How to Get a Car with Bad Credit

Even if you have a sub-par credit rating, upgrading your Woodland Hills commute with a new luxury sedan or SUV is easy and hassle-free at Cadillac of Beverly Hills. Here are some steps you can take beforehand to ensure you secure the best deal possible:

  1. Set a budget to see how much you can afford to pay per month. Include not only the price of the vehicle, but also annual registration fees, car insurance, maintenance costs, and gas costs.
  2. Consider making a larger down payment. This will give you a smaller loan balance to pay off, leading to less interest paid overall.
  3. Before applying for a car loan, check your credit report and see if there are any easy ways for you to improve your score.
  4. Be realistic about the kind of car you should purchase. Don’t get more than you need.
  5. Ask questions and explore your options. Comparing rates offered by different lenders will give you a better sense of where you stand and what you can afford.

How to Improve Your Credit Score

As long as you keep up with your monthly payments, a car loan can actually be an ideal way to boost your credit score and credit profile. As you pay off the loan over time, your credit will improve, making you eligible to refinance your car loan for a lower interest rate. The finance specialists at Cadillac of Beverly Hills will be happy to help you take the steps that will lead you to a better overall credit rating.
