Yes. Lenders will lend up to 150% of the vehicles value for the right candidate.
WARNING: If you read this website, your chances of getting car finance with bad credit will dramatically improve.
Conversely, if you have adverse credit and you are buying a car that the financier isn't as favourable towards or it could be because they are uncomfortable with lending you $15,000 but will lend you $12,000, you might be required to put in a deposit. If you have do not have cash in the bank this can cause further issues as you are now going to have to borrow from friends or family or a pay day lender at much higher interest rates. My advice to you if you are asked to put in a deposit because of the amount you wish to borrow would be to find a cheaper car. I never recommend borrowing on top of borrowing.
You can be given up to 150% of the cars value which will allow you to pay any fees and charges or insurances. This means you can buy a car with no deposit and having impaired credit. This wont be available to everyone, it will depend entirely on your credit history.
