Yes, for FICO purposes, they should be scored as 1 inq.

Re: A "note" about dealerships running your credit.

A year later each of the inquiries counted seperate.  I have 6 on eq 4 on trans and 8 on ex.  I think its more or less a lie.  each one counted for me.  I had poor credit though so If you have good maybe they only pull till they find a good deal than stop. Maybe they say its counted as 1 meaning that when a specialist reviews your account for new credit (if you didnt get autoapprove) that then they will consider it all being from a car loan. Also dealerships in FL are allowed to add up to 3% onto the loan, So after they gave me the rate I renegotated down 1.5% and they said ok

They are listed as individual HPs,, but for FICO "scoring", if they are coded correctly and within a time frame, then they are "scored" as one.

What does "coded correctly" mean? Is there a way for the consumer to see the coding of each inquery?

Re: A "note" about dealerships running your credit.

Unfortunately there's no way for us to see how the inquiries are coded. I was told that it is tied to the lender / creditor that pulls your credit.
