Re: Thin credit history and auto loans
@jon17
Yeah but I don't have many credit unions in my area. And the ones I have gone to have denied me. :/
@trish
I'm not sure what you mean about baddies. I don't have any negative marks if that's what u mean. 100% on time payments and no collection accounts. I have 2 accounts both credit cards (cap1). I was told that I NEED to have a large account (such as a car loan) to REALLY improve my credit. So with all my 18% apr offers the guy told me I need to "take the plunge" if I want a better rate. But he WAS a car salesman at the dealership so I'm having a hard time accepting the validity of his claim. Can anyone back this up?
