Only choose a variable rate if you don't have any other options or you plan on paying it off in the short term. Interest rates range from 1.99 to 30%, but interest rate is not everything. Generally if you are getting an interest rate that seems too low to be true has a catch. READ THE SMALL PRINT and ask questions if the terms seem too good to be true.
Getting a low monthly payment is important, but not as important as the rate and not having a prepayment penalty. Don't get sold on a low introductory rate only to later find out that you have a prepay and a variable interest rate tied to a volatile index.
Loan Term Length
The longer your loan term the lower the payments and the higher the interest. Find a term that you can afford, but don't take a 60 month term if you can afford to pay a higher payment at a lower rate. Loan terms exist in 3,6,9,10,12,24,36,48, and 60 months. Choose the lowest term you can afford.
MOST IMPORTANTLY DONT GET A PREPAYMENT PENALTY! Ask you financing company if the loan you are receiving has a prepayment penalty. Read your documentation and look for anything that might look like a prepayment penalty. This can cost you allot of money if you wish to pay your loan off early
