"Where can I get a car loan with a 534 credit score? "
"I was told to try a credit union that specializes in bad credit loans, but I was denied.
I only need $5,000 to buy the car with my $2,000 down payment. Can I apply for a loan elsewhere or am I wasting my time?

“There are plenty of online lenders that specialize in poor credit car loans. They are usually easy to find with a quick Google search. If you go that route, though, you should be prepared to pay a super-high interest rate, around 20% or more.
Based solely on your credit score, a better option for you would be to take a step back from the car and save your money. In a few months, you might be able to pay cash for a car and avoid paying an inflated amount of interest.

Why do I need gap insurance on a new Jeep Wrangler?
I bought my new car two days ago and the salesperson really pushed me to get gap insurance. I turned it down since they were going to charge me $1,000 for it. My car costs $41,000 and my loan will be for $43,000 after fees, etc. Should I have gotten it?

Why is my interest rate so high on my car loan despite my excellent credit?
"I recently bought a car from my local dealer who worked out the financing for me. It is a great car and the payments are affordable. That being said, I keep seeing that people with an okay credit score are getting approved for four to five percent interest rates, and yet I could only get approved for 12% despite having nearly perfect credit.
