BTW, that's just an observation. I'm a strong believer in making a bank work for you and not the other way around, so I'd recommend you switch to get a free account elsewhere. Just don't kid yourself into believing that you've developed a relationship by depositing a few bucks with a bank or credit union. Sometimes banks will give you special treatment if you carry a huge balance; but that's not you.

Honestly I don't believe I'll ever get a good deal on a car unless I stay with this credit union. Nissan likes to $$$screw big time. I saved $10K by buying thru AZfederal granted that they don't do biweekly pmts like Sunwest Federal credit union anymore.
