How Does Credit Factor Into a Car Purchase or Lease?

If you’re wondering how to get a car with bad credit, you’ll probably want to know that your credit score factors into things. Having a lower credit score means that you’ll get lower monthly payments and will likely have the ability to switch to a shorter term for your loan, leading to lower overall payments. 

Even if your credit score is bad, you can still get financed with our finance experts because we work with lenders from Buhler to Newton to provide flexible financing solutions for everyone.

Your credit score can be impacted by several things, including these factors:

  • The amount of available credit in dollars is a major factor in what your credit score is. If you have several credit cards that are close to or at their credit limits, your total credit usage will cause your score to drop. Meanwhile, if you have lots of credit sources but not much credit used, your score will be higher.
  • The diversity of your credit sources will impact what your credit score is. If you have just credit cards, your score will tend to be lower than if you have credit cards, a car loan, a mortgage, and other diverse sources.
  • The rate at which you pay your loans down will impact how good your credit score is. If you’ve missed payments, that will obviously cause your score to be lower.

What Steps Should I Take To Get Approved Bad Credit?

Wondering how to get a car with bad credit, step-by-step? Here’s a helpful list of things to do:

  1. Determine what kind of monthly payment you can afford.
  2. Try putting more money down if you can.
  3. Try improving your credit report prior to shopping for loans.
  4. Be honest with yourself about how much car you can really afford.
  5. Ask questions!
