If you don't have a social security number, you probably don't have a credit score. The only way you can get a car on credit is at a Buy-Here-Pay-Here car lot. The cars they sell are as good as anyone else's, you'll just pay a lot more. Apply for a SS number as soon as you can, so when you get the car from the lot, they can begin to report your credit worthiness. And ALWAYS make your payment early.
