I agree with the previous comment of not engaging in any other loans. Since your credit history started 4 months ago, it won't look good that suddenly you are opening accounts. Keep your balances low and try to have a down payment. I would also apply for an auto loan with a credit union- they are more lenient on credit score and history versus other banks, they also have better rates. I had a 636 credit score to refi my car... Wells Fargo was able to give me 11.7% and a local credit union gave me 4.99%- HUGE difference! If you call local banks and provide them with your credit score, they can usually tell you if they are able to finance you and provide a general rate prior to applying. Good luck!
I agree, especially since your new with credit. Big banks will take advantage of that. CU's are more lenient.
