Why Does My Credit Score Matter?

If you are in the market for a vehicle and you have been denied a loan from some banks because of your credit history, you might be left questioning why your credit score even matters at all.

Creditworthiness: Banks use your credit score as a quick vector check of your creditworthiness, or how likely you are to repay a loan. Low credit scores often indicate a limited credit history, defaulted payments, or a high debt-to-income ratio. None of these factors are catastrophic, though. Whether you have a short credit history or one that highlights a few mistakes, you can still get into the car of your dreams.

The Impact: Banks typically view low credit scores as red flags, and could deny you outright for an auto loan. Without the self-sufficiency afforded by a vehicle or the opportunity to improve a bad score, the credit score cycle can seem self-perpetuating. If your score is just high enough to be approved, you will still be subject to high-interest rates that can make repayment difficult.
