Moving your car loan to DCU could cut your payment

In today's economy, every dollar that you save counts. Wouldn't you like to reduce the monthly cost of owning a car? With Auto Refinancing, DCU could lower your monthly payment.

How does Auto Refinancing work?

We can usually save you money one or two ways...

  1. Lower your interest rate – We often find people were given a higher rate than they deserved at another institution or dealership – especially on used cars.
  2. Spread out your remaining balance – We can spread out what's left on your loan so each monthly payment is smaller.

Whether you opt for a smaller monthly payment or to pay off your loan faster, you can save a bundle on your monthly expenses.

Let us evaluate your current loan

We'll look at...

  1. The make and model of the vehicle
  2. The remaining loan balance
  3. The current monthly payment and interest rate
  4. The original number of payments and how many you have left
  5. The name, address, telephone number, and loan account number for your current lender (most of this information will be in your loan coupon book or statement)

From that, we'll be able to estimate how much you'll save. Your actual savings will depend on your personal credit history, account relationship, and repayment method.

You can always expect an honest evaluation from DCU

If we can't reduce your payment, we'll let you know. Our vision is that All members achieve their financial goals. We want to ensure you get a good deal...even if you already have it. It's worth a few moments to find out how much we can help you.

How can we offer such a good deal?

Because our auto loans are already a great value...

  • New or used vehicles at the same low rates – Car dealers and most institutions often charge you more for used – some 20% or more.
  • Borrow for cars, trucks, or vans – Borrow to buy your next vehicle or refinance the one you drive.
  • Great rates and affordable payments – Finance up to 84 months. The longer the loan term, the lower your monthly payment.
  • Borrow up to 120% of Price – Qualified borrowers can finance up to 120% of NADA retail book value or 120% of the purchase price – whichever is less, PLUS DCU GAP and DCU Warranty. DCU will only finance over 100% when it's DCU's GAP and Warranty, not dealer add-ons.
  • Save with Relationship benefits and electronic payment – Save on rates when you qualify for Relationship benefits on your DCU Checking Account and make payments electronically (payment by transfer in Online Banking, Mobile Banking, Easy Touch Telephone Teller, DCU ATM, or internal DCU automatic transfers). Add 0.50% to rate for other payment methods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Easy Refinancing my car loan was so easy, I was able to process everything on-line, even setting up a new account. The customer representative that I spoke with to finalize everything was very knowledgeable and helpful. The rate was great, and is going to save me 30.00 per month and I only extended my loan by 6 months. I highly recommend using DCU to refinance your car loan

Does applying for a 2nd chance auto loan affect your credit score and/or put a hard inquiry on your credit?

Asked by: Gwen
Any time you request a "loan" from most institution they will hard pull you, even those that say they soft pull, eventually will make a hard pull upon approving the loans. Some may qualify you with a soft pull but still will do a hard when you go through with the actual loan. Every inquiry and new account will affect your credit because that's just how it is designed by the Bureaus and not set by the banks. Depending on a lot of factors the amount of affect will depends if you have superior credit it may not do much but if you have weak credit it may affect it much more until it ages and you pay on it on time.

There is no limit, but DCU checks the history of the car that you wish to buy before issuing loan amount.
