Getting a loan with zero down can be a challenge. Here are some things to know. When assessing whether a person with bad or no credit can get approved for a vehicle loan the lenders will typically look at a few things:
Affordability – how the payment would fit into your monthly budget once you’ve paid your other bills
Credit History – Lenders want to know how you’ve paid back people in the past. This will help them determine the risk of you paying off your new loan obligation
Vehicle Choice – Lenders want to make sure you’re getting a good deal. They don’t want to lend $10,000 on a $500 car so this can be important factor when getting approved.
Down Payment – Lenders want to make sure that if you stop making payments that the money you owe is similar or less than the value of the car if it gets turned back. Having a down payment helps this.
