Looking to refinance?

If you have equity in your vehicle and you want to borrow additional funds, let’s talk about refinancing. Based on our current rates and terms, we charge no additional fee for this. However, you will need to pay to file the lien on your title.

When financing an auto loan, our credit union will place a lien on the vehicle as collateral until the loan is paid in full. Loans for new cars usually have a term of three to seven years, while for used cars, it’s usually two to four years.

Dealerships sometimes offer low loan or lease rates on certain models. These are usually promotions underwritten by the manufacturer in order to boost the sale of that model. Sometimes you have to meet conditions in order to qualify; for example, you may need to:

  • Make a larger down-payment
  • Agree to a shorter term of loan
  • Meet a higher credit rating
  • Pay an extra fee to participate

If this option makes sense for you, great! But if you don’t qualify for a promotional rate, or if you want to obtain financing from Clearwater Credit Union for any other reason, just ask your dealer. In many cases, you can apply for a loan with us right from the dealership.

If you’re purchasing a used vehicle from a private party, we encourage you to do due diligence:

  • Research the value of the vehicle from independent resources, like NADA or Carfax.
  • Get a pre-purchase inspection from a mechanic you trust to identify any issues and prepare you to negotiate more effectively.
  • Gather info on the insurance and maintenance costs you’ll be facing, and budget for them appropriately.
