As more and more people are experiencing credit problems and looking to get into a new or used vehicle, special finance companies are becoming more popular. Car loans for people with bad credit are usually very difficult to obtain from a traditional lender such as a bank or credit union. Unlike tote the note dealers, these types of lenders make your credit score the most important factor in deciding whether or not to grant an auto loan approval because it determines your likelihood of default.
Most special finance companies, or sub-prime dealerships, don't care about your credit score. In fact, certain dealers won't even run a credit check when you apply with them. These places are referred to as:
Many car lots work in a similar way. They believe that "your job is your credit," meaning as long as you can prove that you have a steady income and residence, you will be approved for an auto loan.
There are also new and used car dealerships that don't offer in-house financing, but will still accept low credit scores. These dealerships use third party lenders that know the ins and outs of subprime auto financing and, they likely can get you approved. Typically, these loans have slightly higher interest rates and shorter loan terms due to the risk the lender is taking on you.
If you have been struggling to find a subprime automotive lender that will work with you and approve you for a car loan with bad credit, your struggle is finally at an end. When you work with Auto Credit Express, our network of dealerships will work to approve you for the car credit you need.
Auto financing is one of the best ways to rebuild your credit history to a prime level if you make your monthly payments on time. Although your loan may come with a higher interest rate, you will be improving your credit each month, since your timely payments will be reported to the three major credit bureaus by most lenders:
With consistent, on-time payments being recorded to your credit report each month, your credit score will have improved drastically by the time you have the loan paid off. This will help you get a lower interest rate and monthly payment on your next vehicle purchase from a conventional lender.
Another big benefit to these auto loans is if you make your payments on time each month, then you may even be able to refinance somewhere down the line. Depending on how much your credit score has improved, you could be eligible for a lower interest rate, which will lower your monthly payments and save you money on interest charges. So, not only do special finance companies give you an opportunity for auto loan approval, they can help you save money over time.
