Can I get a car loan after a repossession?

Yes, at Legacy Auto Credit we understand that a repossession is usually the result of an uncontrollable event or situation. Many of our clients have had a previous repossession or will be returning their vehicle to the bank when filing a bankruptcy or consumer proposal.

Will this help me build my credit?

Yes, if you make your payments on time.  Legacy Auto Credit reports your payment history to Equifax monthly.  Over time with on time payments your score will increase.

What is In-House Financing/Leasing?

At Legacy Auto Credit we provide In-House Financing/Leasing.  This means that we provide the funds and then you pay us back.  We can look at your credit situation on a personal level and determine your ability to make payments even if you have bad credit.  We make the final decision on the approval which results in more approvals and better rates.  Our interest rates for Consumer Proposal and Bankruptcy customers start at 7.99% oac on new cars.

What if I have been turned down before?

We see many people that have been previously turned down due to several reasons which have included, poor payment history, not enough time on the job, too much debt and non-garnishable income.   With our In-House program we look at your income, expenses and debts that would be causing the turn downs and provide you with solutions to get you driving and rebuilding your credit.

If I have filed a bankruptcy or consumer proposal, can I still qualify?

Yes, at Legacy Auto Credit our In-House program was created for bankruptcy and consumer proposal customers.  If you are about to file or have already filed and are not discharged, you can still qualify for our low rate in-house program.  We work with several trustees who see that we truly offer low rates and want you to succeed in rebuilding your credit.  If you are about to file we will work with you to secure a vehicle before filing so that you can be confident in returning your current vehicle that has too much negative equity, has too high of payment or doesn’t suite your needs anymore.  We also report your payments to Equifax which will help re-establish your credit score.
