Credit unions are recognized for their low auto loan rates and are experts when it comes to financing.
While car dealerships are the experts in selling cars, credit unions have no vested interest in the price of the vehicle and can focus on helping you obtain a loan at the lowest possible rate.
Already financed at a dealership? Yes, you can refinance a dealership loan and credit unions often have better rates!

What happens if your car is stolen or totaled? Most times, your insurance company will only pay the current market value. Our Guaranteed Asset Protection program is designed to protect you against financial loss in the event your car is stolen or declared a total loss in an accident. GAP will pay the difference between the balance of your loan, and the value of your car (max 125% LTV), and will even pay your insurance deductible up to $1,000. As an added bonus, GAP will also pay you $1,000 toward your replacement vehicle.2
