Credit Unions?

I financed a 2005 Toyota Corolla CE @ 17.49%...=/ Even though I have not made my first payment with the bank, which isn't due until Jan 1 2008; Is it possible to refinance the vehicle with a credit union at a lower rate (American Heritage)...

I dont mind the same payments; just shorter term

My monthly payment is $380.31/75 months, which is about $28,000 for a car 1/4 worth what it is...

Luckily Mom pays it!

As for my credit score, it's ranges from 590 - 602 with the three credit companies, which everything is postive...

    Yes, you can try to refinance it with a credit union. It's very likely your current loan does not have any prepayment penalty but you should read your loan documents to be sure. You would have to talk to American Heritage to see what they would charge you.

    Based on your information, you financed about $17,500. If you can get a rate of 7% at American Heritage, you could have a similar payment while reducing your loan term to 4.5 years.

    But your credit scores are very low for someone with no negative marks on your record. Are you sure everything on your report is positive? I would double-check to make sure, because it will affect the interest rate you get from the credit union.
