Advice for
Auto Loans With Poor Credit


If you need auto loan help, have bad credit questions, or want to simply get some advice for auto loans with poor credit, then you've come to the right place. Not only am I currently a Finance Manager for a car dealership, but my specialty is sub prime credit.

That's not to say I don't know prime lending standards, because I do and can certainly help you with anything in the prime arena as well. No matter what your situation I can more than likely help.

Being a Finance Manager has given me the opportunity to review tens of thousands of credit applications and credit files. I've seen what has:

  • Limited customers
  • Helped customers
  • How customers have improved their FICO scores and credit tiers
  • Plus, I know how lenders think and what they approve and don't approve.


Feel free to ask me your questions just below, but before you do here is one of the most common questions asked:

Where Can I Get Approved for Auto Loans With Poor Credit?

One quick bit of auto loan help I can give you if you are buying a car with bad credit is that it is very difficult, if not impossible to get approved on your own.

It's usually not possible to simply walk in to your local bank or credit union and apply for a car loan (sometimes, but not typical). If you do this, you may find yourself quite frustrated with multiple turn downs.

Most auto lenders do not loan direct to non-prime and sub prime car buyers. This applies to both online auto lenders and traditional brick and mortar auto lenders.

The best, easiest and usually the only way to go is to work with professionals that specialize in auto loans with poor credit. A company like specializes in helping bad credit car buyers find good cars and financing through their nationwide network of lenders/dealers.

Why is Your Credit Holding You Back?

In addition, many visitors that contact me are not familiar with their credit (which can make it difficult for me to give auto loan help when I'm not sure what we are dealing with), they simply know that they've been turned down because it was bad.

But, is it really "that" bad or is it just a few items holding you back? Do you know your credit score? Would boosting your score 40 points cause many of those turn downs to become approvals? Possibly!

If you have never reviewed your credit score or haven't in awhile go ahead and Get your Credit Score from CreditReport.com - fast, free and easy!



Now that we've covered that, what can I help you with?
