Thinking about getting a new car? Based on all the car company advertising, it would appear it’s a great time to be in the market to buy a new vehicle. All of the big car companies have promotions for auto lending such as cash back incentives, 0% financing and other incentives to move the 2015 inventory off the lot.
However, have you also noticed the fine print in the advertisements? It often points out that these more favorable financing terms are only available to qualified applicants. And, having a higher FICO® Score is often quoted as one of the key requirements.
