How do I get a car today?
First of all, you need to have a job that can be verified, and not be currently involved in a bankruptcy. You will need to present a state ID or Driver's License, a paystub, proof of residence, and your down payment. We value and respect your time, and with all these, you can drive away in about an hour. If you are not sure what does and does not qualify feel free to contact us, we are happy to answer any and all questions.
How much can I be approved for?
Our calculations are based on your income and all other financial obligations you may have. With that information, we can determine a payment schedule that fits your particular circumstances. That may be weekly, bi-weekly or another plan. Remember, we want to help you any way we can. Unlike traditional car dealerships and banks, we will work with you to examine your current situation and not your past mistakes. So we can figure out a payment plan that works best for you!
How big a down payment do I need?
That depends on the price of the car. A more significant down payment will always improve your chances of obtaining approval sooner. Not only that but with a larger down payment the car will be yours sooner. Which would also help your credit score improve. If you are not sure about how much of a down payment you will need or what you can afford based on your monthly payments, give us a call and we will help you.

YES! At Cherokee Auto you drive your chosen vehicle home the same day! We understand your eagerness to hit the road in your new car, and we’re committed to providing a seamless and efficient process. In most cases, we can make it happen, ensuring you can start enjoying your vehicle right away.
Can you finance people even if they have bad credit?
We believe in providing financing options for all applicants, regardless of their credit history. Our comprehensive in-house process carefully considers your complete application and required documentation, allowing us to tailor a decision that perfectly fits your specific needs.
Do you require a credit check to finance a vehicle?
We understand that everyone’s financial situation is unique. While we may consider factors such as credit history, our main focus is on your overall ability to make payments and your current financial stability. We believe in providing opportunities for individuals with various credit backgrounds, including those with less-than-perfect credit. Our goal is to find flexible financing solutions tailored to your specific needs, so you can drive away in the vehicle you desire. Visit us today and let us help you get on the road to car ownership, regardless of your credit history.
Will buying from CHEROKEE AUTO really help re-establish my credit?
While it can seem like a never-ending cycle for people with no credit, poor credit or even bad credit, there is a way to improve your credit score. We can definitely help you establish or rebuild your credit as long as you meet your payment schedule.
Why choose Buy Here Pay Here financing over traditional lenders?
