Can I finance a Honda Fit if I'm 20 and make $800 per month?

"I'm 20, make $800 a month, and want to buy a Honda Fit.

The loan would be for $5,500 after a $1,000 down payment.

If I have no credit history, will I be able to get this loan?"

“You might be able to get this loan, but your interest rate is going to be exorbitantly high.
Your best bet is to go to a credit union, as they’re more willing to offer car loans if you have no credit history.
Also, don’t forget that you’re going to need full-coverage car insurance. At your age, this can realistically cost between $300 to $500, regardless of your driving record.
Add gas and maintenance, and you might be looking at $500 a month or more to own the car. If you don’t have any other expenses (rent, bills, etc.), you might be alright, but only you can make that decision.”
