Re: I can help, I manage a car dealership.

Hey UpnComing ,

 

This is a great thread, very enjoyable read and appreciate your time and effort answering people's questions.  Here's my question, I'm relatively new to the country (2 years) so have been building up credit history.  I've got current scores in the 690 range (FICO) no negs, longest account 25 months, AAoA of about 14 months, never any lates or any other issues.  Current monthly gross is 19K, running about 7% DTI (mortgage and a 30K boat loan).  What are the odds of my securing financing in the 45K range at a VW dealership?

 

 

Thanks

Yes, I was adding on to this previous post on the previous page:

 

I have a question about how my CR is viewed by a dealership when applying for a loan. Not sure if they are auto-enhanced, but when I received my rejection letters from 2 CU they reported my score as 669 from EQ and 690 from TU. I have 20 positive lines on my CR and 7 adverse ones.  I have a successfully paid off car loan for $11,533 opened 2/4/06 and closed 4/14/11. Never late.

 

2005-2006 were bad years as I was going through a canceled wedding and EX moved out of apt and I got stuck with all of the bills. What can/should I do to try and get auto loan. Looking to finance $12000-13000 and put $1500 down.

 

The baddies on TU are: 

 

1) AES- Student loan- maximum deliquency of 120 day occurred in 9/05- PAY STATUS: Current; Paid or Paying as Agreed

 

2) HSBC Bank- CC- Credit Card lost or stolen (shows 30 day late in 11/05)- PAY STATUS: Current; Paid or Paying as Agreed

4) Kay Jewelers- Charge Account- maximum deliquency of 60 days occurred in 12/05 Inactive account- PAY STATUS: Current; Paid or Paying as Agreed

I can't imagine this wouldn't be an approval.  There are plenty of banks that would pick you up IMHO.  It won't be a low level approval but an approval none the less.  Have you gone to a dealer or just your CU?

  • What really goes on when the salesman "goes to talk to the sales mgr" in the back?
  • Also, why do dealerships have to keep prospective customers waiting for 2-4 hours in order to just buy a car?

Thank you for asking this question!  I have always wondered about this too.

I'm sorry, its hard to keep up when Im working and I completely missed this question! 

 

That's the ultimate question,  what's with the guy behind the curtain?  Well, I'm one of those guys.  My dealership is the highest Google rated dealer in our area.  We maintain this by being honest and open with our customers.  I am strongly of the opinion that our customers have all the information at there finger tips so why try to hide it?  That being said, my salesman have no real authority to agree to anything without checking with me first.  One small mistake on a salesman's part can mean huge losses on the dealers part.  I'm there to make sure everything goes smooth and to approve any deal before a final decision is reached between the salesman and the customer.  Why not deal directly with me?  The easy answer is there is not enough of me to go around.  I have 12 sales people which allows me to figuratively be in more place than once.  But rest assured I make sure I meet each and every one that comes to our store.

 

To answer your second question, 2-4 hrs is unacceptable!  That is a dealer with bad processes.  A good dealer can have you through the entire process within 90 min.
