Waiting for US Bank Auto Approval

[ Edited ]

I just had bankruptcy last year and discharge last year. I called Nissan to purchase a Nissan quest but finance rate is a whooping 19%.

Now waiting for US BAnk if they can pre apprvoe me but this time its for a Kia Sedona. The car that I really really want.

 

My credit is not that established yet and I'm frustrated because everybank will tell you that I'm considered a first time buyer. Although I had few car loans

on my account. two paid for and 1 repossess. I added it on my bankruptcy.

 

If this loan fell through, is there any other banks that is bankruptcy friendly and will accept my loan request. I need at least 20K approval limit.


Starting Score: 542 TU after bankruptcy November 9, 2011 (Discharge Date)
Current Score: 598 TU Rebuilding. In my wallet CAP1 @ $300 now $500 after 6 months, Orchard @ $300, WheelWorks/CFNA - $1200, GE/OldNayve&Walmart $300 Auto loan - $25K @ $490/month, FingerHut $150 BADDIES - HIGH UTI but no late fees, school loak $20K, 27 hard inquiry
Goal Score: 700

Re: Waiting for US Bank Auto Approval

of course USBANK denied me. They required a 680 credit score to be approved at least.
I'm frustrated.. Maybe i may just need to wait on hold on getting a new car for my family.

 

They are saying I only have 550 credit score and used Equifax.

Personally I would say 19% isnt awful since the BK is so new. My first car loan fresh out of BK was 23% and I refinanced at 6 months to 12.9%. Then 6 months later I traded it in and got 6.9%. I would say most places you go will give you that high rate but you can refi later with good on time payments.

Re: Waiting for US Bank Auto Approval

yes. Capital One approved me @ 19%. Maybe I will wait for more time. I already told my husband I don't want to pay for a new car since we are not ready for that yet.

I think we will just fix our van.. Thanks..

Re: Waiting for US Bank Auto Approval

Hi, I am new here and can use some help..

 

I recently applied for a Buick lease through US Bank with a Business App (which I'm the owner of) and myself as a Co-signer 

My business is more than 3 years old with quite a yearly revenue. My personal fico scores and reports are perfect (Fico TransUnion 747 and Fico Equifax 762). They declined me and I still didn't get their letter.

 

Ally Bank is accepting me on personal or business right away..   

 

Is there a way to have US Bank reconsider their decline (sort of a credit card reconsideration), or is an Auto Loan (Lease) decline more of a dead-end?

 

Any advice would be much appreciated 

 

P.S. Reason I would like go with US bank (as oppose to ally bank) is the difference of approx $30 per month for a 36 month lease.
