Re: tesla approval odds

I'm wondering if it makes sense to apply to NFCU vs Tesla's program. I have had a mostly dormant account with NFCU for many years and about a year ago I deposited about $8k and recently withdrew that amount. So, I don't really have a true relationship with them, but I kinda do? lol. Whereas the benefit of applying through Tesla is that I think I read that they get slightly favorable approvals through US Bank.

Re: tesla approval odds

You're better off applying for your own financing rather than going with Tesla's own. NFCU's new auto rate is pretty good. Im my case, I went with a local credit union and got a 2.49% rate and just brought the check with me on delivery day to pick up my Model 3. Approval odds may be better as well.


Good luck.
