Car Buying Information

Are you looking to buy a car or truck but want to do some research first? Well you have come to the right place. We have assembled a whole host of services to help you get the most for your money, with as little hassle as possible. We all know how difficult and nerve racking a vehicle purchase can be. Hopefully, this information will make it easy.

Your first step should be to get pre-approved for a loan, so you will know your buying power. We have made the process easy through our on-line loan application. Now you are ready to go car shopping!

Got a used car you are interested in? Find out what its worth at the NADA Vehicle Pricing and Information Site. You can get detailed information about the car you are looking at by obtaining a CARFAX Vehicle History Report . This report tells you about a vehicles' history, lemon law information can report odometer tampering, and even whether the vehicle is a rebuild, salvage or water damaged vehicle!

Buying a Car? Take a friend along!
It's Free to Members!

Take Auto Advisors along for your next new or used car purchase. It's available only through your credit union! They help you cut through the frustration and confusion of buying a new vehicle. Once you work with an Auto Advisor, you'll never shop for a car the same way again.

They eliminate the stress.
They do the leg-work for you, eliminating the visit to the showroom, the high pressure sales tactics, the waiting around, and having to drive from lot to lot. And remember, when you go to a dealer alone, you're setting yourself up for an expensive trip to the finance office. A good deal involves much more than price. Get educated and let an advisor protect you from the variety of ways dealers add money to your vehicle purchase.

Here's how they help.
First and foremost, they represent you. They only work for credit union members. They educate you on the car buying process, and ensure that you get the vehicle you want at a price you want to pay and full value for your trade. And that's not all!

    * Straight talk on cost, financing, rebates, incentives and trade-ins
    * Hassle-free shopping - no negotiating with car dealers
    * Best purchase and lease options and extended warranties.
    * Listings of an extensive dealer network for all makes and models - new or used.
    * Consultation for the entire transaction.
    * Competitive vehicle pricing including top dollar value for trade-in vehicles.
    * Help with credit union paperwork and financing options.

So don't delay. Make an appointment with the Auto Advisor BEFORE you go shopping and save yourself time, money and hassle!
