How to Get a Car Loan with Bad Credit

  • Save for a down payment
  • Find a car you can reasonably afford
  • Get a co-signer

Review Your Credit Report

Every guide on how to get a car with bad credit should start with this step. You need to know what’s causing your low credit score in the first place. So, review your credit report for any issues. Resolve the issue, inform the credit reporting agency, and fix your credit!

Get Together the Funds for a Down Payment

This can be easier said than done for many households. But having a down payment will go a long way towards buying a car with a low credit score. Generally, the larger the down payment, the better.

Be Realistic About Your Budget

Your funds may not yet match your dreams when you imagine driving your next car. But that’s ok. There are plenty of reliable, quality pre-owned cars that are affordably priced. We know because we have several of them on our lot!

Ask a Friend or Family Member to Co-Sign

This is a viable option for drivers with bad credit. Car loans can be much easier to get when they are co-signed by someone with good credit. However, you should both know that if you can’t pay the loan, your co-signer will have to. Also, late payments will go on their credit report.
