Which would be better to buy first? My wife seems to think that they don't take house loans into consideration when looking at your credit to buy a car. And the vice versa was true. Even though I worked at a car dealership and know that they DO look at stuff like that (sometimes even moreso than your credit scores) she still won't believe me, and says we need to buy the house first and then go the next week for a car, as if they're just handing them out without checking that shit.
