Anyone have a clue what your credit score needs to be to quality for the "AHFC Super Preferred credit tier".

Super Preferred? Really?! wow

Edit: Google says "TransUnion score 720+" ...

Honda is going to have to do better than that if they really want to start rolling some units...I'd sit and wait awhile now that Toyota and others are scrambling to come up with sweetheart deals.

We are approved for the 1.9 or the 3.9%. Just no 09's to buy. We have until 12-12-08 on the paperwork from HFS. Thought we would get pre-approved and ready to go as soon as they showed up. Guess we can redo it?

makes sense!!

I believe super preferred is around 710-720+ FICO

I got the same deal back in 2007 when I got mine. My CR is in the low 700s

We just bought our 2008 last month with 0.9% financing for 5 years. I have no idea what my credit score is, but we thought it was a good deal. I was happy to get an '08 and the financing deal was a bonus over an '09 (plus we got a sunroof lol:D).

By chance would you mind sharing what kind of deal you negotiated? Looking to buy myself and was curious how desperate they are to move inventory.
Thanks
