How to Get a Car Loan with Bad Credit

Good credit bad credit - Richmond Chrysler


For many people, automobiles are an essential part of life. As such, most people also need a car loan because they do not have enough cash sitting around to pay for a car in full. However, people with bad credit often have a hard time getting car loans and may find it difficult to qualify for conventional financing from a bank of the dealership.


What is a Bad Credit Score?

Most people who have poor credit are already aware of what makes them a risky investment for banks--they have too much debt, they have too little credit history, they have made too many late payments, and more. However, it is quick and easy to determine a credit score through Equifax and Transunion--two of Canada's most known credit reporting agencies.

Prospective vehicle buyers with a credit score of around or above 650 will most likely qualify for a traditional car loan. However, a credit score below that threshold will most likely need a bad credit car loan.


Getting a Loan

Bad credit is not an uncommon problem, and bad credit car loans can be found in Vancouver and across Canada. Buyers with bad credit will not qualify for the best loan terms, such as the ones advertised for new cars with 0% financing. However, that does not mean they will not qualify for any car loan. Most bad credit car loans will have higher interest rates or slightly unfavourable loan terms.
