The dealerships in Rhode Island we work with have helped car buyers with no down payment or little money down in the past. However, most bad credit lenders require borrowers to have a down payment.
Typically, the down payment requirement for subprime lenders is $1,000 or 10 percent of the vehicle's selling price, whichever is less. Lenders want you to have a down payment because it shows you're committed to paying back the loan by putting your own money on the line. Not only can having a down payment help you get approved, it can save you money in the long run and reduce the risk of owing more on the loan than the car is worth.
If you want an auto loan with no money down in Rhode Island, you can work to improve your credit score before applying or you can trade in your old car if it's paid off or has equity. Car dealers are happy to let you apply your trade-in's value toward your down payment.
When you default on your car loan, the lender can take action and repossess the vehicle. Being visited by the repo man, can be a scary thought, but you can prevent repossession by reaching out to your lender. Discussing what you can do with them to prevent defaulting before it happens removes the stress and fear of having your car repossessed.
If your car does end up repossessed, note that the repo will be listed on your credit report for up to seven years. This can hit your credit score pretty hard, and makes getting financed difficult if you need a car. The good news is it's not impossible to find financing. You just need to know where to look.
