“A Tier 1 credit score is typically defined as a credit score of 750 or higher, although this may change slightly from lender to lender.
Customers with a Tier 1 credit score can usually secure the best rates on car loans because they’re perceived as low risk compared to other borrowers.
If you’re right below a 750 credit score, it might be in your best interest to keep paying other loans until you reach this level to save money and lower your interest rate.”
