Car Loans for Bad Credit
Credit Rebuilder Auto Loan Program
How Can a Credit Union Car Loan Help Rebuild Credit?
Most people agree: making regular loan payments on something, whether it’s a home loan, personal loan, or auto loan, is the best way to improve your credit. There’s just one problem: if you have a bad credit score, getting approved for those loans in the first place is challenging. When members ask us how to overcome this hurdle for a better financial future, we point them toward our Credit Rebuilder Auto Loan Program.
This option (which is one of several car loans available) offers a manageable payment plan and flexible terms to borrowers who need a new ride as they get their finances back on track.
