Bad Credit Auto Financing

If you’re in need of a newer, more reliable vehicle but are having trouble securing a loan due to poor or no credit, we just might be able to provide a solution for you!

While we can’t guarantee that everyone who walks through our door will be approved for a loan, there’s a good chance you can get financing through us even if the following conditions apply to you:

  • You were turned down for a loan by other dealerships or lenders.
  • You have a modest down payment (such as $1,000) to use toward a preowned vehicle.
  • Your credit score is low and/or you have a past bankruptcy or car repossession.

Not only can we likely get you approved for financing even with the conditions above, but there’s also a good chance we can offer attractive terms on the loan, such as a low interest rate.

What You Need to Secure a Loan at USA Auto AZ

In many cases, all you need to be approved for a loan at USA Auto AZ is:

  • At least $1,000 to put down
  • Proof of active car insurance

Other assets that help with securing a loan and getting offered more attractive terms include:

  • Currently having a job and being able to show a stable work history
  • Being able to show a steady history of making rent or mortgage payments on time
  • Having and maintaining a personal banking and/or checking account
  • Demonstrating a history of paying off credit card bills, even small lines of credit

Once you’re approved and you drive home in the pre-owned vehicle of your choice, you will start to make payments on the loan every 30 days. If you’re paying on time every month, it will start to rebuild your credit quickly, since we make our reports to the credit bureau each month.

Consider Saving Up and Putting Even More Than $1,000 Down

While we do appreciate the sign of good faith that a $1,000 down payment represents, and we understand it’s not always easy being able to scrape together that much, we invite you to at least consider saving up just a little more than that amount.

If you’re able to offer more than $1,000 down, one of the following advantages will open up to you:

  • You’ll be able to choose from a nicer, newer vehicle on our lot without breaking the bank, or
  • The terms of the loan will be more attractive, such as:
    • Lower monthly payment or shorter loan term, and
    • Possibly lower interest rate.

Putting $1,000 down is in some ways similar to making a minimum payment toward a credit card bill. While it does move your balance in the right direction, it doesn’t take a huge chunk out of what you owe. Saving up and being able to offer more than $1,000 will make your dues less intimidating after you receive your auto loan. If you aren’t able to put more than $1,000 down, that’s OK. We will still help you drive home in a great pre-owned vehicle.
