that's nice but you probably have a nice income, job history, and not 18 years old. Or maybe you got a co-signer At this present time, it is hard to believe a lender would fiance $40k for someone with 650 score unless the lender feels confident the borrower will not have trouble making payments (good paying job, collateral, co-signer, etc) I have over 900 score, no issues for me.

there is alittle more to it than just a FICO score.

Debt to Income ratio is a huge part of it.

FICO doesn't calculate this, because they don't know your income when they assign you a score.

ok so i have this issue....

ordered my car and gave a $500 dollar deposit. finally came, almost exploded with joy when i saw it. everything was cool until im trying to finance the car. they said its really hard becaue i've never borrowed such a big loan before ($40K) and my fico is just below 600. i got a down payment covered, which is not much but better than something. i got a steady job at the bank and i make $30k a year (just got a raise and about to be promoted to supervisor... =D). any thoughts on whether i'll get financed, even at a high (kick-in-the-nut) rate? ....or will i'll be forced to see someone make off with 'victoria' (yes, i named my camaro victoria) ??? ='(

a score below 600- and you make 30K a year, and you are trying to finance 40K.. Good luck..

How much down will you have?-- If you put 20% down, maybe.. GMAC might be your best bet, they are hurting, and seem pretty flexible to who they loan to. Expect a rate of 10%+ Maybe upwards of 15%- which would make it such a rip off it wouldn't be worth it.


Not to rain on your parade, but a score below 600 is bad, and it didn't get that way with just lack of credit, it got that way with late payments, or accounts in default. This scares banks away from wanting to loan to you. To them it is pretty much a forecast of what is to come. Sure the weather man can be wrong, but we all still plan our wadrobe based off what the weather guy says.

Bottom line-- It is going to be tough. Co-signer might be your best bet.

Good luck!

My father just bought a new 2010 Silverado last week and financed it. GMAC wasn't even an option for financing according to the dealer and their leases were stupid expensive.
Credit score around 800, 48 years old, self employed, 75K a year, he financed personally 32K for 72 months and got 4.9% with Wacovia. Also, 2010 truck, he got 5K off sticker and a free "Obama" tool box, bed liner and bed cap rails setup just for buying a Chevy and being a business.

It's a good time to buy Chevy if you have the credit, but I doubt it will be so easy with a worse credit score.

5 Camaro's sitting at my dealership that people ordered but no one had a FICO over 700 so no car. Of coarse unemployement in my area is almost 20% so that may have something to do with it also.

I had 820 when I got my car with only 2K down on 37,000.00 total. Got 5.5 interest rate.

There is MORE to that story,, has to be..

I can promise you someone with 800 score and 75K income will get approved by GMAC, especially not financing the full price of the truck (5K rebate)

But I agree with the "credit crisis" it is harder to get approved for financing these days.

he probably misspoke a bit...

GMAC would have financed his dad...no questions asked, but wachovia gave a great rate for 72 months that GMAC wouldnt touch.

currently bank of america and wachovia are both serious about lending money. anyone who is very strong and has a good downpay can get in the 3s and 4s with either bank.

My score was 824, had $9500 as a down payment, but debt to income ratio was bad (they took my families mortgage and put it all under my name ) Got a rate of 8.0, but eff that!!! I'm making higher payments than what they ask for. My last required payment was $41

Something doesn't add up here...

they mistakenly had you with a high debt to income ratio, but you have a credit score of 824...

I got my loan through GMAC, 4.69% for 60 months, two weeks ago at my dealer. Wonder why they said it wasn't an option.

I put 8K down with a mid 700 score. My wife has a 830 score. We tried 5 banks. (The dealer did this. Was kind of mad at first due to the potential score drop but it worked out.) I have a very low debt to earn ratio but I had a business fail in 2006 which caused me to file personal bankruptcy. (FYI If you own your own biz never sign personal guarantees.) My credit was a high 800 before and have a perfect payment record.

Two banks said NO. (Ironically one was the bank that holds my mortgage which has never been one day late in ten years.)

The other two approved with good rates of 5.5 for 72.

The last was the local credit union which approved 4.8 for 72.

4.8% Vs 5.5% is huge over the term of the loan. I would try a credit union if it was me.

yea, i don't know either, but maybe i forgot to mention that my name is on the mortgage don't know if that matters...my credit score went up A LOT becuase i was $14K in c.c. debt (school ) 10 months before i bought my car. when i paid that all off (1.5 months before my car came in), i checked my own score and i saw 792.

in hindsight, i don't care about the high interest because i am paying way over my required payment, so i'm paying my car off quicker.
