Grand Prairie Dealerships That Finance Bad Credit

When you have bad credit, many banks aren’t going to work with you. Thank goodness, there are dealerships and finance companies that finance people from the lower credit tiers. Since this is a high-risk loan, certain things are to be expected:

  • Interest rates that are steeper.
  • Down payments that are bigger.
  • Loan terms that are shorter.

Having said that, they will line up your financing through banks and finance companies that supply information to the credit bureaus, thereby allowing you to increase your credit score. At Motive Auto Finance, we work with many such dealerships, and when you apply online, we match you with one who wants to accept you for financing.
