Frequently Asked Questions
At RightWay, we believe you deserve a quality vehicle regardless of your credit or financial situation. We’re also committed to making the process of buying that vehicle as easy as possible. Below is a list of frequently asked questions to help you get started.
Credit Approval Questions
Yes, of course! RightWay has a variety of bank and credit union lender options available with interest rates as low as 2.99%, with approved credit.
Yes, that’s our specialty! RightWay dealerships are truly the auto credit experts and help customers with bad credit drive away in nicer, newer vehicles every day.
Yes! If you don’t have an established credit history yet, RightWay can still help you get approved to buy a new vehicle.
First, congratulations on embarking on your first car buying journey! And second, yes, you can get approved at RightWay!
Yes, we do it every day! We understand past circumstances may have caused you to miss payments in the past, but we won’t let that stop you from getting a new car.
Yes, a bankruptcy doesn’t exclude you from purchasing a vehicle from us. We work directly with lenders that specialize in approving customers with bankruptcies.
Yes, but only if you fill out a credit application. And don’t worry! Your credit report and score aren’t the only factors our lenders take into consideration during the approval process. Your income, time on the job, down payment, vehicle, and other factors can work in your favor if you have a less than perfect credit score.
We work hard to get you a low-down payment you can afford, and many of our customers get approved for $0 down. We customize our down payments per vehicle and per customer; it ultimately depends on lender requirements, customer credit worthiness, and the vehicle being purchased.
RightWay is focused on getting you a low payment you can actually afford. We want you to still be able to pay your rent, bills, and other living expenses. Your monthly payment ultimately depends on the vehicle you buy, how much money you put down, and the terms of the loan you get approved for. But rest assured, it will be affordable.
We work hard to get you approved at a competitive, low interest rate. Many of our customers get approved for 2.99% APR! Your interest rate ultimately depends on the current market rates, the vehicle you buy, and your credit worthiness.
No, we are just the car dealership and work with over 30 outside banks. This allows us to prioritize getting you approved for the vehicle you deserve.
Yes! For your convenience, we are partnered directly with many banks and local credit unions to get you approved without ever leaving the dealership. We also have 30+ lenders and can often get you approved with another lender at a better rate than your own bank or credit union. You win when banks compete for your business!
No, but we do work with lenders that offer just as aggressive approvals to earn your business! Whereas, buy here pay here dealerships are small car lots that don’t work with outside banks or credit unions and instead lend you money directly. You then have to visit the dealership weekly to make payments in person. Many buy here pay here dealerships do not inspect their vehicles, do not offer warranties, sell older vehicles, and do not report your payments to major credit bureaus.
RightWay offers a much better experience than the typical buy here pay here dealership. All of our vehicles pass a stringent 70-point safety inspection, include a 6-month / 6,000-mile limited warranty, and two years of oil changes at no cost to you. We also have relationships with 30+ lenders to get you approved regardless of your credit or financial situation.
Don’t get trapped with a buy here pay here dealership. Visit RightWay for a better car buying experience!
