 MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: This will be my 3rd Auto loan with NFCU. Last month I contacted them about getting  a loan with two open Auto Loans with them. They approved me for up to 17,500 (that's all I asked for) on the condition I trade in one of the vehicles, so that I only have two open auto loans. The approved rate was 10.79%. I wasn't too pleased with the rate and spent my time trying to find a good auto deal. They gave me 30 days to use the loan or it would be voided. I didn't find the car or deal I wanted and decided I would pay off one of the loans and sell the vehicle outright instead of trading it in. A few days after I paid off the car I called back and found out the 10.79% loan had expired. I asked to reapply and I said I would like around $18,500 and I made sure I told the person I paid off the loan. She came back within seconds and said "they want to counter offer pre-approval for up to $22,000" I said sure. I thought she made a mistake when she said 3.49%. I know the paid off loan did not have time to hit the credit bureaus yet. The sent the check FEDEX and bought my wife a Kia Soul last night!

APPROVING BANK:Ford Motors

CREDIT SCORE: EX: 598 (disclosed to me by capital one auto finance) EQ: 639 TU: 666

RETAIL/LEASE:Retail
AMOUNT OF LOAN: $37,000
TERM CONTRACTED:72
APR/LEASE RATE: 5.9%
MONTHLY PAYMENT: $700
ANNUAL INCOME:$67,000
MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: Payment was originally mid 600s but added gap insurance and premium warranty to cover all the electrical equipment in the car as it is fully loaded. Also when I originally went to ford i was already approved for the capital one blank check for a used vehicle up to $30,000 with an 7.8% interest rate. I used the blank check for negotiation purposes only as i knew i would need to finance more than the 30 grand. Ford's offer on a used 2011 Explorer (the exact same as the new one i purchased) was 11.9%. So i went to Carmax to see what they would offer and they were going to finance me at 8.9%. When the ford salesman found out I was shopping around he called Ford to get them to drop the interest rate to 5.9% if I purchased new instead of used. I went with it because there was only a $3,000 difference between the two vehicles and my monthly payments actually came out cheaper with the lower interest rate on the new one.

You did things right.  Way to go.......sell the car outright and get yourself a better deal. Patience wins out.  Good job, and congrats.  Hope your wife enjoys her new ride.

Re: Auto Loan Approvals!

Would NFCU not finance you, and if not why?

 

Question...what was your score at the time you applied for the car loan, was it the numbers mentioned from October 09?

I ask becasue I am wanting to apply for a car loan and get preapproved before going to the dealership. Also tryint to decide if I should apply for the CR Visa at the same time or before the car loan. My current fico EQ is 644, my TU and EX  are in the 700's.

 

I have been working with Lexington Law, but I am about to fire them, they take their time to get more money out of me. I disputed an item on my own and it was removed in about  2 weeks, LL takes forever!

 

Any advice out there is greatly appreciated.

Re: Auto Loan Approvals!

I am new to the community and have been reading the post, this is a great place to obtain MUCH knowledge, as it relates to credit.

 

Question...I am wanting to apply for a car loan and get preapproved before going to the dealership.  My current fico EQ is 644, my TU and EX  are in the 700's.

 

I currently drive an 06 Sonata, and want to trade it in for the 2011 or 2012 Limited, fully loaded.

 

Any advice out there is greatly appreciated.
