Can I bring my own credit report to give to lenders for a car loan?

Can I bring my own credit report to a meeting with a lender so they don't have to pull my credit? I want to buy a house in the near future, and I don't want a hard pull for a car loan to damage my credit right before shopping for a mortgage.

“Bringing your own credit report won’t matter. A dealer is going to pull your credit for a new car anyways; it’s unavoidable.
However, you should still check your credit report using a monitoring tool like Credit Karma before getting a loan just to make sure there are no surprises.
By doing so, you can also get familiar with rates for your particular credit score.”
