I bought a used ford from a dealer a few weeks ago. They set me up with a local credit union as it was a lower rate then ford credit wanted.

I would suggest a credit union too. They usually have commercial loan divisions but thy don't advertise much and to be honest I have found the people to be inexperienced on the vehicle side of things. It certainly is not a easy as walking into a dealership where they handle everything in a couple of hours but well worth the time invested.

That is how I have purchased my last 2 vehicles and I have saved a bundle. Low rates and no sales tax here in AZ when buying from a private party. They let you purchase up to 5-yr old vehicles and they loan up to 80% of blue book. I got pre qualified for an amount then went shopping. My last rig was a 04 Fuso cab over dump truck with about 30-K miles for 20-K out the door, it was a diesel too. Check credit unions.
