Do: Know your budget.
You’ve more than likely heard the phrase, “live beneath your means.”
When purchasing a car, it’s important for you to evaluate your monthly
expenses to help you determine how much you can afford to spend on a
quality, reliable vehicle.
Don’t: Get discouraged from buying a car if you have bad
credit or no credit.
Just because you have credit problems doesn’t mean you can’t get
approved for vehicle financing. Credit Acceptance is an auto finance
company that helps car buyers with bad credit or no credit obtain
credit approval. All you have to do is fill out this short form on our website to get connected with
a dealer enrolled on the Credit Acceptance program near you who can
help you get approved.
Do: Check your credit score.
Since creditors pull your credit early-on in the car-buying process,
it’s important for you to know your credit before going to the
dealership. Check your credit score and request a free credit report
once every 12 months through any of the three major credit reporting
bureaus — Equifax, Experian and TransUnion.
Do: Perform your research ahead of time.
Before you make a trip to the dealership, it may be helpful to
research the type of car that best meets your needs and budget. This
can help you make a more informed decision and may save you time
during the car-buying process.
Don’t: Rush the process.
Purchasing a car is a pretty big deal, so you don’t want to make any
hasty decisions. Taking the time to determine your budget, check your
credit score and research your car-buying options can help you make
the best decision for you.
