  • Online calculators. Take a look and see what you can afford and how soon you can pay off the loan.
  • Loan Pre-approval. You’ll enjoy a buyer’s advantage once you arrange loan pre-approval because dealers will know you are free to take the best offer. It also makes it easier to shop within your budget.
  • We know people. In fact, we’ve arranged deals with several partners to offer you discounted programs including auto insurance, mechanical breakdown insurance, and GAP insurance.  Visit our Member Benefits page for more details.
