Tips

The first and most important thing to accomplish before you begin your hunt is to establish a realistic budget. To do this, take into account your rent, bills, and leisure expenditures. Then, whatever money you have left over can be put toward your monthly rate. After that, you need to take into account what your transportation needs are. If you are constantly making long trips down the interstate, then consider putting yourself in the driver’s seat of a compact car to give you the utmost in fuel efficiency. Once that is figured out, you can prioritize your wants and needs by researching vehicles that are currently on the market. We make this a simple task when you navigate to our inventory page. Then, all that’s left to do is take a few test drives at Car Credit Center!

In-House Financing

If you have recently graduated or haven’t had the ability to create a formidable credit score, then you are susceptible to being turned away by banks and lenders. That is, until you take advantage of our in-house financing at Car Credit Center! We guarantee that you will receive approval because we own the finance company. This means we are able to say yes to whoever we choose, and since we have a high rate of doing so, you will be able to receive your go-ahead in a few simple steps. All that’s required is for you to head over to our Get Pre-Approved form to let us know about your current employment and proof of income. Then, you can finalize the details, and we will get back to you almost immediately with your results.

Vehicles

Since you are in a position where you will be able to purchase your first vehicle at Car Credit Center, let’s get the research process started today! Just double-click the Inventory dropdown to be sent to a page where you can begin educating yourself on what vehicles we have in stock. Then, you can narrow your viewing down by using the year, make, and model filters to find something that pertains to your interests. After that, you can look through the photos, read the short paragraph about the vehicle, and request more information if you think you have found something that works for you. If you still can’t decide between two autos, use the Compare tool to see who comes out on top!

This was my first time buying a car and I was extremely nervous. After doing my research online for 2 months, I decided to go to Car Credit Center to browse used cars. On the first day I went, the team was extremely helpful and were not pushy sales people. They were understand and really took the time to make me feel welcomed. They helped me to find the two cars I liked. After, I went home, did some more research and went back to purchase they Hyundai I wanted. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommended anyone in the Chicagoland area looking for a used car to check our Car Credit Center.
