Auto Loans in Franklin (WI)

Do you need a car loan, the sooner the better? You’ve come to the right place. Our extensive, statewide network of lenders and dealers is standing by, waiting for your application. When you apply online, we’ll find you a lender based on location, income, credit profile, and other factors.

What if I Have Credit Problems?

Below-average credit can be a problem when trying to finance a new vehicle, but not with us. Many major dealerships now have entire sales teams dedicated to special financing.” These are referred to as bad credit dealerships, and we have tons of them in our network. Sure, the APR on your loan won’t be as low as someone with a credit score of 700 plus, so it’s important to choose an economical vehicle with easily-affordable monthly payments. You’ll typically be approved by a bad credit car dealer or auto lender. Typically, they will report to the credit agencies, which is great when you need to rebuild your credit.

Can I Buy a Car with No Down Payment?

Buyers with good credit can typically finance a car with no down payment. If you have a low credit score, however, your dealer may require you to offer a payment in advance. At this stage, the Loan-to-Value ratio becomes one of the most important factors. This is the amount you borrow in relation to the wholesale value of the vehicle.

Loan Amount Vehicle Value LTV
$7500 $10,000 75%
$12,000 $15,000 80%
$15,000 $17,500 86%

Most subprime lenders prefer lower LTV ratios. Because the lender doesn’t have as much tied up in the vehicle, they are in a better position to recoup their losses if borrower defaults – a serious risk when financing people with less-than-perfect credit. With that being said, we get many loan-seekers approved for financing, despite their lack of down payment.

Apply online, and indicate zero down payment in the appropriate section. We will place your application with a lender willing to finance your purchase, no down payment necessary.
