Credit Application for a Used Car

Look, we all get in financial pickles, and sometimes the predicament we’re in so great that it destroys our credit. Is the system fair? No, probably not. But it is what we have, and if you have bad credit and need to purchase things such as a used car, there are still things you can do to get what you need.

Here are three ways to purchase a used car with bad credit.

  • If you have time before you need a new car, start taking small steps towards improving your credit. For example, take out a credit card, use it to make purchases, then pay it off in full every single month. This will help improve your credit score and make it more likely you can get the lending you need.
  • Go to a “buy here pay here” used car dealership. Buy going to one, you need not worry about a having to get your bank or a third party involved; instead you can come up with a payment plan and purchase the car all in one place. It’s the definition of win-win.
  • Increase your down payment. In most situations, the more you put down, the more you offset the exorbitant interest fees you would have to pay, and the more buying opportunities you will have to find the vehicle you truly want for you and your family.
