Re: bad credit auto loan help needed please!!!

Your score is low,  but they will most likely pull an auto-enhanced score, so it might be a little higher with those othe auto loans.  However it will not be with a top tier lender or a low rate.  Do you belong to a CU or have a good financial relationship with a local bank?  They might be a better route.

Re: bad credit auto loan help needed please!!!

Even though you have some good auto history there must be some large negatives that are holding your score below 600. In addition with the debt obligations you listed there could be a problem with debt to income ratios unless your income is very substantial.

 

I believe that you can probably secure an auto loan if you really need to but trying on your own with blind applications is not the way to go. I would look around major auto dealerships for the car you want and then find out if they have financing for troubled credit. Depending on what your trade in is worth you will probably have to bring substantial cash to the table to get to a down payment in the 25 -30% range. And the APR is likely to be mid to high teens again. With that in mind you may want to reconsider another vehicle purchase until you straighten out your credit.

 

The Rebuilding forum on this site has a massive amount of information and help from people who have made solid gains in their credit scores in relatively short time periods. Best of luck to you in whichever direction you take.

Best financial advice I ever got: "Just imagine what an adult would do and do that."

Starting Score: 500's
Current Score: EQ 701 (FICO) TU 721 (FICO) EX 715 (Quizzle)
Goal Score: 760 ALL
