How to get a Car Loan if you file for Bankrupt?
 
Don't think that if you've had to claim bankruptcy that a car loan is out of the question forever. In fact,
 
many lenders are very agreeable to working with individuals recovering from bad credit. Here are some
 
steps to follow so that your post-bankruptcy car loan application is successful.
 
1- Get your credit reports and credit scores
 
We should all check our credit reports and scores on a regular basis in these days of identity theft. If
 
you're coming back from bankruptcy, you want to check it at least once every six months to make sure
 
no errors have arisen. It happens. Lenders for a car loan are going to look more closely at your history
 
with automotive loans, so check to see what the report says.
 
2- Put together a down payment
 
After a bankruptcy, many financial advisors urge clients to operate on a cash only basis for a full year
 
before attempting to rebuild credit through loans. A sizable down payment indicates less risk for the
 
lender. If you default, they have your vehicle as collateral. Trade in your current vehicle to loosen up
 
extra cash toward that larger down payment if the need for a vehicle is urgent.
 
3- Shop around
 
Do your car shopping in one day if possible to limit the number of credit inquiries, which can impact
 
your credit score. Gather the necessary paperwork, from pay stubs to your actual credit report. Pre-
 
approval before you even step into a dealership is a great idea if you can make it work. The more recent
 
your bankruptcy, the higher the rate on the loan will be. But if you walk in with an existing deal in hand,
 
many dealerships will try to match or beat it. Click here to view our New and Used Inventory
 
4- Avoid the worst loans
 
Be careful about what sort of contract you sign; individuals with poor credit history can become victims
 
of predatory loans. Watch out for hidden costs and make sure at the outset that the monthly payments
 
are comfortable for your financial situation. If you default too soon after a bankruptcy, there is no
 
option to file again so soon. Get Pre-approved Here or Click here to Calculate Your Payments.
 
5- Pay on time
 
One of the best ways to rebuild credit after a bankruptcy is to make regular car payments, on time each
 
and every month. It raises your credit score more quickly than if you didn't borrow money for a car.
 
6- Refinance
 
After six to twelve months of regular payments on your car loan, check your credit rating. You may see
 
an improvement to your score, which then means you can re-finance the loan to get a lower interest
 
rate. That's not a guaranteed outcome, so exercise caution and purchase a car you can definitely
 
manage at the original monthly payment should lowered interest not be offered.
