How Can I Qualify For A Car Loan If I Have Bad Credit?
Auto loans are secured which means it is a type of loan that is backed by collateral. In the case of an auto loan, the vehicle is the collateral. Also, subprime loans are available to borrowers who apply for an auto loan with a credit score that falls below average. Typically, Canadians with an overall credit score of less than 670 are considered subprime. Subprime loans often carry higher interest rates, depending on your situation, compared to more conventional loans. Once you take a loan and establish a good payment history, your credit will improve, allowing you to refinance your vehicle or Purchase a new Mazda with a lower interest rate.
How Can A Car Loan Help Build My Credit?
A car loan is an effective strategy for credit building, especially if you have bad credit or no credit. Your credit score is based on components like payment history, with consistent on-time payments accounting for 35% of your score. To get your credit back on track, you need to prove to lenders you can responsibly manage a loan. Paying your auto loan on time for at least 1 year shows a pattern of responsible payment history which is what builds a credit score.
Are You Ready To Start Rebuilding Your Credit?
If you are ready to start improving your credit with an auto loan, these steps will help you prepare, apply, and get easy approval.
- If you have past due, overextended, or overdue loans sent to collections, you should try to catch up with minimum payments for all your current credit obligations.
- Save up a down payment to lower your loan amount. Zero down is possible, however, if you have a down payment that will help increase your approval status.
- Make sure you spend within your budget. Do not purchase a vehicle that is not within your means.
- Pay on time, every time. Going forward, make sure that you pay your car loan on time and in full every time it is due.
