How to get an auto loan?
I am 21 years old. I am a supervisor at a plant making $30,000 a year. I have a 639 credit score, but little credit history, and I have $3,000 to put down on a car...but no one will finance me. I've tried a credit union, I've tried the dealership. I even tried JD Byrider, but they didn't have anything I wanted. I do not understand what I have to do to get someone to finance me. My parents both have bad credit so having them cosign wouldn't do any good. Are any of those "No Credit Loan" website legit? I am getting desperate here...and now I've been to so many dealerships that having that many inquiries is starting to effect me. What should I do? The car is 12,900. The credit union I applied with is my local bank.
