Can't get approved for a loan.. suggestions?

So my tesla is ready for pick up, but I just got a call saying that I can't get approved and I would need a co signer. I am a year out of college working as a software developer making 80K living at my parents still so I have no expenses so a tesla is the perfect toy to buy, especially since I have so many ideas for apps to make!

Anyway my credit score is good, but the banks say my credit history isn't long enough. And I bought my current car for 20K cash a few years ago, which I now regret for my credit. Basically they said that the only way I could get this car is if I came up with enough cash to buy it, however that would not help my credit at all and that is one of the reasons I want to get this car. Would anyone have any suggestions what I can do? A co signer is out of the question since I make more than anyone else in my family...

Any advice would be nice! thanks!

yes let us know

set up my penfed account today, even though im not looking to buy till end of year. I just did the basic savings account is that all you need or do you have to establish checking account as well ?

I think you have to donate $15 to one of their 2 military charities. PenFed stands for Pentagon Federal Credit Union.

Well there is nothing wrong living with parents provided you have a good goal. For example, I'd be fine with my kid making even $200K and living with me provided he a) does not bother me and b) *saving* the money. I certainly wouldn't want him/her to take advantage of me and buy $100K car. But save money to, say, start their own business or use spare money and finance side startup work? Perhaps hiring someone to help you implement those apps you are thinking of? That would be fine with me.

So what's the latest Alex? Just curious. Thanks for sharing.

Seems to be a cultural thing. I would never have come up with the idea to put myself one year salary in debt for a car in my first years at a job. And those recommendations with credit cards, etc. The next bubble the US will entertain the world with bursting is the credit cards debt that can't be paid (then transferred to all words tax payers to save the banking system), in addition to the whole country being officially unable to pay their bills from Thursday (sorry, could not resist).

Why don't you wait until you can actually afford a car like the MS and then you won't have any issue. Sorry for the clear words.

If you want some debt why not start with something essential like a flat or house? Rent you will have to pay some time anyway if you don't. I don't want to pay for your car.

...worlds tax payers...

I want edit functionality ;-)

Banks became more cautious in extending credit, making it more difficult for people to borrow. January was an enormous month for customer borrowing, according to Bloomberg's survey of a leading group of financial experts. Total hit a five-month high increase of $16.2 billion, a true shock too many in the financial forecasting field.

Credit unions are a good option in this case, i.e. Alliant and also USAlliance:

Cart before the horse......

When I was living with my parents, getting my own place was more important than a luxury vehicle.

Frankly, I think your friends will laugh at you behind your back that you have such an expensive luxury vehicle but you still live with your parents.

Sure... They'll laugh behind his back... But they'll cry in their beer.


I know this is an old thread and alexeb112 may not return, but there are (or perhaps were) a few striking similarities between his situation and mine. I'm also a software developer making $80k and living with my parents, with more app ideas than I can shake a stick at. On the other hand, I have no college education and pay my parents rent (plus, now, electricity for my car).

Despite having no credit history, I had no trouble getting approved at 3.97% with a $40k (47%) down payment through the local credit union I've been with for over ten years. It helps simplify things when they can see your account history and how dedicated you were to save up specifically for the car, and make any necessary account transfers on the spot. At the time I placed my order, I had my job for exactly 20 months. To avoid the situation experienced by the OP, I made sure to get pre-approved prior to confirming my order. I was told on several occasions during the process that it was the first loan they've given for a Tesla and the decision went all the way up to the VP.


The biggest difference between your situation and @AlexEb112: you found out AHEAD OF TIME how much of a loan you could secure, so you knew how much you needed to save ahead of time. I don't think the rest of the information is relevant (where you live, how much you make, what is your credit history, etc.) Anytime you start planning for a big purchase that requires a loan- you need to know how much you are eligible to borrow.
