Auto Loans & Bad Credit
The Truth About Bad Credit Auto Loans
Bluesky Auto Finance is not a lender nor do we offer auto loans. In fact, the majority of the websites you see on the internet that claim to help people with bad credit don’t either. Many of them are misleading and some quite frankly fall within the boundaries of deceptive trade practices.
Got your attention? Read on.
The truth is, most banks and credit unions don’t provide auto loans for people with bad credit either – at least not traditional lenders. So if all of this is true, who does? The auto lending industry is comprised of captive auto finance companies, banks and independent auto finance lenders. Although some banks and captives offer programs for the credit impaired, most of the sub-prime paper is originated by the independents through relationships they have with car dealers. This is known as indirect lending. In other words, a consumer receives financing from an auto finance company indirectly through a dealer.
Even before the 2008 credit crisis, there were few places for people with bad credit to apply and get approved for car financing. Think about it, when’s the last time you saw a financial institution that offered bad credit auto loans? That’s because most of these lenders capture business indirectly through car dealers rather than directly with the consumer. The catch is, not all auto dealers have the expertise, inventory or lender relationships to help people get a car loan.
This is where Bluesky Auto Finance comes in! We’ve identified and integrated with our own network of lenders and auto dealers that specialize in this niche.
