Does shopping for a car affect my credit score? Our local federal credit union wants to share how this happens and how you can afford to finance your vehicle. You might be surprised that it does not always affect you badly. While some individuals expect that outcome, shopping for the best deals on auto loans can positively impact your score.
Did you know you get to see your credit score for free when you download our app? Read how below.
Credit Score Impact
Initially, you can minimize your credit by shopping within a short amount of time. According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, applying for loans over a certain period can lower your credit score. Typically, these lenders check your score within 14 to 45 days and only count as a single inquiry, depending on the credit scoring model used.
