Buying a new car should be an exciting time at any point in your life. There’s nothing like that new car smell to make you want to drive to work, hit the country road, or venture into the city for some fun and food. But when paying for a car is a struggle, it can be a time of great anxiety and worry. Even if you have bad credit or no credit, there are options for paying for a car that many popular dealerships are getting on board with: it’s important that everyone should be able to drive the car they want, or at the very least, drive a car they can afford. Here are some ways you can finance your next car, so you don’t have to worry about being able to afford the car you want.

Get a Cosigner

If affording a car seems out of your reach, or if you have poor credit, you can get a cosigner to take on some responsibility for the loan. Financing companies will often let people do this if they don’t have great credit or if they don’t make enough money on paper to be able to afford the car. Often, it is just a matter of having someone cosign for the loan you are getting. Many people can make their payments just fine, but in the event they cannot, an Ontario Bankruptcy Trustee can help determine if bankruptcy is the right choice for them. Keep in mind that any cosigner will be responsible for payments as well, so you’ll need to talk about that when you approach someone to cosign a car loan.

Make Smaller Payments Over a Longer Period of Time

Some finance companies will allow people to take out car loans for up to 8 or 9 years now. Before, car loans were capped at five years or less, but finance companies realize that many people cannot afford those higher monthly payments and need to have more manageable payments. A longer loan term allows more people to get access to a car loan, and it keeps the payments smaller. You can expect to pay a bit more interest in some cases, but if you watch the dealerships for deals, you can sometimes get 1% or 2% financing on a longer loan.

Buy a Used Car

If owning a new car is just beyond your reach, there are lots of options in the used car department. Used car loans typically have higher interest, which is why they are easier to obtain. There is typically a vast selection of pre-owned vehicles to choose from in most local areas. Many used cars are rarely used as so many people are trading in cars for reasons beyond the age or mileage on the car. For example, I have a friend who bought a V8 convertible car and within a year traded it in for something with less power. The car had so much power; it was too hard for her to drive.That car sat in her driveway because she couldn’t drive it, so someone got a good deal on a “used” convertible that week.
