How do you buy a car with a loan from a credit union?
Once you’ve settled on a credit union, use the following steps to get the best rate on your loan:
- Figure out your budget. Decide what you can afford before you attempt to finance any car purchase.
- Obtain your credit score.
- Apply for an auto loan.
- Pick your car.
- Negotiate your purchase price.
How do I qualify for a credit union loan?
To apply for a loan, you need to become a member first. Many credit unions offer both unsecured and secured personal loans. Both types of loans carry fixed rates, and your exact rate depends on your credit score, credit history, income and debts. A low credit score alone won’t disqualify you from getting a loan.
