*This information is estimated based on consumers approved for an auto refinance loan through Caribou between 6/1/2022 and 3/1/2023, had an existing auto loan on their credit report, and accepted their final terms. These borrowers saved an average of $113.78 per month. Refinance savings may result from a lower interest rate, longer term, or both. There is no guarantee of savings. Your actual savings, if any, may vary based on interest rates, the repayment term, the amount financed, and other factors

 

**To check the refinance rates and terms you qualify for, we conduct a soft credit pull that will not affect your credit score. However, if you choose a loan product and continue your application, one of our lending partners or we will request your full credit report from one or more consumer reporting agencies, which is considered a hard credit pull and may affect your credit.

 

***Social Security number is required should you proceed with the loan application process.
