Vehicle Loans

At BFCU, we offer our members competitive vehicle loan rates, with various terms to fit your budget.  Whether you are buying a new or used vehicle, we will make the process of purchasing your new car or motorcycle simple and efficient. 

BFCU offers Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) at a lower cost than most dealerships.  GAP protection will cover you in the event your vehicle is totaled and your primary insurance company settlement does not cover your outstanding loan balance.   


BFCU Lien Holder Code: 


**Direct Deposit Discounted Rate: The ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE on your loan will reflect a discount of 0.50% if you have:

  1. A checking account with BFCU;
  2. A savings account with BFCU;
  3. Direct Deposit from your employer to the BFCU checking or savings account;
  4. Automatic loan payments from the BFCU checking or savings account that the Direct Deposit is set up with;

Your ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE will increase by 0.50% if you discontinue Direct Deposit to your BFCU savings or checking account. Any increase will take the form or more payments of the same amount. EXAMPLE: If your loan was $10,000 at 6% for 120 months and the rate increased to 6.50% after 3 years, you would have to make 4 additional payments.
