Do I need to fill out a credit application with the dealership if I don't use their financing?
I'm buying a car at a local dealership with a personal check and a check I got from my lender. When I arrived to pay for the vehicle, the dealer wanted me to sign a credit application. The salesman said it was standard procedure as part of the Patriot Act. Do I need to fill out a credit application if I'm paying a mix of cash and my own financing?
