Improve Your Credit Beforehand

If you know you’re going to buy a new vehicle in a few months, there are some steps you can take to improve your credit situation. Check your credit score as early as possible, and work to pay off past-due accounts, dispute errors, and add any positive information that will improve your score.

Do everything you can to avoid adding harmful credit items to your score. Make any payments you have on time, and avoid taking on any additional loans. With some work, you can improve your score and be looking at an easy time getting approved for a quality vehicle with a low down payment!

Buying a Used Car with Bad Credit Get Pre-Approved

It’s always a smart move to get pre-approved before you set foot on the lot. At Texas Auto Center, our fast, online pre-approval form makes it easy to know exactly what you can afford and will let you shop with confidence. Take a few minutes to fill one out today!

Increase Your Down Payment

Texas Auto Center is proud to offer down payments starting at just $500 down*, but if you are able to pay more, you can lower your monthly payments and increase your chances of getting approved. If you are able to afford a larger down payment, we say go for it!
