Seems like Cap1 has been doing that type of increase in these last few months. My dad received same increase as you. I heard they were changing their cli policies so I guess it's true.


Congrats, take care of your credit!

Car loans are ridiculously easy to get...I wouldn't be concerned.  They just approve whatever unless you have negative accounts or try to buy a $80k car with an income of $25k.
