Be a Smart Car Buyer

For many, spring is the time when their fancies turn to thoughts of a new vehicle. Don’t let the stars in your eyes VW Beetleprevent YOU from making a wise carbuying decision. Be aware of dealer financing consequences before you sign on the dotted line! By getting your car loan at the Credit Union, you’ll be able to take advantage of hassle-free financing and you’ll avoid being talked into financing more than you bargained for.

Borrowing from the Credit Union has these great advantages over dealer:

Based on your qualifications, you get the best rate we can give you from the start. No “best rate” quote and then a higher one offered when your credit report comes back.

If a co-signer is required, you’ll know who’s responsible for repayment of the loan at your signing, and ultimately
whose name is on the title and who’s getting a good credit rating for payments made.

No extended warranty “requirement” to get the loan. You may choose to purchase the warranty from the dealer, but it will not be a condition for getting your loan.

Likewise, there is no credit life insurance “requirement” to get a Credit Union vehicle loan. NPFCU provides
up to $15,000 loan protection coverage at no charge to you.

You should be able to purchase your vehicle as though you were using “cash”. If you’re not financing through the dealer, they can’t make adjustments to the purchase price and say you “don’t qualify” for the lower price.

You’ll probably wind up financing less because you can negotiate your deal. Expect to pay no more than the MSRP and refuse to pay ADM (Additional Dealer Markup) fees or Dealer Prep charges added on to the MSRP (often the Dealer Prep is already included in sticker price.)

Be smart! Get your next new vehicle loan from the Credit Union! You get the best deal from the people you can trust.
