    How to build credit history once settled?

    New Immigrant, where to get a decent car loan?

    New Immigrant, where to get a decent car loan?

    wow so I was right, credit unions will give you better car loan interest. I'll check that out. I just hope they give me a loan. When I was in Texas, I only started working for a month and they already gave me a car loan, it was fast. I hope its the same here.

    New Immigrant, where to get a decent car loan?

    Yes but as much as possible I don't want to make them my cosigners. I don't think anyone would want to be a cosigner haha. I saw scotia banks offer for car loans for new immigrants sadly I don't see any Honda dealers connected with them.
