Will Southgate Volkswagen work with me?
Our Finance Advisers have been able to set people up with the vehicle they need, no matter what the credit situation might be. You can qualify for bad-credit vehicle financing in Edmonton even if you suffer from:
I fit into one of the categories above–what should I do?
Don’t fret; you’re one of many Canadians who also suffer credit woes. To improve your credit, start by getting reports from one of the Canadian reporting agencies, Equifax or TransUnion. This will help you figure out what exactly is impairing your credit. Credit reports may contain inaccuracies you can correct to help get your credit back to normal. Take these credit reports to your bank or credit union and get their opinion on their accuracy. On your reports, you’ll also see your credit score, and the higher it is, the more likely you’ll be able to obtain credit and/or secure a lower interest rate. If you have a lot of debt, then consider paying that off before you finance a vehicle.
In fact, your bank or credit union is an excellent place to get an opinion about your credit and financing a vehicle. They can also give you a quote for financing, but keep in mind that these quotes are non-negotiable. With a lender like Southgate Volkswagen, we negotiate with multiple banks on your behalf, so quite often we can beat your bank’s offer.
When it comes to the long term, paying down high balances and paying on time will go a long way to improving your credit. We recommend not making dramatic credit changes and not closing old accounts. Taking out a loan and repaying it will help a lot too! For example, taking out a student loan is great because the interest on that loan will be low, and you’ll get plenty of time to pay it off. Car loans are wonderful too because they’re over a long period, giving you a lot of time to impress your lender, and then one day you’ll own a vehicle!
How does financing a vehicle work and help with bad credit?

Southgate Volkswagen has a variety of offers for bad-credit vehicle financing in Edmonton, and our offers have reasonable interest rates too.
When you finance a vehicle, as you make regular payments toward the cost of the loan you took out, the lender and financial institution involved take notice. You’ll eventually earn their trust, your credit rating will increase, and then they’ll be much more willing to work with you in the future!
