Ripping your credit

This is 2011, so pretty much every buyer is financing their car these days. But that doesn't mean you need to pay whopping interest rates on your dealer - or manufacturer-backed loan. One dirty trick dealers use is to tell you your credit is worse than it actually is; this way, you won't "qualify" for the lowest possible financing rates offered by your salesman. If your credit does stink - well, then your credit stinks. But if you're sure your finances are in better shape than your dealer suggests, claw back. Know your credit standing before sitting down in a dealer's office to ensure you get the best financing rate possible.* Bing: What's your credit rating look like?
