Has anyone heard of this, FI and I are buying a car this weekend, and we are paying cash for it, (writing a personal check for it). The dealership advised us that they would accept our personal check, but that they would have to do a credit check. This makes no sense to me, as we are not financing the vehicle. We would be fine with them calling our bank to verify funds, but we aren't thrilled about our credit having to be pulled for nothing. Has anyone heard of this before? It just doesn't seem right to me.
