Can You Finance a Car with No Credit?

woman reviewing financing and credit



Don’t lose hope, you can finance a car with no credit or bad credit. Will it be harder? In some ways it can be, but if you’ve had your eye on a new Honda Accord or new Honda CR-V, the Honda of Escondido finance center wants you to know that obtaining them isn’t out of your grasp—there’s always a way. Below, we’ll detail not only how to finance a vehicle in the San Marcos area with little to no credit, but we’ll offer some tips on how to increase the odds in your favor.

Financing with Bad or Even No Credit

The truth is, the down payment and interest rates are higher when financing a new Honda car, hatchback, or SUV with no credit, so it’s a good idea to factor this into your budget. Review these tips before visiting our Vista-area dealership:

  • Don’t assume that you won’t be approved. There are various financing options available, so remember to ask questions to see if there’s a financing package that will better suit your budget.
  • Boost your credit score. There are some easy ways to quickly boost your credit rating. By using your credit card on small purchases and promptly pay them off, you can improve your score.
  • Know your budget and your credit score. Often, your credit score gets hit when you apply for financing. Make sure that your loan applications have a 14-day period to limit the potential damage on your score.
  • The first offer isn’t the only one. Since most dealerships work with multiple lenders, you should have a variety of different offers to choose from.
  • Be prepared for a higher cost. Higher interest rates and a larger down payment are common when seeking financing when you have no credit.
  • Consider leasing. Your lease payments may be higher than the average lease, but will likely be more affordable than buying a vehicle.
