Re: Auto Enhanced Scores? what is it?

The problem I have with this is that dealers are making credit based decision based on a score or formulation of some sort that the average person doesn't know about or have access to.  It's fine in my opinion if each lender or business wants to have their own credit/tier criteria but basing credit lending decisions on a formula that the average person doesn't have access to or awareness of is shady business.  I think if they are going to deny (or approve) you credit at a dealer that the lender should be able to provide you with the facts that it was based on auto-enhanced measurements or straight up credit score. If they are not pulling your credit score but pulling/formulating an auto-enhanced credit score they should tell you. 

 

To me, just seems like another way lenders try to confuse the average consumer.

 

Just my 2-cents.
