junk to boot! Traded it in four years later on a Nissan.

After that, I financed my vehicles through 401(k) loans where I paid the interest back to myself. They had the interest rate set at the prime rate, which is about what I was able to earn through the stable value fund.

After I retired, I bought my first vehicle with a Roth IRA tax-free withdrawal (can only do that once). That vehicle got totaled three and a half months later and I went out and bought its replacement with the check from my insurance company (they paid off under my collision coverage, then went and sued the other driver for what they paid out on my claim and my collision deductible). The accident happened in 2011, but I didn't get the collision deductible back until earlier this month. My saleslady said that it only cost me $600 to drive the vehicle for three and a half months, but now you can make that $100!

0.0% for 60 months from Toyota (one reason I'm driving a Camry, and not an Accord)

Yes, for the last 5 vehicles I wrote a check and so it was paid for before I drove it away.

NOTHING is ever financed fairly, unless it's 0% Interest.
