List of Credit Unions (or Banks) that offer auto-refinancing...

Just wondering what Credit Unions that offer auto-refinancing AND do not care much about having a "relationship" with theme. I'm wanting to re-finance my auto loan early next year, but I do not want to allocate my $ to a CU.


I want a lower interest rate, so that's why I'm looking to Credit Unions. Bank recommendations are welcomed also, I notice Band of America has favorable rate terms; does anyone know how difficult it may be to get BofA's low interest rate terms that they are advertising?


Is this realistic?

Since credit unions are member owned you are going to need at least a minimum share account to apply for a loan with whichever one you choose. When we talk about having a further business relationship making things easier it is merely anecdotal evidence among forum members and not a published part of their policies. All or most will allow you to apply for credit products either at membership application or immediately after approval.


As to being able to provide any useful recommendations to places for you to refinance we would need at least the information on your current auto loan and balance, type of vehicle and your credit information (FICO score if known, any negative history especially on auto loan, length of employment, etc.). Also if you have any near term credit goals like new cards or a mortgage that might impact the advice you are offered.

Best financial advice I ever got: "Just imagine what an adult would do and do that."

A big part of what you want to do will be determined by your FICO score.  Allocating $ to a credit union to become a member is not a big deal, as it is usually $5-$15 to open a savings account, that you can get back later if you ever close the account.  Why are you waiting until the 1st of the year to refi, what is preventing it now?
