(the car was a DEMO car). It was sometihng that was different from what i wanted (i.e., color, options). thanks in advance.
At one time if you had a high fico score the dealers would let you buy anything as long as the banks pay them but with everything going on it's not what it used to be. I remember buying my first 96 accord and the salesmen telling me I needed to bring in two paystubs.

you would believe how many people I know who make six figures and have crappy credit scores. It funny cause some jobs require credit to be ran before they hire. Credit really tells a lot about people.
