I see you wrote about bad credit


Asked by Sep 06, 2014 at 11:21 PM about the Honda Civic

Question type: General

What if you have no established credit? I have always been told that no credit is worse
than bad credit. Is that true? I need a reliable car, and have nobody to cosign with me. Is
there a way to get around needing a cosigner? I can definitely afford the monthly payment!

Destineyms,if you can afford a payment,find a finance on lot,buy here pay here,they don,t run your credit,and find the right car within your budget.They usually want a little down,but if you can do payment,s im sure there is one that will get you in a car.And as far as credit these day.s you have to have pretty good credit,to even make a loan these day,s.

T_S_T, I found the perfect car, affordable etc. I want to put 1500 down. It is just ridiculous, nobody will give me the chance to establish any credit! I really don't want another rink-a-dink car that I have throw ungodly amounts of cash into every month. I have a son now, I am in school, working full time, and volunteering at the hospital, I need reliability.

I can understand,your circumstances,credit is tuff,our economy has killed itself,and us a long with it,credit is only for the rich,and poverty for the mid and poor,i wish you luck on your endeavour,hope you find the right car.

Have you tried one of your local credit unions to secure a loan?


Tom, I have not tried a credit union. Would that be a better option than just financing the car from the dealership?

dont even bother they are all junk cars
