Not an app but a question

Recommended Posts

6 months time on job, approximately 1200 monthly income and 350 monthly in rent. Credit score around 500. No way I am getting a car loan I am guessing. Just wanted to ask anyway. Transmission on my van is going out and it will cost almost 2000 to fix. With the other problems the van is having I would rather get a new(er) vehicle than try to get this one fixed. I am going to hope the van lasts till I can save, but an advice is appreciated!

On behalf of CreditBoards Admin, MarvBear would like to extend a sincere and warm welcome to the Automotive Forum. We have an Automotive FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section that should prove to be very helpful in your automotive knowledge quest.In the Reading and Resource Section of this forum, which is a read only forum, you can look up information regarding Sales Tax by State, Lemon Laws by State, along with a number of industry specific topics very relevant from the dealership's perspective.In the main section of this forum, there are two pinned topics both of which are read only topics. The first concerns Bank and Credit Union rates and tiers. You might find this useful in predicting an interest rate on your next vehicle purchase. The second is a general purpose credit application that you can use to get an idea if you might qualify for an automotive product loan based on an insider's perspective of the information you provide.You, as a consumer, have a unique advantage to "pick my brain"as I have been in the Automotive Industry since 1972. I will endeavor my utmost to give you up to the minute information and explain any insider workings you may question.Due to time constraints on my part, I may not always be available to answer your question right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If some extended time goes by without a reply, feel free to reply to your own post by typing the word *bump*. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the forum where it is more easily seen.We make every effort to maintain a warm and friendly, and particularly non-judgmental attitude here on CreditBoards. If you find someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button located at the bottom of every post-that will ensure that either I or another moderator or Admin looks at the post and decides if it is against our TOS.Off-topic posts should go in the General Forum. And if you are a credit newbie, take a glance at our Newbies Section.Come get your new keys!HAPPY car.jpg MOTORINGCB Admin: LKH, Pam, radi8, breezeCB Mods: CargoJon, Chris in CA, cotterpin, CramItCCCAs, Cristy, fla-tan, hardpull, MarvBear, pryan67, psp, stealthmidget, Stryker, yourguide, ZeRo_C0oLForum Leads: Brian B The Loan Professor, cedski, DallasLoanGuy, four20nik, hoapres, hurricanesfans27, Lighthouse84, Linx04, Neen, orangecrush, Peekaboo, TeeSharice

That is what I was figuring. I hate my job (only 24-32 hours a week at minimum wage) however I can't find anything in my area that pays better. And I can't get a job that requires more of a commute without getting a better vehicle. It's a terrible cycle.

Some tertiary lenders will grant a loan, however the downpayment will be high along with the APR. Otherwise I would say no.
