Dirty Trick Free Zone: Episode #10- Understand your credit before going to the dealership

May 27, 2010


In today’s epidsode of the Car Dealer Dirty Trick Free Zone, I talk  about the importance of understanding your credit before going to a dealership.  This is one of the best tips that I believe I can give to everyone out there who is interested in buying a car.

So you’ve made the decision, you want a new car, well now what? To me the first step should be knowing and understanding everything about your credit. You should know your credit better then the dealer does so make sure to understand and study your credit score and the componets that make up your score. I think that looking at your credit is often like stepping on the scale. If you don’t look then you don’t have to face it but more often then not it’s really not as bad as you may think it is. It is that fear of knowing that really gets in the way.

When you understand and know your credit, this puts you in a great position when going to the dealer. It gives you the option of choosing where to finance and knowing where your rate should be around.

I would love to hear any tips you have about buying a car and if you have any questions feel free to contact me at jillcares@keycars.com! My name is Jill Merriam, owner of Key Hyundai of Manchester and Key Hyundai of Milford, and I am the dealer for the people.
