Just wanted to report if it had not been reported already that Ford Motor Credit is BK friendly. I was discharged in June but I was able to qualify for 3.9% financing! You can see my scores from below but they reported my EX at 692!!! I will take it.


Starting Score: TU 477 EQ 533 BK 1/27/2012
Current Score: EX 702 TU 681 EQ 652 1/10/2014

Re: Ford Motor Credit

No secured cards. Not that they are not good, I just never looked into them. Credit report was wiped clean with $0 Balances. I had to dispute a few accounts to be IIB. Plus the judgement that lead me to BK was still reporting . I disputed it and it was removed off of my report but not my DW. I have applied and received Cap1 Platinum and Credit 1. My wife has applied and received Cap 1 Platinum and Rewards, Credit 1, First Premier, and Valero Gas Card. We also reaffirmed our mortgage and auto loan.

Re: Ford Motor Credit

I can say from experience they are BK friendly as well. 2 Years post BK 7 I got a truck at 6.9% and then 6 months later got a flex at 1.9%. It helped that I had bought many vehicles from them and never defaulted on those.

Re: Ford Motor Credit

You guys are providing false information. They may have been BK friently to YOU. That does not mean they are to anyone else. You may have had a good down payment or decent amount of income to assist you in obtaining the loan. I was denied credit 6 months out of my BK. For everyone else considering Ford, Id say stay away...

My list of non BK friendly auto loan lenders: Ford,Toyota,Nissan,Kia,Chase,Santander/roadloans,Americredit,Wells Fargo,BofA,Orange co Credit union,TD auto

Re: Ford Motor Credit

Vegas how far past BK are you? Have you established credit at all since BK like a Credit Card or anything? You are correct that income can play as a factor as well as down payment. When I bought my Fords I had income but I only put $500 down in both instances.

Re: Ford Motor Credit

Everyones situation is different after BK and just because someone gets approved after a BK doesnt mean everyone will. Cap 1 is a bank we all consider BK friendly but not everyone will get approved for an unsecured card right out of BK.. Vegas, I think it is wrong to say he is providing "wrong information" Indecision was approved one month out of BK, I would say that is pretty friendly, wouldn't you? Like mentioned it has a lot to do with what you do with your credit after the BK and income definitely plays a part. Congrats again and thank you for the info
