Credit union. I have used 3 different credit unions in the past. Got my wives Hyundai at 2.49% and my truck at 3.25%.

Like Big Laing said, credit union, I use Georgias Own and they have beat the socks off of the rest and they treat me better and offer way better service than the bank I have been with for 30 years, credit union is the way to go.

I can only speak for the one I use but yes, open a checking account with $5 in it and they will process your loan. I opened my account and got a loan in less than an hour and they didnt know me from Jobs' turkey. Thats why Im leaving my "hometown bank".

just shop around, credit unions are usually best for loan, but try your bank too. might be able to get a good loan. never heard to shop around for the best deal.

I had talked with my credit union and they had agreed to 1.75% for a 2 year old hyundai for my wife. While buying the car, the finance guy said that I had a great rate but then he asked me to give him a chance to beat it. He called around and wound up getting me 1.7%....from another credit union. So yeah, credit unions are the way to go. Also, they will usually lower your rate if you set up some kind of payroll deduction into the account where your payments are being drawn from. That may be good for another quarter or half percent.
