trying to buy an 06 Rubicon

I filled out the credit app and gave them the information on my trade ins. Hopefully all goes well and I am driving my new Rubicon home on Saturday night. I will be trading in my 2000 Jeep Wrangler SE and a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica all wheel drive. I have a good credit rating but for some reason I have trouble getting approved for auto loans. I think the fact that I am trading in two vehicles and only buying one is going to help me get approved. This Jeep has 35,000 miles and it's a six speed manual. It's white with dark gray interior. The positive side to this is that it already has the bumper I wanted to buy for my current Jeep so I won't have to do that mod.

I would add pictures but this site won't allow pictures that big. I don't know how to make them smaller so I can post them.

Microsoft Office Picture Manager is the easiest way to resize pictures, and any computer with Microsoft Office should have it...


Good luck, and congrats!

Good Luck!!! I hope all goes well for you. It sounds like the almost exactly trade I made to get mine I have terrible credit and only traded in one vehicle. So its gotta happen for you.

I have a 680 and a 618 I'm not sure what my third credit score is but I was turned down for two auto loans before this a few months ago. They were for about five thousand dollars more and I was only trading in one of my cars so maybe this way I can get what I want.

thats not a good score fyi. But....... with those two trade in's you should be good because the loan value should be very low. Good luck!!!

Do you still owe on either vehicle? If not why not sell one outright and trade the other in? You could have a few k more if done this way. Alternatively you could sell both vehicles and probably finance a fairly small amount, although with that you risk going jeepless or carless... Also they do not only look at your credit score. Your debt to income ratio has a lot to do with it too. Most places I checked stay between 45-55% which is too much IMO.

I pay 560 a month for my debt. 400 is for my two car loans. So I will be at 160 + bills without them. I owe on them but not too much. I should have a little extra to use towards the jeep as a down payment after they are paid for.

Sell your cars on your own, the dealer is there to give you as little as possible for your trade-in(s) and get you to pay as much as possible on the vehicle your getting, that's just the way it works.
Don't be in a rush to get what ever is on the dealer lot, there will be more vehicles that match your needs/desires.

I work at a dealer so I know. I'm trying to sell them now but I also know how to get a decent deal out of them.

Your credit scores aren't good and I'm not surprised that you've had a hard time getting a loan. Do yourself a favor and sell one car and get your loans paid off, then save up for a nice downpayment or better yet pay cash. Paying interest sucks when you could instead keep that money for yourself.
