Very Bad Credit in Desperate Need of a New Car

by Amelia
(New York)

Question: I have very bad credit and am in desperate need of a new vehicle. I have had several personal tragedies in the past 10 years, and am just now starting to get my feet back on the ground.

My credit is completely shot. I consolidated debt, and the firm destroyed my credit even more! I have maintained employment. I currently work three jobs and am raising two little girls on my own. I need your help!!

Bad Credit? No Problem! Bad Credit Auto Loans

Answer: Hi Amelia,

Sorry to hear things have been rough for you. I have a few possible scenarios for you. Both are probably going to require some money down on your part. I would think on the low end that you will need $500, but the more the better.

First, A Buy Here Pay Here (BHPH) dealer may be the best option for you. Some BHPH dealers will sell a car with as little as $500 down, but as I mentioned above the more money down the better. With more money down you'll have more options as to what kind of car you can buy.

Second, if you do have a decent ($2000 or more) down payment, then a dealership other than a BHPH dealer could probably help. Especially one that works with Credit Acceptance.

Credit Acceptance guarantees credit approval, no matter how bad it is, but down payment is key to getting a nicer vehicle.

Fill out this quick loan application Any Credit Car Loans and your application will be forwarded to a dealership in your local area that specializes in bad credit car loans.

Third, take a look in your local paper and find fairly inexpensive cars for sale. You may be able to find a seller that would be sympathetic to your situation and will take your $500 as a down payment and allow you to make small payments to them.

Most sellers will not do this, but if you were to find an older couple that is not in need of the money, they may be willing to help you out.

Be sure if you do make a deal like this that you protect yourself. Get a receipt for the down payment and be sure you are listed on the title as the registered owner.

The seller will more than likely want to be listed as the lien holder, but they are just protecting themselves and that is okay until the balance is paid in full.

Keep track of all the payments that you make and if possible, have the seller write you a receipt each payment.

Some Key Points

Unless you have a rather large down payment you will not be able to be picky. Keep in mind that you "need" and don't simply "want" a car. Find one that is going to be as reliable as a cheap car is able to be and don't be too concerned with image and/or options.

If possible, see if a family member can help you out with some down payment, because the more the better. If you do work with a BHPH, take someone with you that knows cars to give the car a good once over mechanically.

Expect to pay high rates and finance for a short term. Pay on this vehicle well and you'll start to rebuild your credit slowly but surely. Next time you buy it shouldn't be quite as frustrating (you won't qualify for prime rates, but it will be a little bit easier).

Hope this helps and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions...Justin

good day to everyone, My name is Allan Davis, i am from Los Angeles, California, United State of America. I want to share a little story of how i got rescued from the hands of scammers and fraudsters by a man called Mr. JOHN MICHAELS from UBA LOAN BANK LTD ( ). In August 2014, i was scammed by a man called David Peterson, he promised to help me get a loan that i should trust him, i trusted him and i sent him my application form containing my details and an identity card. later on, he asked me for a little amount of money and i sent it to him to help me process my loan but after that he just kept asking for more money, i stopped sending him money after i had already sent a total sum of $1,245 to him. i asked him to return the money but i never heard of him again. In September, as i was surfing through the internet then i saw a post by a woman called ELIZABETH FORBES, it was about how she was also scammed by another person when she was looking for loan and how she was able to meet a honest and trustworthy company called UBA LOAN ABNK LTD and she was able to get a loan of $10,000 from them. i read the post to the end and i contacted Elizabeth on her Facebook page: (Elizabeth Forbes) and ask how reliable they were, she said she was surprised as well, that she just wanted to give the company a try. she said she thought they were like the rest but they were different. I contacted them and told them about my story, on October 4th, i applied and i requested for a sum of $20,000, i submitted some documents and 4 days later i was granted a loan, i am so glad that i don't even know how to show my gratitude to them, so i decided to do what miss Elizabeth did. i want everyone and anyone looking for a loan from a legit source to contact because they are much more trusted and reliable than any one i have met. you can contact them through email on: Thank you.
