Columbus Bad Credit Car Dealers
Have you got a FICO score of 620 or less? Below-average credit is rarely a deal-breaker. We work with dealers and lenders that support each of the different credit tiers. These companies are willing to look at your present ability to pay, as opposed to fixating on your past issues with doing so. Generally a monthly income of $1500 is sufficient for approval, and a down payment of some kind (cash or trade) may be required. Since your interest rate will be quite high, given your credit, it is important to allocate no more than 10% of your monthly budget toward your monthly payment. This will ensure that you have sufficient room in your budget to make your payments each month. Of course, making the payments month in and month out on your bad credit auto loan is one of the best ways to improve your credit. Ready to get started? Let us find you a dealer in Columbus that finances bad credit – online!
Do I Need a Down Payment?
We do have lenders in our network who offer financing with no down payment, even for people with credit problems. Having said that, a down payment gives you significant advantages:
- Shortens loan, meaning less is paid in interest.
- Reduces payment per month.
- Safeguards against negative equity.
With that said, today’s lenders and dealers realize that down payments are harder to come by in this economy. We get people financed everyday, despite issues with their credit and down payment. Apply now!
Auto Loans for Military Personnel: Fort Benning
The military lifestyle can be tough on your credit. After all, there are changes of station, deployments, and other facts of life that make it easy to miss payments or get behind on bills – both of which can put a hurting on your credit score. Fortunately, we work with dealers and lenders who appreciate the unique challenges of serving in our nation’s armed forces. Inquire with your dealer about special discounts and/or rebates for military personnel stationed at Fort Benning. You might be able to save a few hundred dollars on your vehicle just by showing your military ID.
