A credit score is not just any number. This three-digit figure is what lenders use to assess a potential borrower’s creditworthiness. In the case of car buyers, specifically those who intend to finance the auto purchase, this number is crucial. This will dictate whether they qualify for financing and what rate they will get.While each car buyer knows about the importance of his or her credit score, he or she may not be aware that there is more than one credit score for each person. The idea of having multiple scores is bound to confuse any potential vehicle owner.
