Let’s start driving possibility together.
At Credit Acceptance, we think everyone should be able to purchase a new or used vehicle as quickly and as easily as possible. Which is why, instead of seeing poor credit or no credit as a roadblock, we see possibilities of getting you into the right car for you and keeping you on the road.
With Credit Acceptance, these benefits go along for the ride.

Bad credit, no credit history, fixed or unemployment income and more—dealers enrolled with Credit Acceptance are able to approve everyone.

What drives customers to Credit Acceptance?
When I got my first car, unfortunately I got into an accident with that car which caused me to file bankruptcy. Being able to get past all of this with bankruptcy, I'm thankful. And I'm more so thankful because Credit Acceptance allowed me to do that.
Early in life when I was 18, I got offered a lot of credit cards, and I didn't really understand the importance of credit and the role it would play in my life today and ultimately destroyed my credit. The work that Credit Acceptance does is truly making a big impact on people's lives. It definitely made a big impact on mine.
CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, OH
I was able to finance the car my wife and I fell in love with; and through on-time payments boost my credit at the same time. I would not have been able to make this purchase without Credit Acceptance.
