Maybe, maybe not. Different lenders have different requirments, not all just based upon the credit score. Prior credit. down payment, length of loan, age of vehicle, employment status and length, etc., etc., etc. Best thing is to gather the information on the vehicle and ask the financial institution you already deal with.
