Auto Loan Credit Inquiries Explained

Learn how Auto Loan Credit Inquiries impact your credit report.

Explained: The difference between hard inquires and soft Auto Loan Inquiries
Explained: The difference between hard inquires and soft inquires

Did you know…FICO score considers all inquiries within a 45 day period for an auto loan as a single inquiry.

Ever wondered…Hey, what’s the difference between a hard inquiry and a soft inquiry on my credit report?

Well, here are some answers.

When someone checks your credit report, it’s called an inquiry. Some inquires do not affect your credit, while others might.

Soft Inquiries

Lenders do not see soft inquiries when they order your credit report. Soft inquiries include:

  • Pre-screened offers for credit (example:  free credit card offers)
  • Account reviews by your existing lenders
  • Requests related to employment
  • Requests for insurance purposes
  • When you request your own credit report

Hard Inquiries

Hard inquiries typically come from a lender or other creditor who wants to check your credit report as a result of your loan application or request for credit, goods or services. These inquiries are shared with other lenders viewing the report and can have an impact on credit scores and lending decisions.

Multiple Inquiries

One exception occurs when you are “shopping”.  FICO score considers all inquiries within a 45 day period for an auto loan as a single inquiry. You can avoid lowering your FICO Score by doing your all your serious auto hunting within a short period of time.

 

Looking for an Auto Loan?

We can help!

It’s common for Ron Westphal Chevrolet to submit your information to multiple lenders in an effort to find the lowest interest rate and most favorable loan terms. This practice allows you to benefit from lenders competing for your business.

Lenders recognize that shopping for only one car and does not mean you are trying to open multiple new accounts. Credit scoring systems have been designed to account for that practice and include rules such as counting the same type of inquiry as only one inquiry as long as they are made within a short period of time.

Call our Finance Department at 630-898-9630.  We will be happy to provide you with additional information in English or Spanish.  Or, visit our website.

What is the ‘FICO Score’

A FICO score is a type of credit score created by the Fair Isaac Corporation. Lenders use borrowers’ FICO scores along with other details on borrowers’ credit reports to assess credit risk and determine whether to extend credit. FICO scores take into account various factors in five areas to determine credit worthiness: payment history, current level of indebtedness, types of credit used, length of credit history and new credit accounts.

Reat Seat Reminder

GM is adding rear seat reminder to several vehicles models in 2017.
GM is adding rear seat reminder to several vehicles models in 2017.

DETROIT — Rear Seat Reminder, an industry-first feature designed to remind drivers to check the back seat as they exit their vehicles under certain circumstances, will be offered across many Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC vehicles by the 2018 model year.

The system monitors rear door usage to remind drivers to check their rear seats before walking away from their vehicles.

Looking for Rear Seat Reminder?

Looking for a 2017 model with rear seat reminder?  Call Ron Westphal Chevy at 630-898-9630 or visit our website.

“GM’s Rear Seat Reminder feature is an initial step to use technology to help remind drivers to check the rear seat before exiting the vehicle under certain conditions,” said Jeff Boyer, vice president of GM Global Vehicle Safety. “We want to help everyone to take one simple, extra step. That’s why Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac will offer the Rear Seat Reminder on a broad range of vehicles, from small cars to full-size SUVs and everything in between.”

Thirty-nine children died from heatstroke this year as result of being left in vehicles or gaining access to an unattended vehicle, a 60 percent increase over last year’s figure.

Rear Seat Reminder debuted earlier this year on the all-new 2017 GMC Acadia. Models to offer the feature include those listed below as well as some 2018 vehicles models that will be announced at a later date:

  • 2017 Buick Lacrosse
  • 2017 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV
  • 2017 Cadillac CT6
  • 2017 Chevrolet Cruze and Cruze Hatchback
  • 2017 Chevrolet Malibu
  • 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • 2017 Chevrolet Suburban
  • 2017 Chevrolet Silverado
  • 2017 Chevrolet Colorado
  • 2017 GMC Yukon
  • 2017 GMC Yukon XL
  • 2017 GMC Sierra
  • 2017 GMC Canyon
  • 2018 Cadillac XT5
  • 2018 Cadillac CTS and CTS-V
  • 2018 Cadillac ATS
  • 2018 Chevrolet Equinox

The Rear Seat Reminder works by monitoring the vehicle’s rear doors. The feature is intended to activate when either rear door is opened and closed up to 10 minutes before the vehicle is started or while the vehicle is running. Once the system is activated, the vehicle is designed to sound five chimes and display a message in the driver information center that reads “Rear Seat Reminder / Look in Rear Seat” the next time the vehicle is turned off.

“This new technology developed by General Motors will give busy parents and caregivers the important reminder to always check the back seat,” said Kate Carr, president and CEO of Safe Kids Worldwide. “The safest way to protect a child from heatstroke is to never leave a child unattended in a vehicle, and features like Rear Seat Reminder, coupled with continued public education, can help combat this preventable tragedy.”

The feature cannot actually detect items in the back seat, so it is always important to check the rear seat prior to exiting the vehicle.

General Motors Co. (NYSE:GM, TSX: GMM) and its partners produce vehicles in 30 countries, and the company has leadership positions in the world’s largest and fastest-growing automotive markets. GM, its subsidiaries and joint venture entities sell vehicles under the Chevrolet, Cadillac, Baojun, Buick, GMC, Holden, Jiefang, Opel, Vauxhall and Wuling brands.

Springsteen’s ’57 Chevy is for sale

Bruce Springsteen's '57 Chevy is for sale.
Bruce Springsteen’s ’57 Chevy is for sale.

Bruce Springsteen’s iconic ’57 Chevy is up for auction on eBay—but you need to be pretty wealthy to afford it. As of this writing, bidding is above $200,000, and the reserve price still hasn’t been met. That’s quite an increase from the $2,000 The Boss spent on the 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible back in 1975, but consider the history: According to the auction listing, Springsteen wrote some of his songs while in the car; the rocker mentioned the car in his autobiography; and, as the Asbury Park Press notes, the car was pictured in both Time and Newsweek features on Springsteen. He ultimately sold the flame-covered convertible in 1976 because it drew too much attention to him; it last changed hands in 2011, when it sold for $468,000.
