Tesla Auto Loan....got denied by 3 different credit unions

Exactly as title says, It's delivery time soon, applied to credit unions after paying off all credit cards, 710,708,713. Get all the way to the amount they can offer, and boom, the last one today said that they denied me based off of credit history. Which is what all the others ones denied me straight away with. 

 

I looked, in the past 2 years, i've only ever had a single 30 day late payment...

 

So I looked even futher into accounts that were closed....2016....had a card, had SUPER financial issues from 2015-16 so it got paid late and they settled it at the end of that year...

 

We can offer around 10% down on the Model S...but now it's like we are gonna have to cancel the order completely.

 

Such a bummer. Any Ideas?

 

EDIT: Oh forgot to add. Yes, We can afford the monthly payments even at fully financed....and then some...timing just didnt line up properly (Delivery date was MUCH sooner than anticipated) to put anymore down.

Tesla will surely come through for you. If there’s one thing car “dealerships” will do, it’s get you in their car. Maybe Tesla is different though. Have you tried any of the banks where you have CCs? 

Discover It: 19.7k
Amex ED: 18k
Citi DC: 7.7k
Fidelity Visa: 2k
Apple Card: 1.5k
