Can my wife and I get a car loan if I have a credit score of 550 and hers is 470?
"My wife and I want a car loan, but we don't have great credit. I usually pay cash for vehicles, but we want a car that's reliable.
Can we get a car loan if our scores are in the 400s and 500s?"
“You might be able to find a loan, but your interest rate is going to be absolutely astronomical.
The best idea is to avoid a car loan. Instead, take your money, buy a car with cash, and use any extra funds to start fixing your credit. Don’t go further into debt if you don’t have to.”

What should I do if I got into a not-at-fault accident with the driver of a rental car and the insurer is denying liability?
I filed a claim with the other driver's insurance company. They are denying liability because they can't get in touch with the insured. They're also saying because police declined to show up to the scene, there's no evidence, even though I filed a report online and have video footage.
