This week Experian announced a new version of their credit report which should prevent car dealers and lending institutions from making mistakes about your automotive credit history by overlooking important information…

All your automotive information in one place

At Auto Credit Express, we want to keep you up to date on the latest news from the credit bureaus. Because of this, you should know that this past Monday, Experian Automotive, a division of Experian, announced the creation of a new credit profile report to be called Experian's Automotive Credit Profile®. The new report is designed expressly for automotive dealers and lenders. While the new report uses the same scoring model as in the past, the automotive related information it contains is presented in a new way.

Why the report should help car customers

Instead of having to manually scan the report for automotive information, the new Automotive Profile Summary® provides a snapshot view of a consumer's automotive finance history along with information for each open automotive loan. The information includes the total number of automotive loans, total number of open automotive loans, current monthly payment for all open automotive loans and a delinquency counter for all past-due loans.

In addition, the new profile sorts and prioritizes all automotive loans in the report and lists them at the beginning of the profile, eliminating the need to read through an entire credit report. It also means that dealers won't miss any information.

When will it be available?

According to Experian, the new Automotive Credit Profile will be available to dealers and lenders April 21, 2008.
