“This is great news for today’s car buyers who have less than stellar credit,” says David LaLonde, senior vice president of Auto Credit Express (ACE).

Headquartered in metro Detroit, Auto Credit Express specializes in auto loans for people with bad credit through its website,www.autocreditexpress.com.

We take pride in helping first time buyers and people with slow pay, repossession, even after bankruptcy, get financed for a new or late model car,” LaLonde says. “We help real people across the country every day. It’s one of the things that make us different, and it makes us better.”

The recent news from Experian creates even more opportunities for ACE to help put car buyers with bad credit behind the wheel of a new vehicle, he said.

Experian’s analysis of the first quarter of 2012 found:

Credit scores dropped

  • In the first quarter of 2012, the average credit score of someone buying a new car dropped 6 points to 760, close to the average score of 753 in 2008.
