In short, an auto loan can be a big help in re-establishing your credit. Your Credit Bureau Report is a snapshot of your credit history, and is looked at by banks before they give out loans. If the activity on your credit report shows missed payments, defaulting on a loan, or a bankruptcy, big banks may become wary of lending.
An auto loan makes a big impression on a credit report, so one of the best ways to overcome a bad credit history is by taking out an auto loan and paying it on time. Because of our strong partnerships with lenders, we can get you approved for an auto loan and give you the opportunity to re-establish your credit.

Everyone's interest rate is going to be different. Interest rates are dependent on a number of factors including your credit history, the amount - if any - you put towards a downpayment, the value of your trade (if you have one), and the length of your borrowing term.
