Buy Here Pay Here Frequently Asked Questions


We know you need a car to get to work, drive your kids around and do the million other things that people have to get done in a day that are not within walking distance. Many times, people who are inquiring about our Buy Here Pay Here program are new to trying to get a car with challenged credit. They may have been told by a friend or family member that getting a vehicle loan is impossible without good credit. Eventually, someone tells them the only way they can purchase a vehicle is if they find a car dealership that offers “Buy Here Pay Here”. The large majority of customers that call our dealership looking to apply for our Buy Here Pay Here program are unaware that they are eligible for traditional sub-prime financing. Almost anyone, regardless of credit is eligible for special financing. Unless you are unable to verify your income, we can get you an auto loan through one of our sub-prime lending companies. Buy Here Pay Here is only for those who cannot verify income, or provide other types of verification for a regular special financing loan.

Since most of our Buy Here Pay Here customers are not familiar with the process, they have plenty of pre-conceived ideas about how auto financing works and we end up getting pretty much the same questions. Here are the most frequently asked questions about the Buy Here Pay Here program…

 

How much do I need for a down payment?

That depends. Many of our customers don’t realize that our special financing programs are available to those with bad credit or no credit. Almost all of our customers are eligible for one of our guaranteed financing programs and for those programs, the down payment can be as low as $500.00 plus tax and tags. If you are not eligible for one of our bad credit financing programs, the down payment for a Buy Here Pay Here depends on the cost of the car. Most are half down.

 

How much per month?

We do our best to work with potential buyers and fit our payment into your budget. Payments are on average $250.00 per month. Some are higher and some are lower. It depends on how much of a car you want and the length of your loan.

Buy Here Pay Here Explained

         Buy Here Pay Here consumers aren't necessarily in any worse credit situations than a Special Financing customer but instead have difficulty with the added verification required by bad credit loans. Buy Here Pay Here customers may have difficulty verifying income due to self-employment or a lack of income entirely. Since Special Financing lenders who accept no credit or bad credit customers require income verification and proof of ability to pay, consumers without the ability to meet minimum income or verification requirements could be left without a vehicle. This is where Buy Here Pay Here can be a benefit to consumers. Buy Here Pay Here loans are more lax with requirements due to the fact that it is the dealership itself that is funding the loan. The dealership is loaning the money, which is why you buy the vehicle and will make your payments at the dealership, hence the program name "Buy Here and Pay Here". If you are a consumer who has unverifiable income, problems with licensing, or are unemployed, Buy Here Pay Here may be your only option and it can be a Godsend to those who are just looking for a chance to rebuild their credit and get back on track.

          There are negatives to Buy Here Pay Here or Rent to Own programs just like any other sub-prime lending programs since the company or dealership is assuming additional risk by loaning vehicles to customers that do not have a good payment history. You will likely have a higher interest rate or need more money down than a customer with good credit and payment history, but you will be able to get a vehicle.

          Call your local dealership that offers the program. If you live in Pittsburgh or surrounding areas, come and check out Used Car World! We partner with multiple lending programs and also have the Buy Here Pay Here program. We have a huge inventory of cars and trucks and are ready to give you a second chance!

I Have Bad Credit, Can I Choose Any Car?

What kind of car can I get?

The kind of car you can get is only limited by your financial situation and how much of a down payment you want to make. Dealerships like ours that work with all kinds of credit situations care more about your financial situation than your credit score. How much of a payment will your income allow you to make? How much can you afford to put down? The answers to these questions will determine the type of car you will be able to purchase. Remember, lenders want you to purchase a quality automobile you want just as much as one you can afford. None of our lenders will want you in contract with them on a cheap car that’s unreliable. Very few people will continue to pay their auto loan if there car isn’t running. Borrowers who are driving a car that they like and can afford are much more likely to pay their loan without problem. Bad credit lenders, just like regular lenders want what you want. They want their borrowers driving reliable vehicles that their customer’s like.

Can I choose from any car, or are there only certain cars that work with bad credit programs?
While there are some dealerships that use certain cars for specific programs, we do not. All of our cars except for those listed as “cash only” specials are available for our lending programs. You can choose from any of our cars just like a cash customer can. Your choice is only limited by your financial situation and how much you want to put down. Even if you are unable to get the exact car you want, we go out of our way to find a car that you love and can afford.

Fill out a guaranteed financing application. We can get anyone financed. Even you!
