Do mortgages and auto loans affect our credit scores the same way as credit card debts? I think they should have less negative impact since they are collateralized by the house or the car. If I’m right, that means if I get the same interest rate for an auto loan as for borrowing from a credit card when buying a car, I should go for an auto loan, right? Are there other things I should factor in to decide from which I borrow? Thank you for your help!
