Because they don't pay any federal income tax.

When I occasionally buy cars from private parties, even when I have the cash, I typically finance through my credit union...which helps ensure all documentation is in place, then I pay off the bank loan. Quick, easy, and worry free. I think Credit Unions are not for profit ventures, too. I use Wescom CU. Dave911

Careful. Many credit unions are NOT FDIC insured. So IF they fold the fed is NOT there to guarantee your savings. FDIC covers up to $100k (or so).

Most Credit unions have their own association that insures much like the FDIC. It is thru CUNA Mutual in Madison WI. They have done very well over the years in keeping the credit unions solvent when they run into an issue by helping the struggling CU get purchased by a stronger entity.

It is VERY rare that the actual customer will ever see a loss. (in most states, The credit union is required to have the insurance and bonds etc in order to get their charter.)

Anytime you make a loan, rather it be through a bank, CU or private party, due dillagence is the key, and have a good repo company when things go bad...

I know a great repo company, OK selfish plug!!!!!
