How can I get approved for a $40,000 car loan?

"Is it possible to get approved for a $40,000 car loan with a small down payment? I really want to buy a loaded Ford Mustang. However, the total loan amount is $40,000. I have very little for a down payment."

“There are many variables for getting approved for a new car loan, especially for a higher dollar amount like $40,000.
When you apply for a loan, your lender will take into account several factors, including:
  • Current income and debt
  • Debt-to-income ratio
  • Loan-to-value ratio
  • Credit score
Without providing that information, there’s no way to say for sure if you’ll get approved. However, a high credit score, little debt, and solid, steady income is a formula for getting approved for $40,000.
If you can’t afford to buy a new car, leasing a vehicle can be a great alternative.”
