Re: Do i qualify for a auto loan?

Is your BF a co-signer? If not, don’t include his income. I’d say yes, you can get a loan. However, you won’t likely get very good terms. Outside of military, can you obtain membership in any other CU? CUs in general have decent terms and give your membership consideration in the process.

Re: Do i qualify for a auto loan?

If I'm reading your post right your student loans lapsed out of forbearance? If that's the case they are reported delinquent? We also need to know how much your rent or mortgage is to get a better idea of how much your be approved for on a loan.

With scores and such a thin profile you will most likely need a cosigner and need to be in a new car. If you can get a cosigner it with good credit it will help with your rate. Even with a CU with scores like this it will still be a high rate. When I was rebuilding I was in the low 600s and got whacked with a 18.9% from my CU and I was happy coming from a 25.9% so I felt the pain.

I'm finally down to a 2.49% but it took me 5 years to rebuild my credit. Good luck.
