I just checkd my credit report, and it appeared that Toyota had pull my credit report twice.
I leased a Toyota last November, and the credit report showed total of 2 hard inquires on the same day. One is from the dealership, and the second one is from Toyota Motor Credit.
Does anyone have similar situation? Is it possible that I could dispute one of them?
The reason you have two hard pull's is because generally a dealership will pull your credit to review before they submit you to lender's.
Dealership's first pull your credit themselves so the F&I manager can review your credit bureau to make sure they send you to the bank's they think will give you the best term's. Without doing so, they are blindly submitting you in hopes that you'll get approved without seeing the full picture. There is nothing to dispute, because you signed a credit application authorizing them to do so.
They did that to me too, however it still counts as one. Plus it is much better then other dealers they run it like 100 times.
