Whether you're interested in buying a new Ford vehicle or a used car, truck, or SUV, it can seem like your car shopping experience is over before it begins if you have poor credit. However, at Mangold Ford, we've been helping Eureka, IL drivers with less-than-perfect credit to get competitive deals on auto financing for years now, and we've got some great tips to help you get the most out of shopping for your next ride.

Now, there's a lot you can do even before getting to our Eureka, IL dealership to put yourself on a better credit footing before financing your next car. For example, you can pay off outstanding debts and account balances, or get a copy of your credit report and dispute any items that you feel might have been reported in error. This can greatly improve your chances of getting an affordable financing offer for your next car.

Now, a lot of credit experts will tell you to shop around to multiple lenders and be ready to accept a shorter term loan that might involve higher monthly payments. But with our years of expertise in bad credit auto financing here at Mangold Ford, we're happy to help you work out an auto financing plan that works best for you. Just take some time to sit down with our finance team to explore your financing options, and we think you'll find attractive options for your budget.

Better still, there's no better time to shop than right now! With tax season upon us once again, you may just have an extra chunk of change in your pocket from your tax return that'll make a great down payment on one of our pre-owned vehicles. So, feel free to reach out to our team today to learn more about how you can finance a car at our Eureka, IL dealership even with less than perfect credit.
