"Why did I get denied a car loan? "
"I have a perfect credit score and a decent job, so I don’t understand why the bank wouldn’t give me a loan to buy a new car. This is also not the first time I have bought a car either. What do banks look at and how can I fix this?

“Lenders will typically look at your credit and credit history, your income and debt, and the value of the car you are trying to purchase.
Since you said that you have perfect credit and a good job, the issue is probably with either the value of the car or that you have other debt that could prevent you from being able to pay off the car loan.
The only way to know for sure is to ask the bank. However, you could try applying somewhere else if you feel like the bank is not treating you fairly or consider leasing vs buying the vehicle.

"Can my bank come after my other car that I have financed with them if I default on another car loan with them? "
"I bought two cars using the same lender. One of them I have been able to keep up with the payments as that car is my daily driver and the one that I really need to keep. The other car was purchased as a luxury when times were good but things have changed and I’m probably going to have to turn the car over to the lender. I want to make sure the lender is not going to come for my other car too before I do anything. "

"How can I get out of a cosigned car loan? "
"I cosigned on a car loan for a friend that I thought I could trust, but as it turns out he is really bad at making financial decisions. He pays late all the time and it is killing my credit. I tried to talk to him about it and he got really mad and defensive. Is there some way I can get my name off the loan without his cooperation? "

"Can a dealership really ask you to bring a car back after you’ve signed all the paperwork? "
"I went to the dealership to help my son buy his first car the other day. It turns out that he’s got good credit and was able to qualify for a car loan without me as a cosigner. The salesman swore up and down he could get him financed at a good rate, and we signed the paperwork and left with the car. After about a month, he got a call from the dealership saying they couldn’t get him financed and that they needed the car back. Is this legal and what should he do? "
