Re: Auto Loan Approvals!
APPROVING BANK: Harley Davidson Credit/Eaglemark Savings Bank
BUREAU PULLED: Experian
 

CREDIT SCORE: 705

CUSTOMER STATE OF RESIDENCE: Hawaii
NEW/USED: New (motorcycle)
 

YEAR OF VEHICLE: 2009
MAKE: Harley Davidson
 
MODEL: 883XL Sportster
 

MILEAGE: 0.0

RETAIL/LEASE: Retail purchase

AMOUNT OF LOAN: $11,000 (includes $1,200 extended warranty)

TERM CONTRACTED: 72 mos.

APR/LEASE RATE: 9.00 %

MONTHLY PAYMENT: $230

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: Purchased this motorcycle for some inexpensive transportation here in Hawaii. The credit app was very brief...sales person came back within 10 minutes and told me I was approved for much more than what I wanted to finance...took about 2 hours from the time I walked in to riding the bike out of their parking lot. If you're in the market for buying a motorcycle, Harley Davidson/Eaglemark was a pleasant experience to deal with.
General note: My FICO scores range from 681 (Equifax) to 705 (Experian)...I have $0 credit card debt...no mortgage debt...no BK, no lates, just 2 paid liens from 1997 that still show in my public records section of my credit file....
My credit score with Equifax dropped 21 points after Harley Davidson posted the installment amount to my Equifax credit file....Experian and TransUnion did not drop. Wild and wierd stuff.

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY:Having two bad previous auto loans and one from Fireside thrift that was 5 years old and still had a small balance that I refused to pay them on principal I knew i was in for some tough time trying to find financing. I went to three dealers because they hard 3 cars that I would even attempt to purchase. Finance manager worked his tail off and moments before I signed for a 12.4 interest rate on another Maxima, he finally got the deal done through Spire FCU. I instantly walked away from the other deal and got my car. The car is fully loaded, has everything and is still under factory warranty. I got a fantastic deal, and they got a customer for life. I will be back to get my new Maxima as my graduation present in 2-3 years.

AMOUNT OF LOAN: 28769
TERM CONTRACTED:72
APR/LEASE RATE:14.99 (Ouch, will refinance once the credit situation is improved)
MONTHLY PAYMENT: $640
MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: Was out on Workers Compensation last year and could not keep up with any of many of my payments (only two that stayed up to date were student loans).  Knew I would need a co-signer and would be at the mercy of the financial institutions.  Was originally set on not having a payment greater than $550, but that was shot out the window.  I will deal with the high payments for a year and then try to refinance.  In the mean time, I will be paying almost $800 a month to make sure I'm not upside down when it comes time to refi.

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: dealership couldn't finance me at 4 years because it is such an old car.  1 owner, garaged, only 70k miles.  Price was 10,499, got them down to 9999 so that tax and everything would add up to less than $11k (9k financed + 2k from insurance claim).  Went ahead and got a warranty for cars with less than 80k miles, and I'm feeling really good about the whole transaction!

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY - had to have co-signer in order to get low apr. Could of got the 0% finance but payments would of been too high for me to afford. I'll pay extra when I can and get paid off before the 5 years. I think 5 yr loan is too long, but dealer/co-signer thought I'd be more comfortable. No penalty to pay loan off early.  Did put small down payment.
