Brady Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Knows How to Get a Car with Bad Credit

  1. Determine how much you can afford to pay per month based on your budget. Use our payment calculator to help you see the big picture of what will go into your monthly payment.
  2. Make a bigger down payment if possible. Do you have a used car to trade? Value your trade with us before you start shopping. You might be pleasantly surprised.
  3. Try to clean up your credit report before applying for a loan. It’s not unusual for a credit report to contain errors. Start by checking your credit report for errors, and getting them fixed through a credit bureau.
  4. Be honest about what kind of car you should buy, and don’t get more than you need. This might not be the time to buy a new car with the latest technology. Shopping our affordable used cars near Hoover is a good place to start.
  5. Ask questions! When you apply for credit and when you negotiate the final price for your car, don’t be afraid to ask questions that can lead to a lower price.

Once you’ve completed these steps apply for financing online. You’ll get pre-approved and will know exactly what kind of budget you will be working with to take home a used Dodge Durango. From there, our staff will help you find a car at our dealership to fit that budget.
