Loans, Loans, Loans!
- New or Used Vehicles
Whether you are buying a new or used vehicle, CUVT charges the same low rates! Did you obtain a loan from a dealer or other financial institution? No problem! We can help you to transfer the balance to the credit union. We are experts at vehicle loan balance transfers and make it easy to have your loan where you want it—at your credit union!
New or used programs are available for cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, campers, aircraft, RVs, ATVs, personal watercraft, snowmobiles, tractors and more.
We now offer GAP Insurance—only $250 for most vehicles and better than the dealer. If your vehicle is totaled, your auto insurance will only pay the veicle’s current value, and since vehicles can depreciate rapidly, you may still owe more on your vehicle loan than you receive. That’s your “gap”, and our Guaranteed Asset Protection insurance covers the gap, covers up to $1,000 of your insurance deductible, and even gives you a further $1,000 toward your replacement vehicle financed through the credit union.

Bonus: Balance transfers have a rate of only 6.99% for the life of the balance transferred!
Please Note: Lines of credit of up to $5,000 are available with VISA classic. It is our belief that this is a sufficient level of credit for most persons.
