When looking to obtain auto financing when you have bad credit, every possession can be a serious mark against you. It does not mean the you can get financing, it just means that there needs to be a few criteria relating to the repossessions in order to get the best financing opportunity. You have probably found out, if you’ve shopped locally at a dealer or two that most dealerships are going to tell you that there’s nothing that they can do for you. That’s very common, however there are really good sources that can give you a car loan even with a past repossession.
The first criteria that needs to be met is that the repossessions needs to be at least 12 months ago. This is something they can become debatable, because the actual date of the repossessions is not going to really show on your credit report. So it helps out if you remember the repossessions as old as possible. I’m not telling you to be deceitful or to be dishonest, I’m just telling you that you should really figure out exactly when that repossession happened. Sometimes we get timelines confused in our heads and if we really think back, we may find that things are better for us than we thought, in this regard.
If you repossession was a part of a bankruptcy, then the 12 month rule does not apply. Repossessions that are a part of the bankruptcy are totally different in the eyes of lenders. Now, you’re bankruptcy has to be over with. You can’t have a current bankruptcy that is not completely discharged or dismissed by the court and expect to get car loan. That’s just not going to happen and in fact, you really cannot obtain any credit at all, so long as a bankruptcy is still open and is not over with.
Other than that, you just need to know where to go. There are some fantastic opportunities available online that are most likely not available in your local area. You may be pleasantly surprised to discover exactly what you may be able to qualify for very quickly.
