Financing with Bad or Even No Credit

More often than not, the down payment and interest rates are higher when financing a car with no credit, so it’s a good idea to factor this into your budget. Review these tips before visiting the dealership:

  • Don’t go in assuming that you won’t be approved. There are various financing options available, so remember to ask questions to see if there’s a financing package that will better suit your budget.
  • Boost your credit score. There are some easy ways to quickly boost your credit rating. By using your credit card on small purchases and promptly pay them off, you can improve your score.
  • Know your budget and your credit score. Remember to factor in the cost of liability insurance, and other options. Often your credit score gets hit when you apply for financing. Make sure that your loan applications have a 14-day period to limit the potential damage on your score.
  • The first offer isn’t the only one. Since most dealerships work with multiple lenders, you should have a variety of different offers to choose from. Those seeking in-house financing might have fewer options, but you’re usually more likely to get approved.
  • Be prepared for a higher cost. Higher interest rates and a larger down payment are common when seeking financing when you have no credit. Learning how to trade in a car can help you offset these costs.
  • Consider leasing. Ask about the dealership lease offers. The payments may be higher than the average lease, but more affordable than buying a vehicle.

Although it’s never a good idea to accept a loan if you’re not sure how to pay it back, you should know that you may be able to lower your rates later on. Securing a loan and making regular, on-time payments should reflect well on your credit, and that may put you in a position to refinance your loan at some point down the line.
