1.7 AAOA She has TU673 --EQ 656 --EXP 654all three are ficos. 1 charge off from 4.5 years ago. No lates. No bks. just a charge off for 657$ with a $0 balance. UTIL is around 36%.

Some, even somewhat modest improvement (decreased reporting UTI to <30%, slightly higher scores...) could open up several better options for more consumer friendly terms and a wider array of lenders who may approve, IMO.  if not possible might recommend an amex charge and a CU to your liking (some goodies:  NFCU (if eligible), AFCU, DCU...)  USAA may be a good option, especially if eligible for full membership but they may be looking for a slightly stronger profile for a limited member.
