24% ?????

I am going to help this person out but I am scandalized by this.  I met someone who is a brand new (and very proud) American citizen.  She could not be prouder of her new country.

She also has a new job and she needed transportation to get to and from the job.  She bought a very, very, very modest car and the interest rate on the car loan is 24 % !  24%?  And the loan is for 6 years!  No one can afford a car loan that high.  I am going to help her out, but have you heard of car loans THAT high?
