“A credit score between 670 and 740 is generally considered good for the purpose of financing a car. However, that doesn’t mean that you’ll automatically qualify.
Many incentives, especially low APR financing, is reserved for only the top borrowers, so don’t be surprised if you don’t qualify.
In the meantime, there are things you can do to help your bad credit, like:
- keep making payments on time
- pay off old debt
- monitor your credit using a tool like Credit Karma“
