If any of these financial situations apply to you then you may have bad credit.  There is a good chance that you may qualify for a bad credit car loan at Max Auto Sales.

What are our used car loan and financing specialists going to look at?

The finance team will want to ask you questions about:
  • Your detailed credit history
  • Your past loan repayments and your ability to pay back a used car loan
  • The amount you can provide for a down payment
  • The type and price of used car you want to drive
  • Your monthly budget
  • What does your last 3 years of job history look like?

It’s true that some situations and things in your credit history can’t be overcome, or that you may have to wait a bit longer before you will get approved. For instance if you have a recently discharged bankruptcy then the finance company will want to wait usually 3 months after it has been discharged before they offer you a car loan. Of course it’s only naturally that you may have to put a larger down payment than someone who has good credit. And obviously if your credit history includes a loan to our finance company or any other car loan that you didn’t pay back and the car was repossessed then why would they want to loan you more money? Of course in those situations you will normally be denied financing. However if your credit history shows other loans since then that you are paying back and making timely payments on then that shows you’ve turned around, that you are trying hard. In those situations we want to work with you to help rebuild your credit. So if you are looking for a bad credit car dealership near you you’ll want to know our bad credit financing team will look beyond your poor credit score when determining your eligibility for sub-prime auto financing. Plus by paying timely on your car loan through our finance company you will help rebuild your credit! Yes, our finance company will report your payment history to the credit bureau; YES this can help rebuild your credit! We’ll ask you questions about income, how long you’ve been employed, and other criteria to really help you figure out how much of a car loan you can afford, and work hard to get you financed.
