Auto Loan $28000 Short Credit History (1 yr 7 mn) Decent Credit Score (680)

Hi, 

 

I have a credit History of 1 year 7 months. The credit limit on my ONLY credit card (through my credit union) is $750. 

I have a gross income of $90000 per year. 

I have a new NY license also. I got it last month. 

 

I want to get an auto loan for about $25000 to $30000. I went to a Chevy dealership and the Finance guy said I have been rejected in few (5) places because of my credit limit and credit history. He says he should be able to find something. But, I want to know what my chances are.  Also, I am putting down 5k as my down payment. 

This will be my first auto loan. 

 

Can someone help.

IMO you are shooting way too high for a first car

It's seems so. What kind of APR am I looking at? myFICO says six to seven percent.

You need to build your credit first.

 

Apply for another credit card and use it wisely for 6 months.

 

Continue saving more for the down payment.

 

If you must buy a car that expensive now. You should talk with your bank. The one that see's the $90k salary.

Would not the dealership finance guy talk to banks for me? I have given him my pay slip also.

I can get a co signee with a similar credit history (2 years) but with higher credit limits.

Would that help?

IMO if you were to look at a $20k car and put $5k down you would have a much higher likelihood for approval.

So for a 30k car if I put in 2k to 3k more, would that help?

Also, how do I know which banks around here will consider or give weight to my salary?
