Re: PenFed/NavyFed Auto Loan BK Friendly?

I just got approved for an auto loan today with penfed at 5.6%! I was discharged end of April this year, the 23rd I believe. I have Navy Federal with a secured card with them that just graduated this month to $2000 as well as a secured share loan but they denied me left and right for anything else including the auto loan Smiley Sad I have been with them since 2007. I literally just joined Penfed today and figured I might as well try and I got an instant approval for just under 27k. So I'd say they are definitely more lienent with BK's when compared to Navy Federal, in my experience at least.

My scores at the time were around the mid 600s.  I've been rebuilding while in 13 since 2018, filed 13 in 2016.  Before the vehicle I had a a credit card and a checking account with them.  Since  then I now have 3 cards with them and a personal loan.  They're pretty great to work with honestly.  The process, once approved, is simple.  I requested a check for the exact amount of the vehicle.  They sent the check via overnight express and I gave it to the dealership.

Re: PenFed/NavyFed Auto Loan BK Friendly?

I have accounts at both Penn and Navy. I have a CH7 15 mo discharged. 

Navy had secured card graduated to $2000 CLI to $3500 denied auto loan denied personal loans.

Penn I have CC was $3000 CLI to $7500. Auto loan $30k. denied personal loan

FICO scores mid 600's Utilization 2%. Income 100k range. Never had late payment until day I filed CH7.

What I would have done different.. only open secured card that should graduate with Navy and never apply to Navy for any other product. I feel I have wasted inquiries with Navy I would stick with Penn. Just my 2 cents
