First-Time Car Buyer’s Loan

Whether you’re coming of age to drive or coming into your own financially, you may find it difficult to obtain a car loan. That’s because most first-time car buyers have little to no credit history, making some financial institutions shy away from loaning money to you. At Avadian Credit Union, we feel this should be an exciting first purchase, and we want to make sure it is. With our first-time car buyer’s loan, we can help you establish positive credit while getting you in a car you can finally call yours.

Our first-time car buyer’s loan features:

  • Terms up to 60 months with a rate of 6.99% APR for all borrowers*. Model year must be 2004 or newer.
  • Down payment of $1,000 cash (must be true cash down)
  • Pre-approval before you shop
  • Pre-Approved Check that you can take to the dealers to purchase your car
  • Convenient loan approval at participating Avadian dealerships

Plus, we offer optional features to help you feel secure with your loan:

  • Optional Guaranteed Auto Protection to cover you in case of an accident or theft
  • Optional Extended Warranty with our Auto Exam Program to protect your vehicle from costly mechanical breakdowns
  • Optional low-cost credit life and disability insurance (payment protection) - Sometimes events or circumstances happen that are beyond our control, such as a death or disability. When these situations arise, they may cause added stress for you or a loved one when it comes to paying your loan. For this reason, we offer optional payment protection. All of our vehicle loans offer Credit Life Insurance and Credit Disability Insurance.

To qualify for this loan, you must be 19 years of age or older or 18 and married with no previous history of a car loan (or car trade). Your monthly payment may not exceed 12% of your monthly gross income (proof of income required) or $300, whichever is less.
