Do You Have Less-than-Perfect Credit in West Springfield? Worried About a Bad Credit Car Loan? Balise Mazda is Here to Help
At Balise Mazda, we pride ourselves on offering true financing solutions in West Springfield for drivers of all types. While some car dealers in Chicopee, Westfield, Hartford, and Manchester CT boast about guaranteeing financing, they leave out the tiny detail that they only guarantee loans to shoppers with perfect or near-perfect credit! And that leaves a large portion of Massachusetts and Connecticut drivers out in the cold for the financing needs.
Balise Mazda is different.
We don’t blame drivers with bad or no credit for their situation — a large number of people who struggle with credit have been burdened with student loans, or medical bills, or factors that were largely out of their control. Rather than making it harder for you to get into a great new or new-to-you vehicle, we attempt to streamline the process so you can start building a positive credit history now.
How is Balise Mazda able to help local drivers get financing, even with poor credit, no credit, or thin credit?
We work with a variety of banks, credit unions, and lenders in Massachusetts and across the country to be able to help you find a financing solution that works. Sometimes the best rates and offers can come through setting up payments with a small local lender; other times, big national lenders are more willing to take on your request; and often, Mazda Financial is willing to step in and lend a hand to help you get approved for a lease or loan.
FAQ About Applying for/Qualifying for Financing With Bad or No Credit
- Can I qualify for a car loan with bad credit? Absolutely–bad credit is a small hurdle in the financing world, but it is by no means a roadblock. We’ll work with you to see what your situation looks like, and what you can afford.
- Can I qualify for a car loan with no credit? No credit doesn’t mean bad credit; in fact, it can sometimes be easier to qualify for financing with no credit than it is with bad credit. Everyone needs to start somewhere, so start at Balise Mazda! We’ll help you get started right, with affordable payments on an auto loan or a Mazda lease.
- Will applying for a loan make my bad credit worse? Your credit score will only drop noticeably if you get a loan and do not pay on time; for many drivers who go through the credit pre-approval process at Balise Mazda, they actually see their credit score improve over the term!
- Will my rates be higher because of my credit history? Possibly–unfortunately, a low credit score often translates to higher rates because it’s a larger responsibility for the lender to take on. However, Balise Mazda works hard to facilitate strong relationships with our lenders, and we can work to negotiate a low APR on your behalf. You might get financing rates that are considerably lower than expected.
- I’ve never applied for a loan before–can I get approval? We love working with first-time buyers. We believe that everyone needs a hand when first breaking into the financing and auto loan world, and we’re here to help.
- Can I afford payments on the car I want? That depends on your individual budget, and on a variety of factors including rates, insurance, model, down payment, and length of term; explore our payment calculator to estimate what your monthly payments might be on a card loan. We can help you customize these figures to make it work.
- How do I start the process? You can skip ahead to our online pre-approval process if you’re ready to get started. But if you have questions about your credit, about financing, or about your unique options, we encourage you to contact us online as soon as possible. You might be surprised what you could be approved for!
