A little credit union that I belong to pulls both regular AND auto-enhanced, Ive been talking to one fo their ladies for a month or so gathering info and have found out while they pull both versions they are Equifiax only... this is in Colorado
Yeah, I don't know why CU's wouldn't but anecdotally they seem to be all over the map on that. I have to assume that a Classic pull costs the same as any industry option including an auto-enhanced; however, since a number of CU's are pretty technically unsophisticated it's possible that it's just sloppiness in their systems, or that they just don't care / feel it makes any substantial difference.
That said the big honking lenders with copious amounts of customer data all tend to pull auto-enhanced for a car loan. Presumably they wouldn't do that unless they felt it was more accurate and therefore more profitable to do so.
Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
