Would the bank or the dealership give me a loan?
I'm a minor(17 years old) and would like to buy a new car. I have enough for a down payment of 7,500 for a car that costs 21,499. Obviously, I have no credit and am too young to get a loan on my own in New York State. If my dad cosigned, would I get the loan, or would I not because my dad has horrible credit(Bankruptcy). If not, what other things could I do to acquire a loan?
