Re: AU Account still NOT reporting with Equifax...can I do anything about this?

Yes WE CAN!!

Knowledge is key too. Had I known about my financial impact and scores, I would have taken care of them a little bit better!

I known about the impact of  credit scores.  I was a broke college student with over extended credit lines.  I needed the credit to keep me afloat.  Good job didn't come until 6 months after graduation so creditors were getting paid slow...too slow at times and not enough.  I'm glad those days are over.

If your in the midwest you EQ file is owned by EQ rather some idiots called CSC
People say "Only apply for credit you NEED"

I say "apply for credit you have PRATICAL use of"

I don't have AMEX card because I don't want a card that suffers from PMS

......in December I will have two paid auto's never late showing, I just don't believe I am going to get the very best rate


 

 

FYI:

 

In order to materially benefit a FICO score, prior installment loans should have at least a two year history of on time payments. There should also be a minimum of two such installment loans in file. The two paid auto loans might do more for you than you think.

 

Getting the best rate however has more to do with where and how you seek the loan.

 

Spend a lot of time HERE between now and December. You will save a lot of money.

Checking other auto finance forums may help a lot also.

 

 

 

Hint / Warning:

 

Both new & used care dealers will lie and say that your credit scores are lower than they really are. Since you can't usually buy the Auto Enhanced Scores, you never really know how good or bad your auto score really is.

Hey Credit Able,

thanks for that info. yes my ford will be jpaid off in two more payments, never late, 40 months and toyota is paid as well. toy before ford.  never late.

depends where i go to shop i guess...a friend of mine who works at a dealership offered me invoice price for new car and $500 over for used.

 

i can only think that FICO enhanced would HELP me, not hurt me. never late on my autos. i'm religious about that and always have been...THe mercedes dealership i want to visit does not use enhanced scores.... if i have to get a co signer, i will...

 

off to peruse the auto loans! Smiley Happy
