For a lot of people, buying a car is the largest and most important purchase that they will ever make in their lives. You want a car, but you have a bad credit history. You have applied for loans, but you are finding it very difficult to obtain one. You are not on your own as a lot of people have experienced the same thing. The good news is that there is an answer. Get hold of your bank manager, it helps if you have a good relationship with him/her. Find out the ins and outs and the terms<!--getting a bad credit car loan the bank will probably want to know details about the car and if you are able to put down a deposit. The bank may not be too keen on giving you a bad credit car loan if the car is too old or of little value. This is because if you don't keep up the payments and the vehicle has to be repossessed for whatever reason, the cost of recovering and selling your car may be more than what the car will fetch.
So while this may not be an ideal solution for you, it does give you a chance of getting back on the road, and possibly improving your credit score at the same time.In this case the bank will probably require you to have someone to cosign your bad credit car loan. In some of the big cities some large car dealerships may offer high risk bad credit car loans. These dealerships will sell you a car regardless of your credit history, so long as you have a good job. There is usually a large down payment required and of course-->the interest rates are fairly high. As always, it pays to do your research as there are great variations in the interest rates charged for these types of loans. The Internet should be your first port of call for research purposes, as there are lots of lenders who are very keen for your custom. Take your time and don't accept the first offer of a bad credit car loan you get. Good hunting.
