Looking to refi following a Ch7 BK

I have a perfect car payment history, since 2000, with one exception.  I was 42 days past due on my car loan with a local CU and they repoed my car!  The CU had pulled a credit report, and my financial picture became clear.  I was on a fast track toward a Ch7 BK, and they worried I would end up rolling my car into it so they took it back before I had the chance.  Never been late or had ANY other issues with a car payment, EVER!!!  Too bad I had planned to maintain current payments and KEEP that car through the BK process.  Stupid CU.

 

Anyhoo...

 

Following the repo, I could only find financing from Santander, and am currently financed with them at something like 26%.  I financed with them before filing my Ch7 BK, and reaffirmed the debt during the BK process.  My BK was discharged April 2012.  I have maintained a perfect payment history on this car since  I acquired it in April 2011.

 

Santander has started to report to the bureau's again, which is great.  However, I am TIRED of paying the interest rate that I am!  So I am looking to refi this puppy with another company.  Only problem is- I haven't a CLUE which companies will touch a refi following BK!  Google research led me to 1) Santander and 2) Roadloans.  These are the same company and I am currently financed with Santander, so that doesn't help me in the least.

 

Anyone have suggestions on who to apply to in order to obtain an auto refi following Ch7 BK?  I could really use some "been there, done that" advice as I really can't afford a bunch of credit rejections.  Help?!?
