Perhaps Westlake Financial? Definitely research them on this site as not everyone has good things to say about them, but sounds like you're not in a position to be too choosy and if they approve you, it could help boost your score. I have my car loan with them and haven't had any problems, but the interest rate is high. I plan to pay the balance off after a year of payments, which comes in Feb. Getting the loan with them did boost my score quite a bit. Good luck!

It's not worth it. Keep taking the train for now. Start working on your credit. You've made it 3 months taking the train. It may not be ideal, but neither is the interest rate you're going to get. What I think would be wise is bring your expectations way down. Look for a cheap but reliable used car for around 3-5k. Save some money up and buy it cash.

+1 I agree totally. Why are your scores so low? Trying to finance  15K you are going to be paying loanshark interest and that's if you could find a lenderSmiley Sad

Re: Bad Credit (480 or under) need an auto loan

I feel for you as I was in your shoes. In 2013 I got a new car with $2000 down and $800 trade. The company that approved me was called Exeter Finance. I traded out of that 3 years later, leased, and will be a tier 1 lease in March when I turn this vehicle in. Don't be discouraged but work on improving, too. Good luck!
