NFCU auto loan question..

Does anyone have any experience with obtaining an auto loan through NFCU after a bankruptcy? I was planning on waiting 1yr post bk7 to apply and was just wondering. Thanks!

Wow! Congrats on the approval, not a bad rate to be so fresh out of BK. My BK was discharge 10/2012 as well :smileyhappy:  I included a Wells Fargo cc in my BK so I am not too sure how that will go :/

Re: NFCU auto loan question..

I agree that applying with NFCU should be first and then try subprime lenders as a backup. Prestige is a good first lender to try if NFCU falls through. Good Luck! :-)

Re: NFCU auto loan question..

Awesome! I am going to wait until I have a one year relationship built up with NFCU before applying for the loan. Hoping for the best! This Nov will be one year post NFCU secured card opening.

Re: NFCU auto loan question..

NFCU wants to see 6 months auto history usually before granting an auto loan after BK, however an installment loan may help with that - such as a secured share loan.  IF you get a subprime auto loan now, and try refinancing with NFCU after 6 payments have posted - that is almost a guaranteed approval.

Re: NFCU auto loan question..

Thank you very much for that info. I have two paid perfect history auto loans on my credit, BUT I also included a desert schools auto loan in BK. Wonder if that would help.. I will still try them first while shopping. :smileyhappy:

Re: NFCU auto loan question..

Post Bankruptcy, if the two were before it won't matter to NFCU since they do not use auto-enhanced scores for auto loans.

 

Now on the other hand, those two if before the BK will help your score when a dealer runs it.  

 

For example: NFCU turned me down 3 months post-bk with a 600 score an told me, 6 months post-bk auto history.  Now, the same day I went to Toyota, and they pulled 650 auto-enhanced score, because I had 3 perfect paid auto loans before bankruptcy.  Walked away with 0% on a 2013 Toyota and my BK was barely 3 months old - they didn't even flinch or ask about it, it was like the BK wasn't even there.  Good luck :smileyhappy:
