Auto Refinancing

Just as homes are refinanced when interest rates drop, vehicle loans also can be refinanced. If you have a high-cost dealer loan... or if your credit has improved since you purchased your vehicle... it's worth taking a look to see if you can save money by refinancing at the Credit Union.

  • Refinancing is available for up to 100% of low Karpower Value.
  • Refinancing terms are based on the remaining loan balance.
  • Minimum amount for refinanced loans is $3,000.
  • Refinancing is for vehicles in California only.
  • Competitive rates

Sorry, we can't refinance existing CSLA-FCU loans.

REFI Savings Really Add up!

If you purchased a $20,000 auto and financed it at 10% on a five-year term, your monthly payment would be about $425. If you refinanced your vehicle at the credit union a year later, perhaps with terms of 7.5%APR on a four-year loan, your monthly payment would be about $405, a $20 per month savings. That's a savings of $950 over the life of the loan! Is refinancing right for you? Just click to view our current rates, then compare your outside-lender's rate and payments to ours by using the loan calculator.

It's EASY to Arrange A REFI Loan

First, complete a Used Vehicle loan application. Under Loan Purpose, indicate "Auto Refinance," and complete all the sections. Be sure to fill in a phone number where we can reach you if we need additional information to process your loan.

Once you have completed your loan application, please mail, fax, or bring in a copy of your most recent paystub and a statement from your current lender, if possible. If you do not have a current loan statement, estimate how much you owe on your car. Please allow 3 business days for processing (although it may take longer without a statement from your current lender).

Car Title Loans

Car title loans are an option for those who have paid off their auto loans, but need cash now. Having trouble getting credit? If your vehicle is paid off, you may be able to qualify for a car title loan based on the value of your vehicle.

To apply for a car title loan, complete the Used Vehicle loan application and note 'car title loan' in the notes section. Once you have completed your loan application, please mail or fax a copy of your most recent paystub
