Rated 5 out of 5 by from Auto Loan Approval I logged into my account, applied for an auto loan and instantly received an approval! PSECU has been my go to for all loans for the last several years!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Car loan rates not competitive For many years I have been very disappointed in the loan rates of PSECU considering it is a credit Union and it's rates should be lower than a bank.. I purchased my last three cars from a bank because the bank's rates were much lower than PSECUs. I have carried a FICO score of over 800 for many years and each time I applied for a loan the banks have beat PSECU with much lower rates for people with high FICO scores. I purchased a car in 2005 and the bank beat PSECUs rate by 2.5%. I then purchased a car in 2013 and PSECU offered 4.5% but I got a loan thru a bank for 1%. I recently purchased a new car in Aug of 2019 and the PSECU rate was 3.49%, but the car dealer gave me 0% because of my high fico score of 837. Now I don’t expect PSECU to give me 0% but I feel they should offer better rates for their members with higher credit scores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Auto loan I have been a customer with PSECU for a little while now. i have gotten a loan for a jeep and refinanced the loan on my car with such an ease of process it was fantastic. just the other day i got another auto loan on a new vehicle. the loan officer that i was talking to talked to me for almost 50 minutes to answer all my questions explain to me about how if i finance more then the value of the vehicle my interest rate would go up by 2% or 3% depending on amount over. This helped me decide if i wanted to do a down payment or not and I will have the check for it by the end of this week to go get my new vehicle. I have always had a great experience with PSECU loans and their normal customer service for my other accounts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed with Loan Process I have been a member of PSECU since 1986; for the most part, the credit union has treated me pretty well. HOWEVER, I recently applied for an auto loan and besides having to provide some additional paperwork, I finally got an email approving my loan, but it does not provide any email link or name of department to contact to provide the final pieces of information they require to cut the check The lack of this information now requires me to go through multiple steps on their Self-Service telephone system to find the right person to talk with. NOT a VERY member-friendly service! Come on PSECU, separate yourselves from banks who treat their customers this way and become more customer-friendly to your members.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed - Process Changes I have had a relationship with PSECU since 2011, including multiple auto loans. Something has changed in recent months as I am now being denied for a new loan to replace a car that I'm having trouble with. My credit score has improved since my last approval, but my loan was declined. Also, it took 2 full days to get a decision. I have other accounts that are in good standing and money in my accounts to show I can repay the loan. Really disappointed in PSECU's lending and approval process.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible loan process time I've been a member for over 30 years and used to finance everything through PSECU. For the past few years there seems to have been a change of hands in the loan department. It took 5 days to approve a simple car loan, but it's too late, I already sealed the deal with another bank via the car dealership and it was at a lower rate. Who do we need to vote out to get this department back to it's former glory?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service as Usual PSECU rates are competitive as usual. PSECU loan department personnel are quick to answer any questions and walk you through the process. Online application is simple; just remember to undo any credit report freezes you may have in place. I've been financing vehicles through PSECU for over 20 years without a problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from literally great except interest rate almost double i had the title, taxes and fees tacked onto the loan when i purchased the vehicle and it raised my interest rate from 3.49 to 5.49. This is not properly explained and the way that the process goes, its easily overlooked until you get your first bill and psecu says it went up 2% and you cant go back to change it.
