do you have any other cards that are effecting util.
with a 572 its kind of rough.
what cu are you a part of?
ask them if you put down 4-5k what rate they would offer you?

Thanks for the reply.
I'm with Coastal Federal Credit Union here in North Carolina. I also have a secured credit card with them that I've had for 5 months. Should I bring a copy of my credit report with me to a branch and have them look it over before I apply?

Have you tried to clean up your credit? A few points in your score could help a lot.

I have, I paid off three collection accounts in June although they all turned down my GW letters. Are there any lenders that would approve me other than Santander? I wouldn't particulary mind a higher apr as I would eventually refinance.

I would try your CU first. They seem to be more lenient.

I would just go with Santander, thats probably your only shot.
Santander is a last resort, not a first try.
There was a time I had scores in the mid to high 500's and had a loan from Wells Fargo Dealer Services at 10% and Ally at 10%. Only go to Santander if you absolutely have to.
