Bad credit car loans are different from the usual good credit car loans in two ways;

One, is that interest rates and fees are generally higher. Lenders usually charge a higher interest to people with bad credit in an effort to make up for any potential losses.

How It works

Just like a usual car loan, your financial statements will be assessed in order to determine your capacity to repay the loan. The lender will decide on the amount that you may potentially be pre-approved for. After that, you can go to your favorite dealership and shop for your new car.


Things to consider when applying for a pre-approved car loan with bad credit;

Interest rate and fees – Always compare interest rates from different lenders to ensure you get the best deal. Better still, a finance broker can help save you time and money and can secure you quotes from various lenders with just one application.
Loan Term – Repayment terms can be 12-months to 60-months and can even be up to 7 years depending on your circumstances. A shorter loan term means higher monthly payments but will pay off your loan and own your car outright quicker. Consider your monthly disposable income when deciding on the loan term.
Insurance costs – Since the car loan will likely be secured, the lender may require you to purchase insurance until the end of the loan term.
