Rated 5 out of 5 by ANN from This is the BEST financial institution! Repeatedly, DCU has saved me money, keeping me informed of up-to-date various features as well as protection mechanisms. I recently referred someone who inquired of DCU when using my debit card; he was was looking for a GREAT financial place for his money and I was happy to forward him to DCU!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arun from Best customer experience so far in the US I was looking for an auto-loan and got it sanctioned without any hassles as opposed to my experiences with other banks. Staff is extremely helpful who do not hesitate to go beyond the call of duty to ensure customer delight and satisfaction giving several options and willing to extend their best support. I never visited the bank. Opened the account online and spoke to the members over the phone and got all that I wanted. When my credit score/history wasn't showing up from one source they looked up the other source and gave me best rates possible. Excellent service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mylo's mistress from Excellent customer service I recently transferred accounts from two other banks to DCU, and having found their customer service to be excellent, I didn't hesitate to then finance my new car as well. It was the simplest, fastest process with the best rate imaginable: couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob64 from Swift and hassle free loan application from home PC I experienced the finest car loan application process of my life. I opted for the electronic application route and enjoyed a filing to approval process in just a few hours all from the comfort of my home office. Now that is what I call customer focus! The car loan application process has been perfected!
