Re: Do I have a chance?

with a 572 its kind of rough. 

what cu are you a part of? 

ask them if you put down 4-5k what rate they would offer you?

Re: Do I have a chance?

Thanks for the reply.

 

I'm with Coastal Federal Credit Union here in North Carolina. I also have a secured credit card with them that I've had for 5 months. Should I bring a copy of my credit report with me to a branch and have them look it over before I apply?

Have you tried to clean up your credit?  A few points in your score could help a lot.

Re: Do I have a chance?

I have, I paid off three collection accounts in June although they all turned down my GW letters. Are there any lenders that would approve me other than Santander? I wouldn't particulary mind a higher apr as I would eventually refinance.

Re: Do I have a chance?

I would try your CU first.  They seem to be more lenient.

Santander is a last resort, not a first try.

 

There was a time I had scores in the mid to high 500's and had a loan from Wells Fargo Dealer Services at 10% and Ally at 10%.  Only go to Santander if you absolutely have to.
