Keep in mind: Because car loans involve less money over a shorter period of time -- and an auto is easier to repossess than a home -- the same credit score that might have put you in a subprime mortgage loan could bring you a prime or near-prime auto loan. If you actually have good credit and apply for a subprime loan, it's likely that you will get less favorable terms than you deserve.
