“Capital One is widely known to work with people who have lower credit.
You may get approved, but don’t expect to get the car loan rate they’re advertising.
Most advertised car loan rates are for people with top-notch credit. As a person with less-than-stellar credit, you’re probably going to get a rate much higher.
Before you go through the hassle of applying, contact Capital One to see what their rate might be for someone with your credit.

Will refinancing my car start my loan over?
Does refinancing your car loan cause the loan to start over? I have a car loan that I've paid on for 27 months, but the interest rate is 18%. I've built my credit score to 753 during that time and my friend told me I should definitely refinance the loan. However, I have my reservations because I don't want to start from scratch.
