Did you really need a new loan. I hate to say it but you got ripped off. I'd wait a good year before even thinking about applying for stuff again.

I see the good things you are doing on your credit and agree with much of your plan but what is still on your file that has your score in the 500's?

I wouldn't worry about BofA and INQ.

at 25% I wouldn't leave $100 on a car loan!

 

OP just work on the negatives that remain or what ever else is bringing you so far down... someone with only 3 credit cards and opening a new car loan that is in high 500's,low 600's would usually see a huge score JUMP UP not down... so little confused... but assume an auto loan is good for you so should rebound quickly.
