So, after months of searching, I found my IDEAL wrangler... $9200. 2001. Green, hard top, cruise control, low mileage...perfect. No problem. I can make a down payment of $4500, take out a loan for $5k, sell my Explorer, pay most of the loan off, everyone is happy....
The economy sucks.
I got turned down for the loan due to my "lack of credit history", even with a cosigner.
It's absolute CRAP. How is it that my comrades were able to take out $50,000 in student loans as an 18 year old with "no credit" - but as a self-employed college graduate I can't even take out one measly $5,000 loan that I WILL be able to pay off in under 2 years?
Anyone else have similar issues?!
