In case you thought it is difficult to get a loan when you are young...
I am 19. I got approved yesterday for a $10000 loan for a used mustang. I got 3.9% interest, which isn't bad if you credit history is 8 months long. So for anyone out there who needs advice, here's how I did it.
Got a cosigned loan on a $2000 car in July. Opened a Cap 1 secured card at the same time, with $300 limit. Opened a Discover secured card in November with 200 limit. Now it's March, and my fico is 720, and my credit Union approved me. Simple. Good luck. AND NEVER MISS PAYMENTS!
