I was going to use GTE FCU because they always pull EX but I am wondering if I should try to clean up a little more before applying. If there could be a drastic reduction in my EX score due to no Auto loan history, I don't want to apply now.
Most of the time lenders will use an auto-enhanced FICO score when applying for an auto loan. These scores might be higher or lower than the FICO scores you pull at this site. A good auto history, a higher auto enhanced score, a bad auto history the lower your scores. I suspect since you never had an auto loan your auto scores will be lower than your regular FICO scores.
