    It looks like they are marking up the money factor for extra profit. The base MF is .00093 on this model. That adds about $13/mo. to your deal. I would think you could do a little better.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    Thank you. So is the money factor based on credit score?
    What you would go back with as a way to get them down?

    The money factor is higher for lower credit tiers, but that isn't necessarily why their quote is higher. If you have good credit, they could be marking it up for extra profit.

    I'd just go back and ask why you aren't getting the base rate of .00093.
