Bad credit can affect your ability to get a car loan
or refinance an existing one. Refinancing auto
loans with bad credit is possible in the same way
as with mortgage refinance. At the same time, you
can save some money. However, in order to be
able to refinance your loan, you will need to meet
certain conditions. Usually they have to do with
the state of your car, your history with the lender,
and your financial situation. If the car is relatively
new, say less than five years old then this will
help your refinancing. Likewise, if you are not in
any way involved in some sort of dispute or other
default with your current lender it would also help
you refinancing your car loan. And you have to be
able to show that you have less money than the
value of your car.

There are a few more things you need to know before you make the decision
to refinance your car loan The first thing is that you will be terminating the
original contract and make a new one

The new lender will pay off the first lender and you will pay the new one under
the terms of the new contract Some of the benefits in exchanging the old for
the new contract are a lower interest rate, a longer period to pay off the loan or
simply a little bit of time off from payments, which would probably help you get
back on your feet

Such deal might be very good if you purchased a car and then you lost your
job and found another one with a lower payment, which affected your credit
score It is also suitable if the original interest rates are not affordable and you
would like to extent the time of your loan in exchange for a lower instalment or
a lower interest rate

Sometimes, you could just like to pay more and faster in order to own your car
in a shorter time when your finances allow you to do so It is also possible to
get refinancing of your car loan even if you have been late with the payments
of a few instalments, but have already recovered and are currently respecting
the original payment schedule

Late payments usually influence your credit score, but if you are able to
demonstrate that you are not in default, several companies will give you the
opportunity to refinance your car with the right terms for you However, you
have to make sure that the collateral is not in danger of repossession

And finally, you also have to make sure that the value of your car is higher
than your current finances

The estimation of your car can be done by several websites, if you provide
them with all the information necessary for the estimation, such as the year,
the brand, the mileage, the model and the condition

They will tell you what information they need in order to make the estimate
before you decide to refinance your car loan
