Same here in my experience, both CUs that I applied for auto financing pulled a Classic FICO score, not auto enhanced.   YMMV of course, you can always ask the loan officers/managers, they might be able to tell you.

Depends on CU.  In general, the larger the CU, the more likely it'll be auto-enhanced.  Most AFAIK, probably aren't.

 

That said, if you get approved from a good CU, it really doesn't seem to matter anyway with the rates they're typically offering.

 

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 673, EQ 8 707, TU 720, EX 702* (09/02/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)

Yeah, I don't know why CU's wouldn't but anecdotally they seem to be all over the map on that.  I have to assume that a Classic pull costs the same as any industry option including an auto-enhanced; however, since a number of CU's are pretty technically unsophisticated it's possible that it's just sloppiness in their systems, or that they just don't care / feel it makes any substantial difference.

 

That said the big honking lenders with copious amounts of customer data all tend to pull auto-enhanced for a car loan.  Presumably they wouldn't do that unless they felt it was more accurate and therefore more profitable to do so.

 

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 673, EQ 8 707, TU 720, EX 702* (09/02/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)

Re: do credit unions pull auto enhanced scores?

My auto credit is excellent.. my regular fico not so much.. 

Most people would assume that the credit union will give me a better rate.. but - would't agencies that used my auto enhanced score give me a better rate?  

 

I'm going to a CU and through the dealership financing to compare regardless..

I would recommend calling them any ask what they do. Remember your normal credit info gets taken into account on your auto-enhanced score :smileywink:
