None of those CUs offer balloon loans, how is it applicable?

Read above? You said there are no base rates better than 5.75%, he showed you there are. Nothing to do with balloons. That’s how I understood your post.

Preowned BMW finance is offering 5.49% for 36mo.

About the same as the return rate on a 36mo CD.

Looks like Fedchoice has raised rates by .25%

Fyi, the Fresno Educational Employee CU (EECU) has a promotional rate of 4.89% up to 72-months. This is valid till 12/31 for new auto loan (2020 or higher).
