Should I wait until my credit score hits 700 before financing a vehicle?

"I have a credit score around 675, but it's been rising consistently as I pay off old debt.

I want to get a car, and I was wondering if I should just wait until my credit score hits 700. Is this a savvy move?"

“With a score of 675, you should be able to get a car loan with an interest rate under 10%. While a 700 score might help lower your interest rate, it won’t be by that much.
If you have time to wait to get a car, then applying once you have a higher credit score is a smart move. But if you need a vehicle now, you shouldn’t worry about your current credit score.”
