How Important is Credit When Financing a Used Car?

Are you ready for a new vehicle? Nervous about applying for a car loan with bad credit? Don’t worry, we’ve got options for you at B and B Automotive. 

How Does My Credit Score Affect a Loan?  

There are two main ways that your credit affects getting a loan. First, lenders look at your credit score to determine how “safe” it is to loan money to you. A higher credit score shows that you borrow – and pay back – money responsibly. Lenders are typically more likely to lend money to someone with a higher score.  

Second, your credit score directly affects your interest rate. A higher score typically helps you secure a lower interest rate, which can result in serious savings over the life of your loan.

We work with all kinds of car shoppers at B and B Automotive, including those with bad credit scores. We offer bad credit loans with Fast Track Financing. In fact, you have a 99.9% chance of being approved for financing at our dealership.

What if I Don’t Like My Terms?  

As we mentioned, a low credit score will typically give you a higher interest rate. There are still a few options for you if you’re looking to save on your new auto loan, like: 

  • Adding a co-signer with a better credit score 
  • Making a larger down payment 
  • Considering a more affordable vehicle
