How Guaranteed Car Finance Plans Work

Guaranteed car financing is an in-house financing option at many dealerships. It allows Mehlville drivers of different incomes to gain financing where they might otherwise be denied. Instead of checking your credit history, guaranteed car financing dealers will use your yearly income to determine which vehicles you qualify for. Most dealerships have a minimum income requirement, but some are willing to work with you no matter your income.

What You Need to Qualify

If you have a low credit score, but still want to buy vs. leasing, guaranteed car financing is a good option to consider. One of our finance officers will pre-approve you for a vehicle based on your income so that you can drive off the lot the same day! Although you’ll still need to meet the necessary income requirements, it’s much easier to gain guaranteed financing than other routes, as they don’t use your credit history to determine eligibility. Below is what you’ll need to start the guaranteed financing process:

  • Generally, in-house dealers will check whether you meet the minimum income requirement of $1,500 to $2,000 a month pre taxes (this depends on the dealership, though)
  • Recent pay stub
  • Down payment (usually around $1,000 or 10% of the car’s selling price)
  • Proof of residency (a utility bill should suffice)
  • You may also be asked for a list of personal references

Does In-House Financing Help Build Credit?

Yes, it can! Many guaranteed car finance dealers report payments to major credit bureaus. This means that if you make your monthly payments on time, your credit score will improve. With guaranteed car finance dealers, you get the car you need and have the potential to build up your credit at the same time. If you want to build your credit score with guaranteed car financing, ask whether the dealership reports to major credit bureaus.
