Before applying for financing with bad or nonexistent credit, it’s important to realize that you may have to make a higher down payment and be ready for interest rates that are offered above average. It’s important that with bad credit financing, you budget high and keep in mind the following pieces of advice:

  • Know your budget and your credit score (if you have one). When applying for financing, your credit score can decline over time. Try your best to keep your loan applications within a 14-day period so you can limit a declining score, and know your budget.
  • Revive your credit score. If you have bad credit or no credit, do your best to boost your credit score on smaller bills before you attempt to finance a new vehicle.
  • Ask questions and don’t assume you won’t be approved. Be sure to shop around and find different financing options before you decide on one. You may get one offer at first, but it’s likely that there could be other better options as well. Ask questions and try your best to get other options.
  • Leasing might be a better option. Take a look at leasing options. While these payments may be higher at the beginning, they can become cheaper over the long run when you attempt to purchase a vehicle.
  • Be prepared for a higher cost. If you have bad credit or no credit at all, you should be prepared to take on larger down payment and higher interest rates—peek at what average interest rates look like.
