Getting Approved with No Down Payment

Credit score of 700 or higher? Then you might not need to offer up a down payment. Unfortunately, it’s a little more difficult for applicants with bad credit. At this point, the Loan-to-Value ratio becomes a critical factor. Divide the the amount you want by the wholesale value of the vehicle being financed. This is the LTV.

Amount Borrowed Vehicle Value LTV
$10,000 $15,000 67%
$12,000 $15,000 80%
$17,500 $22,000 79%

The lenders who approve bad credit typically prefer lower LTV ratios, because these mean less risk. That said, we get a lot of applicants financed anyway.

Submit your application. We’ll match you with a dealer or lender willing to offer you a loan, zero down payment necessary.
