There are a lot of misconceptions out there that if you have bad credit or no credit that you can’t get an auto loan. What we’re here to tell you is this is not true.

The biggest difference between getting a car loan with bad vs. good credit is your lending source. If you have perfect credit you can typically walk into your bank and they will give you a loan which you are free to do what you want with. Unfortunately for those of us that have bad credit and need an auto loan, a normal bank will probably not approve you.
The good news is there are also lenders that specialize in people with poor credit. These lenders have programs set up to help you get a vehicle loan. When you Apply there will sometimes be restrictions on auto loans such as how much you can spend or how old the vehicle can be. The lenders typically want to make sure the customer who has had bad credit is getting a loan on a vehicle they can afford and aren’t overpaying.
You can definitely try going into your bank to get an auto loan, or even walk into a dealership to see what they can offer.
