Do you see anything worth paying off to boost the score? (Collections enclosed)

Ouch! You can try Cap 1 Auto. They are a little bit more credit flexible. Good luck.

AZHeather, when you say Cap One is more flexible credit wise, what exactly do you mean?

OP, do you have any loans reporting like student loans, mortgages, etc. If so, adding a car loan won't help your FICO any because your installment mix is already satisfied. Even if you didn't have any, any gains would be very, very minimal. IMO, paying thousands in interest isn't worth a few points at best.

 

What I would do though is focus on repair and buy a beater if needing a car to get your from here to there. Focus on repair and within 2-3 months, you could have most if not all baddies removed. Check out Rebuilding Your Credit for more info.

Re: 610 score, previous repo fell off, and was DENIED, HELP!

Are all these balances with the collection agencies current? like you have not paid them and still owe them?

If you can pay cash but want to rebuild I don't understand why you say I don't want to tie all the money up until loan is paid off... you just said you could pay cash if you had to!

second, if you are trying to rebuild and you do this secure option, you could technically wait a year or so and apply elsewhere or with them to refinance and move away from the secured?
