  • Get your credit reports and credit scores
In the era of frequent identity theft, we should all check our credit reports and scores on a regular basis.
Check it every six months to make sure no errors have arisen. Automotive lenders are going to look
more closely at your history with auto loans than at other details, so check to see what your
report says in advance of applying.
  • Put together a down payment
Try to operate on a cash-only basis for a year after a bankruptcy. A sizable down payment demonstrates
less risk for the lender. If you do default, they do have your vehicle as collateral. If your need for a
vehicle and a bankruptcy auto loan is more urgent than the cash you have on hand, trade in your current vehicle to loosen up extra
funds toward the down payment.
  • Shop around
Limit your car shopping to one day. It reduces the number of credit inquiries, too many of which can
impact your credit score. Gather your pay stubs and your printed credit report. Obtaining pre-approval
before you visit a dealership is also a terrific idea. If your bankruptcy was more recent, your loan rate
will likely be higher. But if you walk in with an existing deal in hand, many dealerships will try to match
  • Avoid the worst loans
Be very careful when choosing a lender. Too many individuals with poor credit that are looking for subprime auto loans can become
victims of predatory loans. Watch out for hidden costs and make sure at the outset that the monthly
payments are comfortable for you. Defaulting too soon after a bankruptcy, your range of options is
  • Pay on time
Regular car payments are an excellent way to rebuild credit with fair speed after a bankruptcy. If you're
on time each and every month, it raises your credit score more quickly than if you didn't borrow money
for a car.
  • Refinance
After six to twelve months of regular payments, examine your credit rating. There may already be visible
improvements to your score. You can then try to re-finance the loan to get a lower (and even more
manageable) interest rate. A lowered interest rate within that time frame is not guaranteed, of course.
Exercise caution and look forward to the eventual benefits of restored credit.

    Privacy Statement

    As a valued customer, we want to ensure that your private information is kept private and only shared with those companies that are authorized by yourself or that are allowed or required by law. This document explains our privacy policy, gives you reasons why we ask for the type of information we do, and if we do reserve a right to share information with non-affiliated third parties, lets you "opt-out" of our reservation to do so. Please take a moment to read this entire policy.

    Collection of Information
    The purchase of a motor vehicle requires considerable accumulation of non-public personal information. For example, if we sell or lease you a vehicle—extending credit to you at your request—we will receive information from you in order to determine your creditworthiness. We may also obtain information from a credit reporting agency. We may also obtain information from third parties such as employers, references and insurance companies.

    Some of the information we obtain from you may be required by provincial or federal agencies, such as the Department of Motor Vehicles or the Canada Revenue Agency. This information may be required even if you were to pay cash for your vehicle. Examples would be a driver's license or social security number.

    Protecting Your Information
    We safeguard nonpublic personal information according to established industry standards and procedures. We maintain physical and electronic safeguards that comply with provincial and federal law. We restrict access to non-public personal information about you to those employees and outside contractors who need to know the information to provide goods or services to you. We prohibit our employees and agents from giving information about you to anyone in a manner that would violate any applicable law or our privacy policy.

    Information Sharing
    Unless we have indicated our desire to share your non-public personal information with non-affiliated third parties (by checking the box in the section below), we share information:

    A) For everyday business purposes, such as to process transactions, maintain account(s), to respond to court orders and legal investigations, or to report to credit bureaus.

    B) For the purposes of processing a sale or lease transaction at your request or authorization, such as submitting information to third party financial institutions that may be requested to take an assignment of the contract, or verifying insurance coverage information.

    C) When using outside service providers to help us provide you with products and services. Before providing information to our service providers, we enter into contractual agreements prohibiting them from disclosing or using the information other than for the purpose for which it was disclosed.

    D) With "Affiliated" companies. Companies that are affiliated with us include any company that controls us, any company that we control, or any company under common control with us.
