Your credit score is a number that helps financial institutions predict the risk associated with your purchase of a car, house, credit card, etc. Typically, your credit score ranges from about 350 to 850, and is essentially meant to forecast how (and if) you will pay your bills. In general, the higher your credit score, the more likely you are to get approved for a car loan.
The systems that generate your credit score look at your credit report, and take several factors into account when determining your credit score, including, for instance, your payment history, and the number of inquiries made on your credit report.
