Car Loans After Bankruptcy - 3 Tips On Financing Your Car With Bad Credit
Written by: Carrie Reeder
If you have recently filed bankruptcy, you may wonder if its
possible to get auto financing again. There are more and more
loan companies all the time that have new programs to help
finance people with bad credit. An auto loan is easier to get
financing for than a personal loan or an unsecured loan because
the lender can use the car as collateral against the loan, in
case the borrower ever defaults or doesn't make the loan
Here are some tips to help you when getting financing to
purchase or refinance a vehicle after a recent bankruptcy.
1. Get Financed To Re-establish Your Credit - Getting a new car
loan can help you re-establish your credit when you make your
payments on time. Once you have made payments on time for about
6 months or longer, you should be able to refinance your car at
a much lower rate. As you make your payments on time, your
credit score will increase.
2. Buy The Lowest Priced Car You Can - When financing a car
after a recent bankruptcy, you can expect to see interest rates
as high as 14-19% or more. It is not wise to buy a car that is
more expensive than you need because, initially, you will be
paying such a high interest rate on the amount you are borrowing
on. If you do want a more expensive car, wait until you have
made payments on time for a year or two, after your credit
rating has increased. Then, you should be able to get an
interest rate of around 9-10% or less.
3. Get Multiple Offers - There are many lenders online that will
offer you up to 4 offers from one application. Most of these
loan companies will not even pull your credit with the initial
application, they will just ask you to describe your credit.
This way, your credit score will not drop from being pulled too
