Financing a Car with Bad Credit or No Credit

Any New Orleans driver financing a car with no credit should:

  • Save For a Bigger Down Payment: Having bad credit or no credit can make you more of a risk, but you can offset that by putting more money down.
  • Set a Budget: When you’re financing a car with bad credit or no credit, it’s important to know exactly what you can afford.
  • Ask Questions: Don’t assume the first offer is the best you’ll get. Ask around to find the best option to fit your financial situation.
  • Know and Control Your Credit Score: It’s always helpful to know your credit score. You can avoid taking a hit by keeping all loan applications within a 14-day period.
  • Boost Your Credit Score: Using your credit card to buy small things and then immediately paying them off can help your credit.
  • Expect Higher Costs: Learning how to finance a car with no credit means accepting that higher interest rates are likely and that the overall price of the loan may be higher.
  • Consider Leasing: Even if your heart is set on buying, here are benefits to leasing over buying when your credit is low or non-existent since monthly payments will be lower than with traditional financing. Control your finances over the lease term and you may be in a better situation to buy a few years down the road.
