Advice for Getting an Auto Loan with Bad Credit


For anyone struggling with bad credit, getting an auto loan can be a hassle. We here at Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge want to do everything we can do to help you in the process of achieving the goal of getting an auto loan even though you have poor credit. Here’s a few pieces of advice that can benefit you.

First, and foremost, is to check that credit score. There are numerous resources available to people letting them know what their score is. This is a vital number. It is the difference between you walking away with a great deal on a loan and a car and not. Know that score before coming to the dealership.

Now that you know that score, now make sure it is accurate. It is a hassle, but one that I assure you pays off in ways you never knew of. Look at anything that is negatively impacting your score and if it doesn’t belong on the list, then get it removed. Piece of wrongful reporting that is being attributed to you negatively can drag down your score and in the process drag down what you can get in an auto loan.

When it comes to keeping the score down, look to your overdue bills. Now, paying them in full is good, but as long as you can demonstrate to the bureaus that you are paying off bills and debt in regular fashion, that can lead to a positive reflection on the score. They are not just looking for if you paid off debt, but if you are dependable in paying off debt. So while you may still have overdue debt, as long as you have a plan in action, which can still help.

There is plenty of more ways you can help yourself, but these are good ones for beginning. Keep checking back for more advice.
