Getting a new Volkswagen car or SUV doesn't have to be a scary experience. Yes, it's a major purchase. And sure, you might have a few financial skeletons hiding away in your closet.

But who doesn't?

Dealerships have come a long way from years past. And now more than ever, customers with bad credit can get approved to lease new Volkswagen models. All you have to do is follow these basic steps to help you get started.

Be Prepared - The best thing you can do for yourself is have all of your documents organized and ready to discuss before you walk into the dealership. By having your ID, income statements, and proof of employment on hand, it will streamline the approval process. It will also show that you are a serious buyer who came with a plan.

Set Your Budget - While it might be nice to get the car with all the latest and greatest features, you must be realistic when it comes to what you can afford.

Stay true to your budget and research a vehicle that matches your wants and needs at a price point that is comfortable for you. The last thing anyone needs is to stretch themselves too thin by living beyond their means.

Know Your Credit Score - If you know your credit score ahead of time, you won't be blindsided when you walk into the dealership nor face the risk of further damaging your score with a hard credit inquiry. Take the time to utilize a service like Credit Karma and avoid a hard credit inquiry showing on your report.

Remain Open-Minded - Put your pride aside when it comes to negotiating the terms of your lease. If you walk into the dealership with a one-track mind, you will most likely leave empty-handed and disappointed. Instead, express the type of vehicle you want to get at the price you are most comfortably paying. Then expand on the conversation from there.

Show Proof of Income - One of things that will increase your approval odds is showing proof of income. If you can show consistent income, that will dismiss any reservations held by the lending party. Even with a bad credit score, you can still show that you are capable of making your lease payments on time.
