This was back in December '09.
The score was :
Fico 610, Experian 609, Equifax 610, Transunion 637 (FICO), one derogatory, one judgment, one nearly finished auto lease with BMWFS.
Applied for $30 to $50k car loan, got denied by these banks:
SANTANDER consumer- DENIED- one of these reports pulled, Equifax, Experian, Transunion, LexisNexis.
WACHOVIA dealer services- DENIED- report pulled, Transunion.
CarMax CityFinancial Auto Credit Inc,.- DENIED- report pulled, Experian NCAC.
BMW Financial Services- DENIED- report pulled, Experian.
Reasons (all combined) for denial:
Insufficient Credit References

Length of Time Accounts have been Established
Proportion of Balance to Credit Limits on Revolving Accounts
Number of non-delinquent Revolving Accounts
Too Many Recent Inquiries on Credit Bureau Report
Insufficient Total Credit Limits
Insufficient Available Credit

.... None of those banks checked Equifax report.
