Financing with Bad Credit

If you have a less-than-perfect credit situation you can still find a fantastic vehicle, but there are a few things to keep in mind. You may have to make a higher down payment and you might deal with higher interest rates. Here are a few recommendations:

  • Keep your budget and credit score close: First, be sure to look up your credit score to get a better sense of your financial situation. This will help you set realistic expectations, as well as a budget. Try to get all your loan applications within a 14-day period to avoid hurting your credit score as well.
  • Boost your credit score: If you're starting from scratch, consider boosting your credit score by paying off smaller bills and loans. This shows a pattern of good financial habits that makes you more trustworthy to lenders.
  • Ask questions: There's no need to go for the first loan you see. Have patience and shop around to find the best rates possible. Ask questions until you feel completely comfortable with your decision.
  • Consider leasing: Leasing might seem like a higher-priced option initially, but it can also be cheaper over the long run - especially when you want to purchase the vehicle.
  • Budget appropriately: While it's important to budget well within your means, keep in mind that you will probably need to pay a larger down payment if you have lackluster credit.
