What’s Your Average Down Payment with Bad or No Credit?

finance bad credit

Trying to buy a car near Sebastian with bad credit? It can be stressful purchasing a new or used car, truck, van, or SUV for sale in that position. But it’s not as bad as you might think: Making regular payments on a car loan on-time can actually improve your credit score, and make it easier to secure lower interest rates on other loans. So what kind of down payment should you make in comparison to other Fort Pierce drivers? Learn the rationale here from Vatland CDJR.

The Average Down Payment on a Car with No Credit

10% or $1,000 – whichever is greater – is usually the down payment required by subprime lenders, i.e. banks and other institutions that give loans to people with bad credit or no credit. Chances are, that’s the payment you should be making if you’re in a position where your credit is less-than-ideal in Palm Bay.

Making a larger down payment can make a big difference in lowering your monthly payment, though, and achieving a lower interest rate on your loan. You’ll pay much less in the long run by achieving these two goals, so the best answer to how much you should put down when you have bad credit is “as much as possible.”

Value Your Trade, Meet Your Down Payment with Bad Credit

$1,000 might seem like a huge number if you’re trying to save money while buying a new car or making a solid used car purchase for only a few thousand dollars. Trading in your current vehicle can go a long way, though, if not the entire way. We offer trade-in allowances at Vatland CDJR that are often applied to down payments, and can sometimes even cover entire minimums faced by those with bad or no credit.
