Can You Finance a Car with No Credit?

Man with Car Keys

Financing a car with no credit isn’t always easy, but it is often possible. Whether you’re a first-time car buyer with no credit or a driver who’s exploring bad credit car finance options while rebuilding from a setback, there are several things you can do to improve your chances of getting approved for an auto loan in Norwalk or Weston. Our financing department has the answers.

Tips for Financing a Car with Bad Credit or No Credit

Bad credit car finance options can often be expensive, as most come with larger-than-average interest rates. It’s important to explore all of your options and learn about the differences between in-house financing and traditional lending. It’s equally important to save up, since a large down payment could be the difference between an unaffordable monthly payment and a completely attainable one.

No matter where you’re coming from, you’ll want to take the following steps as well:

  1. Don’t assume that you won’t qualify. Any driver who’s spent time trying to finance a car with bad credit knows how frustrating the process can be. If you’re taking the time to save up a large down payment, it pays to keep your head up.
  2. Take steps to improve your credit score. You might be surprised at what a big difference you can make by paying down outstanding balances, closing credit cards you don’t need, and making all of your payments on time. Bills can easily get overwhelming, but it is possible to take control.
  3. Don’t waste time on applications that won’t go through. Applying for a loan can cause your credit to take an initial hit. That’s doubly true if you’re applying for many loans to achieve one singular goal. It pays to shop around, but make all of your applications within a 14-day window.
  4. Some lenders in greater Westport may see you as someone who can be taken advantage of. Work with a team who wants to see you behind the wheel, and don’t accept any offer before you’ve done your research. 
  5. At the end of the day, you need to be prepared to pay more than other drivers. A driver who’s financing a car with no credit is simply a bigger risk than the driver with good credit, and you need to do everything in your power to prove that you’re a good investment.
