Buy Here Pay Here Poor Credit Auto Loansby Steve Cypher on Sunday, November 11th, 2012
There are a number of advantages to getting a buy now pay later car loan from a buy here pay here car lot and while these dealers have helped many people finance a car this may not be the best choice for most buyers with credit issues
We know credit problems
Here at Auto Credit Express we’ve spent the last two decades helping car buyers with credit problems find dealers for their best opportunities at approved auto loans.
At the same time we also believe it’s important that these applicants understand the different kinds of higher risk auto lenders.
Buy here pay here dealers
For those people who are unfamiliar with what “buy here pay here” means, it refers to a car dealer where you can not only buy a car, but a dealership where you can finance it, right there, as well. You arrange financing with money that you actually borrow from the dealer instead of a bank, credit union or finance company.
Many customers in the market for a used car – especially if they have bad credit – start the buying process by visiting one of these dealers, thinking that they have no choice other than one of these buy now pay later car loans.
These customers think that because of their poor FICO scores, no regular car dealer will be able to get them approved for a loan. In many cases, this may be true.
Low income, short job time, no credit history
For those customers that have a low income, say $1000 per month, a short time on the job – maybe 3 weeks – and no credit history, the chances of getting financed at a regular dealer – even one that offers auto loans from subprime auto lenders – are slim. For these customers, a tote the note car lot may be the only way that they can finance a car.
But many car buyers who believe that a “buy here pay here” arrangement is their only option may be pleasantly surprised at the number of alternate opportunities for financing that they really have.
Buy and pay here pros and cons
The biggest attraction of buy here pay here lots is the fact that they don’t require credit checks. But this also means that, in most cases, repaying this type of loan will not help anyone’s credit – since a majority of these lots don’t report loans or good payment records to the credit bureaus.
In most cases these buyers, unfortunately, will find themselves in the same car credit situation the next time they need a vehicle loan.
