For some drivers, the excitement of shopping for a vehicle can be overshadowed by the financial headaches it can bring. At Auto Depot Sudbury, we often hear drivers ask: “Can I qualify for a car loan with bad credit?” To help drivers with less than ideal credit understand their financing options, we’ve put together all the information vehicle shoppers need to know in the blog post below. 

Automotive Financing Options for Subprime Credit 

While some dealerships may turn down drivers due to their credit score, this doesn’t mean they all will. Some dealerships, such as our team here at Auto Depot Sudbury, are more willing to work with drivers with subprime credit scores. In fact, making consistent monthly payments towards a car loan can be a great way for drivers to improve their credit score.

Lenders Consider More Than Just Credit Score

While credit score plays an important role in determining a vehicle shopper’s finance options, it’s important for drivers to keep in mind that it isn’t the only factor at play. Lenders will also look at a driver’s income sources, prior auto loan history, credit utilization, and debt-to-income ratio to determine approval and terms for a loan. Even if a driver’s credit score isn’t great, these other factors can show lenders that they’re able to make their car payments, giving them more options when financing their vehicle.
