What Credit Score is Needed to Finance a Car?

signing paper
 

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, or even a used vehicle, you’re probably wondering what kind of credit score you’ll need to finance a car. The good news is that there’s no minimum required credit score to finance a car. The even better news is that at Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we provide financing that works for customers with a variety of credit backgrounds. From bad credit financing to excellent credit financing, we work hard to accommodate all Newton customers.

Types of Credit Scores Used to Finance a Car

Here’s how credit scores are ranked for the purposes of financing your next car:

  • Deep subprime
  • Subprime
  • Nonprime
  • Prime
  • Super Prime

We Work Hard to Approve You for an Auto Loan

Regardless of which credit category your score falls into, chances are we can provide you auto financing here at Allen Samuels Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. As a general rule, the higher your credit score is, the lower your interest rate and monthly payments will likely be. 

What does that mean for you? It means if your score is higher, you’ll benefit financially. What if your score is lower? You’re still very likely to be approved for an auto loan. Why choose bad credit financing for your next new or used vehicle purchase over purchasing a cheap used car outright? Service costs and other expenses of older vehicles aside, getting approved for an auto loan is a great way to rebuild your credit in the long run! If you work to establish credit now, you’re more likely to be approved for a prime or super prime loan rate later!

Compare Buying vs. Leasing

There are two types of auto financing to consider: buying and leasing. Buying lets you spread the cost of your vehicle plus interest over a period of time, usually 24-72 months. When you stop making payments, the vehicle is yours, lien-free. If buying sounds like too much of a commitment, leasing can be a great option. 

Leasing lets you use the car for a period of time with certain restrictions, usually for 24-39 months. When your lease ends, you return the vehicle. The advantage of leasing is it’s often cheaper monthly than financing a purchase. Want to learn more?
