What Credit Score Do you Need to Buy a Car?

Higher scores mean better rates, but people with poor credit also have options

If you’re planning to buy a new car, you’ll most likely need an auto loan to help pay for it. With the average cost of a new vehicle exceeding $47,000 today, the great majority of buyers in the United States do.  Whether you apply for a loan through the dealership or at a bank, the lender will run a credit check on you as part of the process. Here’s what credit score you’ll need to be approved for a car loan—and what you can do if your credit is less than perfect.
