Financing with Bad or Even No Credit

When you’re financing a car with no credit, you’ll have to keep in mind that the down payment may be more than the average and the interest rates may be higher. Be sure to figure out a budget and leave some wiggle room. A few things to keep in mind when financing a car with no credit include:

  • Ask questions and don’t assume you won’t be approved. The first offer you receive might seem like your only option, but it isn’t. Ask questions and see if there are other options that would better benefit you. If not, compare this offer to those from the bank or a credit union.
  • Know your budget and your credit score (if you have one). Applying for financing can hit your credit score hard. This is why it’s recommended you keep all applications within a 14-day period to limit the potential damage.
  • Separate price negotiation from financing. The first offer isn’t the only one. Many dealerships go through multiple lenders.
  • Be prepared for a higher cost. You may receive higher interest rates, a larger down payment, or both if you have no credit.
  • Leasing might be a better option. See what the dealership offers in terms of a lease. Though these payments might also be higher than the average lease, it’ll be cheaper than if you were attempting to purchase a vehicle.

Ways To Fix Your Credit Score

Your credit score can take a real hit when you submit multiple applications over a period of time. In order to minimize the damage, as mentioned above, submit each application within a 14-day period. In the meantime, or even before you start applying, try to boost your credit score. You can revive your credit score by using a credit card on small things and immediately paying them off. You’ll have a good credit score in no time at all.
