Credit issues? Five winning ways to fast auto financing

Bad credit* is at least a temporary fact of life for many people.

But life goes on, work goes on, as does the need for a vehicle to get you where you need to go. For most people with bad credit, that means having to look hard for good auto finance options.

*“Bad” or “Poor” credit generally is considered a FICO score around 600 and below by sources including the Consumer Federation of America and National Credit Reporting Association (reported by the Associated Press),,, Investopedia, and others. The Congressional Budget Office identifies a FICO score of 620 as the “cutoff” for prime loans. FICO scores are not the sole factor in lending decisions by Santander Consumer USA and RoadLoans.
