A rebuilt title signifies uncertainty about the car’s history, functionality, and value
Lenders prefer a clear valuation of the vehicle as collateral
So, our top tip for financing a car in this situation is to seek out alternative lenders, such as:
Smaller banks or credit unions: Can be more flexible, especially if you’re a long-time customer
Get a personal loan: Don’t require collateral, only good credit and proof of income
Bear in mind that personal loans will probably carry a higher interest rate, so paying off the loan early is in your best interest.
