Cargurus is a listing /ad site, so all payments have to go through the dealer or seller. I would advise again buying a car with bad credit. Your interest rates will be too high.

All financed products are subject to a credit approval....period. If you are in need of a vehicle but feel your credit may be shaky I would advise you to get Pre-qualified at your local bank if possible. That way you find out if you are able to actually buy a vehicle before going out and having several dealers pull your credit and further hurt your situation. Here is something to consider as well, if you go to a larger and reputable dealership they do have more "buying power" than small independent dealerships and most often can offer you a way into a vehicle. Even if the Interest Rate is a little higher than expected, once you start payments, as long as you maintain them and do not miss any, it will help you rebuild your credit....where as doing nothing will keep you right where you are now. If you have questions feel free to reacj out to me personally. JASON DENSON INTERNET MANAGER LARRY MILLER USED CAR SUPERMARKET 208-947-6100 OFFICE
