Not everyone can borrow a five-figure sum to get a car, and if you have a poor credit history, doing so can be even more of a challenge. In the second quarter of 2019, the average credit score was 713 for those taking out a new-car loan and 656 for those taking out a used-car loan, according the Experian State of the Automotive Finance Market report.
The good news is that car loans for people with bad credit can be found. But being a high-risk borrower in the eyes of an auto lender means there?s a good chance you?ll pay a higher interest rate.
