Selecting a vehicle to purchase takes time and research. And when you have finally found the one that meets all of your needs, it can be very disappointing if you find out that your credit rating keeps you from getting what you want.

When you are dealing with damaged credit, it is in your best interest to find a dealer who can handle your unique credit situation first, and find out what you can afford for your monthly payment. Once you know which vehicles you qualify for, you will have a clearer idea of what you can choose from.

Of course, this means two things: First of all, the dealer who can help you may not have the exact vehicle you originally wanted. And secondly, having to wait until you're at the dealer can make you feel pressured to make a choice you are unsure of. So, how can you do your research and still get the car you need in a timely manner?

Researching a New Choice

While time may be limited, you can still get the information you need in order to make a decision on the car you want while at the dealer. And many of the methods are similar to ones you can do at home.

  • The Internet is full of resources
    If possible, use your mobile device to begin your research while at the dealership. If you're worried about using too much data, ask the dealer if they have a Wi-Fi network you can connect to.

  • Ask the dealer for a vehicle history report
    If the dealer can't provide you with a vehicle history report, that is a sure sign that you are not working with the right people. This report will provide information on the condition of the vehicle, if it was involved in any reported accidents, title information, if it has a lemon history, and more.
  • Get it inspected by a certified mechanic
    While the Carfax/VHR is a great tool, the best way to ensure your next car is in the best condition possible is to have it checked out by an ASE Certified Master Mechanic.
