Getting an Auto Loan with Low Credit Scores

Counting Quarters

A Down Payment

Saving up for a down payment is one of the most effective ways to help secure an auto loan while dealing with a low credit score. Not only does the down payment lower your total amount borrowed, it also shows that you are fully committed to purchasing a car, and are responsible enough to save towards the vehicle. Lenders are more likely to give you a great loan if you can demonstrate your reliability through a down payment. And don't worry too much about the size or percentage of the down payment, simply having something to bring to the table is a great start.

Signing for an auto loan

Show Current Bill Payments

If you can prove to the lenders that you have paid your bills on time for an extended period, it could greatly increase your chances of securing an affordable auto loan. Something as simple as a few months' worth of electrical bills shows that you are responsible and capable of handling an auto loan. It isn't just electrical bills either. Proving you have paid your phone or cable bills can also help. Anything you can do to demonstrate your credit worthiness will increase your chances. Think about your monthly expenditures. Is there anything in there that you can use to prove your responsibility? It might make the difference for your auto loan.
