Best Answer

Buying a new car changes what's called your utilization ratio. This is the amount of debt you to the amount of credit you have available. The lower your ratio, the better it is for your credit score. Additionally, before lenders give you a car loan, they'll want to see your credit score. Checking your score for this reason causes a "hard inquiry" to be placed on your credit report. Hard inquiries can lower your score and remain on your credit report for up to two years.

How would a collection of 230 affect a person with 50000 in available credit and 730 score?

Your credit score can be decreased by having collection accounts listed, a judgment, late payments or if you have too much available credit. If you have that much credit, you would want to contact the credit issuer to lower your credit limit. Your debt should never be more than 35% of the available credit. Timely, consistent payments to your creditors and low credit limits will help increase your credit score.
