yes i did today they keep giving a new number to call or transfer there to 866-297-9257, and the same person ends up picking up, b/c when i ask them what happen they tell me you need to speak to your credit anyalist. funny things is its allready on my experian report as open, and when i check the application status it says approved for 2000. and the cards mailed out doesnt make sense.

Try back during typical business hours in US Eastern time, and politely and repeatedly ask to be escalated to a credit analyst.
Computer programs often make these decisions, and they don't know how to (or aren't programmed to) recognize auto loan app inquiries. It's just something programmed in to the software to catch people on mad app sprees who might be in desperate financial waters and are trying to run up a bunch of charged expenses and then default.
Once you finally get to credit analyst level, tell them which inqs are auto loan-related. They should understand what's happening, and if not, you can tell them about how common this is.
It's one thing to go berserk applying for new CC's, but presumably you weren't out trying to buy three new cars. Good luck!
