The Best Car Loan For Your Financial Picture

If you???re looking for a new car, you want to be as prepared as possible and have your financing in place before you hit the car dealer. Buying a new car is a big decision to make and you???ll want the entire process to be as smooth and stress free as you can make it. One of the first things that you can do before applying for a loan for your new car is to find out what your credit rating is.

Once you know where you stand with your credit you???ll know your limitations for applying for a car. If your credit is good, you???ll have no problem walking into your bank or to the car dealer and qualifying for a car loan. However, if your credit report leaves something to be desired you???ll need to be prepared to fight for a car loan and you may have to accept unfavorable credit terms in order to qualify.

Having a bad credit rating does limit your options for getting a car loan but it doesn???t leave you completely out in the cold. There are some options for you, and things that you can do, to get closer to having your new car. The one thing that you should do is make sure that your financing is in place before you go to the car dealer. This is because you???ll have much more credibility with the dealer if you have financing instead of applying with them for a loan and being told that you don???t qualify. Yes, this means that if you can???t find financing for you new car that you should stay off the car lot until you do! Otherwise they may give you that car loan at a high interest rate and might not give you the best deal for the car than if you had arrived with financing.

Talk to your bank about your low credit rating and see if they are willing to negotiate with you. If you already do banking with them they may be willing to give you some type of loan term since they have access to your financial records and know your spending habits. If your bank turns you down you can look on the Internet for loans that are available for people with a bad credit rating. Keep in mind that if you qualify for a bad credit loan that you???ll be paying a high interest rate since you???re considered an un-secure risk.

The most important advice if you have a low credit rating and want to buy a new car is to have as much money to put down on your new car as you can. This way you lower the amount of money that you need for a loan which may make creditors more apt to take a chance and give you your loan.
