Let’s go over the basics of financing a car:

What is Car Repair Financing?

Car repair financing is usually a personal loan that helps make your repairs more affordable. While the terms will vary from lender to lender, a secured loan uses a vehicle’s title as collateral. Additionally, you will generally need a credit check before you can get your loan from a financial dealer. So if it’s been a long time since your last credit score check, you might want to ask for a report to see where you stand. Keep in mind that many service warranty programs cover common repairs and maintenance, so double check your fine print on:

  • New car warranties
  • Extended warranties
  • Used car warranties
  • Collision insurance

Can I Benefit from Car Repair Financing? 

Sometimes it’s better to opt for car repair financing, but sometimes it’s easier just to get a new car altogether. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • How much is my car worth right now?
  • What would it cost to buy a new or used vehicle?
  • How much would it cost to make the necessary repairs?

Crunching the numbers may reveal an easy decision, so it’s worth the time to investigate!

What About Financing with Bad Credit? 

When it comes to car repair financing, bad credit is not a dealbreaker at all. While a flexible financial dealer can easily accommodate someone with poor credit, there are a few drawbacks to keep in mind. You’ll probably need to pay a higher-than-average interest rate in order to secure your loan. So once again, ask yourself whether it’s most cost-effective to make the repairs needed or if it’s time to start fresh with another vehicle.
