Choosing the right kind of car is probably the most important decision people with questionable credit can make once they’re received an auto loan approval.
Car buyers that have experienced problem credit will typically choose to finance a used car because typically they’re less expensive than a new vehicle.
Before applying for a car loan it can help some consumers if they first establish some type of credit history by applying for either a secured credit card or a traditional credit card.
Unfortunately, car buyers with problem credit are sometimes easy targets and can be taken in by sales pitches from questionable used car service contract marketers that have learned of a recent auto loan.
Used car buyers, in particular those with credit issues, have been shown to be easy targets for unscrupulous sellers hoping to unload used cars that are either rebuilt or have suffered some other type of damage.
If either you or your spouse has bad credit and that person plans on applying for a car loan, you both should be aware of how lenders must view your marital status.
