San Juan Capistrano Car Lots That Approve Bad Credit

Have you given thought to where to buy your next car or truck? If you’ve got weak credit, you typically need to get your car from a dealer, as opposed to a private seller, simply because lenders hardly ever provide these types of loans for people with credit problems. Thank heavens there are dealerships that cater to adverse credit. Whenever you have below-average credit, expect:

  • Interest rates that are more expensive.
  • Down payments that are bigger.
  • Payment terms that are shorter.

With that being said, the rates and terms are much better than you would get at a used lot that does in-house financing with no credit checks. We work with many such dealerships, and they want to get you in the driver’s seat of the car you deserve. Go here to submit your application.

New or Used: What’s the Way to Go?

Many shoppers can qualify to finance either a new or used car. Oftentimes, a pre-owned vehicle is a better deal. The interest rates on new cars are more affordable, yes, but used cars are substantially cheaper.
