Woo! Instantly Approved for BoA low rate (and recon'd to best!)

So excited, trying to buy a car (first time buyer) and I've been doing a lot of research trying to find the best place for a 72 month loan. Applied with US Bank and was rejected as a first time buyer, and a credit union offered me Tier 2 of 4.2%. Decided to bite the bullet and try BoA as a last ditch effort, and was just instantly approved online at 2.6% for 72 months! They called me to verify and I said I would rather have the best advertised rate after seeing my Equifax score they pulled (774). She said no problem and lowered it to 2.39. Approved for $25,000, but she said I could go over if I want (unlikely).

 

Yay!




Starting Score: 583 (CreditKarma, 2009)
Current Score: 783 (Walmart Free FICO, March 20, 2012), 774 (Equifax, BoA Pull, 2/20/13)
Goal Score: 800+

Yeah I'm over 40K, but I've seen people approved for similar amounts to mine with lower incomes. I'm not sure how income is figured into it.

Income is figured into your debt to income ratio. Lets say Sally makes $90K/annually butt her debts are extremely high so she has no disposable income to take on a new car payment. Or Bob who makes $30K but has no debts, lenders will favor him over Sally. Hope this helps. 

I'm a personal banker and do a lot of auto loans serving the Houston area.
I suggest first time car buyers to read the sticky guide in the auto loan section.
I try to check these forums often, but if I missed your post, please feel free to message me with a link to it.

Thanks! So I make 50K per year and debts are $500 per month if that helps.
