Happy New Year All...
I am in the market of financing a new/used car.
My credit is deemed VERY POOR. My score is 517, which doesn't allow
me to work with the premiere finance lending companies.
Nonetheless I got approved with RoadLoans...
Voucher Indicated I was approved for $18,500 with 1200 down.
I goto to the approved dealership with my documents and loan packet only to get
The run around. The car I had done shopping on had suddenly increased
In price by 3400.00 bc I was working with Roadlaons.
Another dealership told me I would be responsible to market fees bc
They would not pay it and lose money for me to drive a car.
I feel as if my options are limited so have decided to let the loan with RoadLoans
Expire but will re apply when I reach my down payment goal. I am saving for a much larger down payment.
Why was this happening and if I goto the dealer with $8K as my new down payment will I have these
Problems.

Welcome to CreditBoards! We hope that you find what you're looking for here.

Some helpful tips:

  • Your post may not get a reply right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If it falls off of the first page, feel free
    to reply to your post yourself, with the word *bump* in the text. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the board.
  • If you haven't yet, take a peek at out Newbies Section.
    Everything that you need to know is in that forum, for the most part! It's a lot of reading, we know, but this credit stuff can have a steep learning curve. In no time, you'll be posting like the pros!
  • If you find that someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button at the bottom of every post - that will ensure that a moderator or admin looks at the post and decides if it is against the TOS.
  • Off -topic posts should go in the General Forum.

Again, welcome to the CreditBoards family!

Carmax accepts roadloans., and doesnt mark up the price of the cars because of the fees.

Didn't know that... However CarMax doesn't show to be an approved dealer of Roadloans.

Indeed they are. Also on Carmax cars they base the LTV on the carmax price, instead of book value... (This is what I was told by a roadloans rep).

Roadloans = Santander

The Roadloans check is not worth it's face value. Dealer's F&I department should be able to get you a better approval.

$8,000 buys a pretty nice car if you go private party. Go look what you can get for $8k on Craigslist before you go shopping at dealerships. If you go PP, then no dealership markup/fees/subprime finance charges. let your credit improve over time than trade in for what you really want w/o having to resort to subprime financing.

agreed. Just buy an $8k car and repair your credit, then get a loan with a reputable company.

IT costs the dealership $ to use the Roadloans deal. I am a Roadloans/Santander customer - no one else would touch me and I HAD to finance a car. Is there a CarMax near you? As far as I now, they're the only ones that will take Roadloans and will NOT mark up the car cost.

For what its worth, I have had no problems so far except that I would still like to refinance for a better rate. As it is, I'm sending extra $ as often as possible.

Carmax don't need to mark up the price to cover a bank fee. They charge too much for their used vehicles anyways and have a special arrangement with these subprime companies.

In our area Carmax isn't asking any more for thier cars than other local dealers. They all ask retail book value or more. Agreed, too expensive either way.

Yes, But CarMax has a no-negotiation policy, which is part of their reputation that they advertise.

Traditional dealer may ask the same price or similar to CarMax, but they will probably negotiate, whereas CarMax is a no-go.
