Our extensive, statewide network of dealers and lenders is standing by, awaiting your application. Submit your application, and our loan companies compete to fund your loan.

Bad credit? Not to worry. We help you apply online and get pre-approved for financing, even if your history of credit is less than perfect. If you go from bank to bank, completing your application, you may face several rejections along the way. With our process, you can apply from the privacy of your home or office, and we’ll find a bad credit car dealer who can get you in the driver’s seat. Income is their main concern, not FICO score. Sure, your interest rate won’t be as low as someone with a credit score of 700 or higher, meaning it’s important to opt for an economical vehicle with affordable monthly payments. If you have less-than-perfect credit, you’ll probably have your application placed with a bad credit dealership or subprime auto lender. Fortunately, they report your installments to the credit reporting agencies. This is crucial to rebuilding your credit. Applying is simple, fast, and there are no obligations. Just submit your online credit application.

Financing a Car with No Down Payment

Down payments can be made in cash or trade equity, and typically range from 5-20% of the vehicle’s sticker price. They are often required of borrowers with a disappointing history of debt payment. When dealing with subprime credit, lenders are focused on the Loan-to-Value Ratio, or LTV. Divide the amount borrowed by the wholesale value of the vehicle being financed. This is the LTV.

Amount Borrowed Vehicle Value Loan-to-Value
$15,000 $17,500 86%
$17,500 $22,000 79%
$20,000 $30,000 67%

The lower the LTV, the less risk for the lender. That said, we get a lot of applicants the loan they need anyway.

We help our clients get into a new car all the time, even with no money down.
