How To Get A Car With Bad Credit



This guide will equip you with the knowledge and steps you need to navigate buying a car with bad credit:



1. Credit & Loan Impact:



  • Understand credit scores and how loans affect them.

  • On-time payments improve your score, late payments hurt it.

  • A car loan can be a tool to rebuild your credit.



2. Building a Budget:



  • Decide how much you can afford to spend on a car.

  • Create a budget that factors in:


    • Vehicle cost

    • Registration fees

    • Maintenance

    • Fuel

    • Initial fees and taxes


  • This will help you narrow your search to used cars in your price range.



3. Finding Reputable Dealerships:



  • Look for dealerships with:


    • User-friendly websites

    • Diverse used car inventory

    • Vehicle history reports readily available

    • Positive customer reviews

    • Multiple contact methods (phone, email, online chat)




Terre Haute Auto Advantage:


We are a reputable bad credit dealership known for quality service. Our "buy here, pay here" program simplifies the car buying process by handling financing in-house.



4. Consider a Down Payment or Trade-In:


This reduces the loan amount, lowering interest rates and monthly payments.


We offer trade-in incentives that can sometimes be more beneficial than a down payment.



5. The Co-Signer Option:


A co-signer improves your loan eligibility and lowers interest rates by guaranteeing payments if you miss any. Choose a co-signer responsibly, such as a close friend or family member.
