What Steps Should I Take to Get a Car Loan with Bad Credit?

Here’s some of our tips on what you should do regarding buying a car with bad credit:

  • Determine what you can afford to pay. This isn’t just your monthly payment! It’s also gas, car insurance, maintenance, registration, the whole package.
  • Make a larger down payment if you can. If you don’t have the best credit, a larger down payment will help lenders see you in a more favorable light as a borrower. In addition, a larger down payment means you’ll have a smaller loan balance to pay off. You can also value your trade with us to apply the cash you get toward your next car.
  • Clean up your credit as best you can. If you see errors on your credit report, dispute them right away because they might be dragging your credit score down. If you’ve got outstanding debts, pay them down whenever you can.
  • Shop around with lenders. While we’re a convenient place to get your Glastonbury car financed, it wouldn’t hurt for you to check with the bank or credit union to compare rates and terms.
