Basics of Financing a Car with No Credit

One driver in Apex may have a different scenario than another in Cary, so keep in mind that all financial situations are different. You might finance with a bank, you might finance with a dealership. However, financing a car with bad credit or no credit presents specific challenges to keep in mind. Here are some tips to put your best foot forward:

  • Prepare for an Uphill Battle: Financing a car with bad credit or no credit is more difficult than financing with a perfect credit score, but it’s possible. Expect higher down payments and higher interest rates.
  • Check Your Credit Score: Do you know your current credit score? Knowing your credit score helps you crunch numbers, and it also shows your lender that you’re a responsible candidate who has done the research.
  • Complete Applications Quickly: If you are applying to multiple lenders, send all of your applications within a 14-day period. Otherwise, you might look like a credit risk.
  • Prepare to Negotiate: You’ve done the research, now negotiate with confidence. A successful finance deal benefits both parties, so make your case and negotiate to get the best possible deal.
  • Lease or Loan: While financing is a terrific option, you could also consider leasing a car if you have no credit or bad credit. Leasing is generally more affordable for you and less of a risk for the dealership, so it can be a great choice.
