The difference between PLUS scores and FICO scores

Dear Experian,

What is the difference between a “Plus” score and a “FICO” score? On a June credit report from Experian my Plus score was 790 (330-830), while my FICO score with Experian was 889 (300-850). I realize both scores are excellent, but I would like to understand it further.

There is more than one FICO score

Dear Experian,

I recently tried to get a car loan and was told that my Auto FICO score was low. I found this strange because I know my FICO score is in the high six hundreds. The dealer explained that the difference is an Auto FICO score is different than a regular FICO score. Is this accurate?
