Bad Credit Dealerships


The advantages of purchasing a brand new vehicle are plenty. New vehicles have no scratches or dents, drive off the lot with low mileage, and offer the peace of mind that comes factory with a warranty. 

A common misconception among car buyers is buying a new car with bad credit is impossible. When people have bad credit, dealerships sometimes don’t understand the extra requirements needed to qualify customers to purchase. Even so, thousands of people with credit challenges are able to drive away in a new car. Bad credit doesn’t exclude you from purchasing a brand new vehicle. Bad credit car loans help people get into the cars they want everyday.

Not only can CreditYES® get you into a brand new vehicle that you want and deserve, we can save you massive amounts of time and make the car buying experience much more pleasant. By pre-qualifying now, we’ll verify your income and credit information and send it directly to the dealer. We’ll even set an appointment for you and a sales advisor, so all you have to do is show up, test drive, choose, and drive away.

For customers with bad credit, dealerships use the term “special finance” when it comes to auto finance. In financial circles, these customers are considered subprime, meaning they don’t qualify for “prime rate” loans. Consumers who have collection activity reported on their credit report, filed for bankruptcy, had repossessions, or a limited credit history fall into this category.

The percentage of people who fall into the special finance category in the United States is around 35 percent, so there are many auto loan companies that have products tailored to special finance (or subprime) consumers.

While subprime auto finance customers typically have higher annual percentage rates and may require a down payment, this isn’t always the case. As more people find themselves in life situations that result in poor credit, lenders and dealerships have developed systems that will allow you to purchase a new car with bad credit and not be chained down by cumbersome repayment terms.

Finding a bad credit car dealership and making a purchase can actually help rebuild your credit overall. By making on-time monthly payments on your vehicle, your credit score will increase over time. Purchasing a brand new vehicle will allow you the peace of mind of reliable transportation and will give you a positive repayment history over time.
