MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: So if you've read any of my posts, I originally went through USAA when I had 4K (620 EQ) in credit debt and was still approved for 25K (no budge) at 4.59% for 72 months. Well I decided not to take it and just pay off my credit cards and try again when it reported to my score/report. Well it finally reported and my score jumped to 688 EQ. I called USAA again and asked for $34K (tax and registration included) and they said no..only 20K at 12.99% (!!!!) Turns out they weren't calculating in my husbands special pays and after that, offered 29K but still 12.99%. I asked why such a huge interest rate difference from before when my credit score obviously jumped and debt became less. Guy agreed with me but had no idea why. So I applied with NFCU (became members last week) and they approved us for the full 34K in less than 10 minutes. I go pick up my check tomorrow and brand new ford edge in the morning ))) Everyone was right, NFCU is awesome!
Congrats on your victory over the APR. I still do not understand why many people with 675+ keep on going with USAA and get a 4.99%+, when they can go with NFCU and get a 1.79-2.99% with the same score! It's a no brainer! Once again congrats and enjoy you new vehicle!
This thread is very useful. Congrats to everyone

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: First time buyer, and I happy to get financed at with this rate given the dings and pings in my credit. This was the lowest rate I was offered (Roadloans, Credit Union, & recently denied by Chase, Honda & CapOne for loans). I figure in a year or so when I have developed a payment histroy and cleaned up my CR some more-I will try to refi at a much more decent rate. Thus far happy and very content.
How much did you have to put down?

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: not thrilled about the APR but Carmax had offered me 24% on a used version of the same model with 7k on the car. Only went to dealership to test drive car, ended up getting a good deal and will be refinancing in about 6 months, just have to pay down credit cards since that is the only reason that my score is low.
Heh seriously congrats, I would've adored to get that rate with my own 551 Auto EX pull; seriously that dealer did you right, though admittedly I did get a pretty easy refinance 8 months later down to 6%, so likely once your CC debt is paid and you have positive history on the auto loan (6+ months) you likely can do better depending where your scores wind up.
