Credit rating in re: to auto shopping
When shopping for auto's, why do the dealers always want to see the car you came in with? Is it that they check out your license plate without your permission to see if you have good credit in order for them to somehow come up with a price for the new auto you want to buy? Does checking your credit too many times in a few days lower your credit rating? Is any of this thinking incorrect and checking your credit rating has no effect on a credit score? Anyone know anything about this before tomorrow when I go shopping in earnest.
I'm thinking about a Hundai because it's supposed to be reliable but less expensive than a Toyota (which in my opinion is a quality vehicle that lasts)
Any advice is appreciated.
