It depends on where you were when you originally financed. Has your credit improved a good bit since you originally financed? Remember most lenders will use a version of FICO scores. It will depend on the lender, but 700+ FICO may be a starting point to getting a better rate, but it really depends on where you were credit-wise when you financed before. I would do some Google searching for lenders with good reviews and then check to see where your FICO scores are. And remember, more than scores go into a lender's decision, your overall credit profile is just as important.
