Your credit score plays an essential role in your ability to meet your financial goals, like getting approved for an auto loan. This three-digit number is generated from the information in your credit report and can range from 300 to 900 – with 900 being excellent.  Your credit score shows lenders how well you manage your credit and how risky it may be to loan you money. Creditors often set guidelines on the minimum score required to borrow money. If you have a higher credit score, your chances of getting a lower interest rate are very good. However, if you have no credit history or a low score, it may be more challenging to get approved for a loan with the terms and interest rate that you want. As Skaha Ford, we strive to get our customers the best auto financing rates in BC.
