Taking the plunge! Interest rate check!

I've been wrestling with the idea of getting a BRZ for about a month now. I finally decided that it was just plain stupid to have to keep a car around for days that aren't perfectly dry. I'm going to pull the trigger on an ST in the next few days. I was hoping a recent buyer could tell me what kind of interest rate they were able to get from Ford. I can't find any info on ford.com about current rates.

ford credit says 0% for 60 months or $1000 customer cash. That rate or incentive may or may not be available on the ST, check with your dealer there.

shop around and do some number crunching too, I was able to get 2.29% from a local credit union.

0% would be sweet. But, the fine print on that offer says it excludes the ST.

USAA & Air Academy are offering rates as low as 1.49% 60 months O.A.C.
I believe it drops to .75% between 36 & 48 but I'm not a USAA member so I'm not sure.

I had my car financed with penfed at 1.49% for 60 months. Not too shabby.

penfed is the way to go if you don't have easy access to a credit union in your area
