The key point is your previous auto history.  I don't see a problem but I'd also suggest that you look into GW letters for those paid baddies. 

 

Good luck!

Re: Will I be disappointed?. Info included

Should definitely be okay. I'd maybe start by applying to Capital One and seeing what they say. Also your auto enhanced will likely be much higher than regular FICO so the dealer should, I'm guessing, see 650+. That should get you <7% generally (actually 3-7% ideally) at the dealer.

You should be just fine and DONT apply anywhere else like capital one (sorry poster) but OP is looking at a 2013 which is probably certified which would qualify for special APR's through Hyundai and I too bet your auto enhanced fico that they will pull will be higher then your credit score you listed and you should be able to push for a tier 2 or 3 and be under 5%

Well you guys were right, and I was not disappointed!  Went to Hyundai yesterday afternoon and I got financed through Brand Bank at 5% (good call Credit Addict).  They showed my score at 676!!!  

 

Lexie- I will definitely keep on with the GWs for all those COs!

Likely an auto enhanced fico. A boost from your previous loan history. Congrats
