Top Tips for How to Get a Car Loan with Bad Credit

As you begin the process of getting a car loan with bad credit, here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:

  • Create a realistic budget. Think beyond the amount you can afford to borrow. You will also need to consider additional expenses like auto insurance, annual registration costs, maintenance costs, and gas costs, all of which should be included in your budget.
  • Can you make a larger down payment? If you’re able to save up for a larger down payment, you’ll have a smaller loan balance to pay off and you’ll pay less interest once your loan is paid off.
  • Check your credit report. It’s helpful to know your exact credit score before you apply for financing, but you should also be looking for any errors on your credit report. If you find any, don’t hesitate to dispute them with the credit reporting company as they could be causing your credit score to fall.
  • Pay down debts. It’s okay if you can’t make a large dent in existing debts – even making a small amount of progress in paying it off will help raise your credit a bit.
  • Don’t buy more car than you need. It’s best to remain budget-oriented and only get as much vehicle as you really need. Buying pre-owned will also help keep your monthly payment affordable.

Can a Bad Credit Car Loan Improve Your Credit?

Learning how to get a car with bad credit can feel stressful and, sometimes, a little disheartening. Remember, financial setbacks happen to everyone at some point. Something positive to keep in mind is that you can leverage your new auto loan to help get your credit back up. So long as you make on-time monthly payments, you will slowly start to see improvements!
