How to Get a Car with Bad Credit

If you decide to move forward with financing, make sure to get things in order beforehand so that you aren’t making a rash decision. Boost your financial savviness with the following tips.

  1. Break down your budget, determining how much you can pay each month on a car loan.
  2. Prepare a bigger down payment, if at all possible. If you currently have a car, consider trading it in to contribute to the down payment.
  3. Check your credit report before applying for a loan, cleaning it up as you can.
  4. Be realistic about the car you can afford to buy. The extra technology and luxuries are always nice, but don’t overextend yourself. You may even find excellent options within our used car inventory, including some models priced under $10,000!
  5. Ask questions if you’re confused!

Improve Your Credit Score with a Car Loan

One way to surely improve your credit score? Take out a car loan, and consistently make payments on time each month. Doing so will provide a boost to your credit profile, which in turn will ensure you have more lending power in the future. That means lower interest rates on loans and credit cards for future East Peoria purchases!
