New & Used Auto Loans
When it comes to new cars, low cost financing from your credit union plus the dealer’s best cash price is usually the way to go. But new car or used, you’re likely to find that the best rates you can get are right here at TCU. Your actual rate is determined by the length of loan and your credit qualifications. If you have us pre-approve your loan at no cost, you essentially become a cash buyer, which is helpful when you negotiate price. Whatever you do, be sure to check with us before you accept other financing. There’s a good chance we can beat it!
Get TCU Financing Right at the Auto Dealer!
You can get low cost TCU financing right at most dealerships! All you have to do is ask for it. The dealer can arrange your credit union loan at the same time you buy your car. Enjoy the convenience of 1-stop shopping! Most auto dealers in our area participate in this program. Visit the AutoSMART web site to locate specific dealerships.

Refinance from Another Lender: Get 1% Off Your Current Rate!
We’ll take 1% off the rate you’re paying now when you refinance your auto loan from another lender, or we’ll give you the lowest rate you qualify for, whichever is lower. (Cannot be lower than 1% off the lowest rate we offer.) Refinancing usually saves hundreds or even thousands of dollars in interest over the life of most late model car loans. Contact us to figure what your savings will be.
Mechanical Breakdown Protection
Instead of a costly extended warranty sold by the dealer, consider Mechanical Breakdown Protection (MBP) for your vehicle, which we make available through Allied Solutions. Click here to get an instant quote and learn more about the benefits of having Mechanical Breakdown Protection.
Affordable Credit Insurance to Protect Your Family
As your financial partner, we also want to protect the investment you make in a credit union loan. We offer optional Credit Disability and Credit Life Insurance that makes loan payments for you if you are disabled, or pays off the loan if you meet an untimely demise. Coverage is available for a nominal cost that can be included in your monthly payments. It’s one less financial stress for your family if the worst should happen. We also offer Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP), which makes up any difference between what you owe on your vehicle and what it’s worth, if the vehicle is totaled.
Each year our members with consumer loans have the opportunity to defer a loan payment during the holiday season. Our "Skip-A-Payment" program gives participants extra cash at the time of year when it’s needed most.
Teamster Strike Policy
Look to your credit union for help in the event of a Teamsters strike or lock-out. We have the most liberal loan extension policy in the nation, up to six months for all but real estate loans (and we’ll even modify those, when feasible).
