This article refers to Kelley Blue Book pricing on 2 occasions. If members visit Kelley's web-site they will have offers to finance & refinance with Capital One Auto Finance. Other products are also available that will compete with the credit union. Vehicle crash test ratings are also questionable since NBC rigged a General Motors truck to explode a few years ago on one of their phony programs. The best advice for credit unions is to shop for a link to their web-site that doesn't promote products the offer, such as GAP, and never to link with sites that offer financing through competitive sources. NADA offers financing through E-Loan, Kelley through Capital One and through Lending Tree. The best advice to give any used car purchaser is to have the vehicle inspected by a mechanic of their choice.
