*APR denotes Annual Percentage Rate

Rates reflect a .25% Annual Percentage Rate (APR) reduction for Automatic Payment Service and loan amounts up to 100% of the retail value of the vehicle. Your rate will increase if you discontinue Automatic Payment Service. PSECU will charge an additional 2% to the current interest rate when financing a vehicle for more than 100% and up to 120% of the retail value, and an additional 3% to the current interest rate when financing a vehicle for more than 120% and up to 130% of the retail value. PSECU will only finance up to 100% of the retail value of the vehicle for refinance of an existing PSECU vehicle loan. Monthly payment example: 36 monthly payments of $28.86 per $1,000 borrowed at the 2.49% APR or 60 monthly payments of $17.97 per $1,000 borrowed at the 2.99% APR. The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price determines new vehicle values; Kelley Blue Book® or other authorized guides determine used vehicle values. Minimum value is $3,000. Monthly payment examples are representative of the maximum term for the corresponding rate per $1,000 borrowed. Your payment may be different from the examples shown. PSECU makes all final decisions regarding vehicle value and proper rate. Rates, terms, and information are subject to change.
