I was thinking about getting an Auto-Loan for a CPO Honda or Hyundai.
I am thinking about $15000 loan.
I am very new to credit and have my credit history for last 8 Months. My Transunion FICO is 710 and Equifax is 716.
Have an Annual income of 80K. Since I am very new to this credit I would like to get some help on whether I should proceed with the loan, what estimated rate would I expect to be getting. Should I wait a few more months or a year, just get a second hand car for like 5-6K or something.
It's up to you if you like the new car smell, or if you want to risk it on a used car. I'm not familiar with used cars myself, and prior to buying new cars, I think the dealers always ripped me off with unnecessary work for my used cars.
Your income is definitely sufficient though your credit is young. Offer a down payment if you can.Reading these boards, I think you could qualify for a DCU loan of 1.49% (their best rate) or 3.99%. Not that big a difference $ wise. It won't hurt to go to the dealer and ask what they come up with. Worst case, you get some inquiries and your score drops 3 points.
