  • you can get approved for a vehicle but your interest rate will be higher until you get it up. Just keep doing what you're doing. Go with the higher interest rate and just refinance after you get your score up. It doesn't really take that long to get the score up once you start making car payments. But it you miss one, it will go down just as fast. There are a lot of people right now with messed up credit for whatever're not the only one. GL!!

  • Pay cash for your car; it doesn't have to be pretty, it just has to be safe.
