What is a credit score?

Your credit score is a number that depicts your creditworthiness based on your personal credit history. This number is calculated by looking at factors like how many accounts you have open, debt levels, and repayment history. Your credit score number is used by lenders to get an idea of how likely you or another borrower are to pay off a loan. If your number is high, that's a good sign that you'll be able to pay them back in a timely fashion. As a result, your credit score may get you a better deal on a new vehicle.

How can I improve my credit score?

If you're looking to save some money on your next vehicle purchase from Tropical Ford, a great way to get started is to improve your credit score. The easiest way to do this is to make sure that you are paying your bills on time. You can also accrue more credit by paying utility and phone bills before they're due, which will make your credit score go up. Do your best to pay off any debts you may have, and keep the balance on your credit cards low and manageable. Don't open any new accounts that you don't need, and dispute any inaccuracies you may find. If you follow these steps, your credit score will improve significantly.

How can I find my credit score?

Finding out your credit score is easy. Just head to the Credit Estimator page right here on the Tropical Ford website and use our tools to get an estimate. Once you have your number, you'll have a better idea of your financing options. Don't hesitate to ask us any questions you may have.
