*Offer not valid for an existing Citadel auto loan. Annual percentage rates (APRs) shown are accurate as of and may change without notice. Your actual APR will be based on a review of your credit application, vehicle model year, and loan term. All loans are subject to credit approval. Up to 120% financing on vehicle value for model years 2012 and newer. A lien recording fee applies and will vary by state. Loan-to-value (LTV) is calculated by determining vehicle value using J.D.Power for pre-owned vehicles.

Personal Requirements: To pre-qualify for refinancing, all applicants must be at least 18 years of age and must not be deceased or imprisoned. Applicants must have a valid physical street address within the contiguous United States (addresses in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, etc. are not eligible). P.O. box addresses are not eligible for refinancing (except for Army/Fleet P.O. addresses). Applicants must be in good standing (not over limit, past due or charged off) on any existing Citadel Credit Union account, and on any mortgage and auto loan (including the auto loan you wish to refinance). There must be no material changes to your credit in the last 90 days, including, but not limited to, becoming delinquent on any debt, filing for bankruptcy or foreclosing on a mortgage obligation. You must not have 3 or more open Citadel Credit Union accounts or an aggregate limit over $100,000 with Citadel Credit Union. There is a minimum monthly income requirement of $1,500, and your income must be sufficiently greater than your monthly debt obligations and living expenses. We must be able to verify each applicant’s identity as required by law and to obtain each applicant’s credit report.
Applicants must not have an open bankruptcy at the time of refinance pre-qualification and credit application, a bankruptcy discharged after opening the loan sought to be refinanced, and must not have had a dismissed bankruptcy after or within the 5 years prior to opening the loan sought to be refinanced.
Pre-Qualification Terms: Pre-qualification does not guarantee that you will receive financing or any particular financing terms, which are subject to change based on our evaluation of your credit application and any required documents. Your monthly payment and amount financed may vary depending on when your loan is finalized, your first payment due date and what we find when verifying your information. Your pre-qualification expires 30 days from the date your pre-qualification request is received. You may use your pre-qualification on the expiration date, but not on any day thereafter. After pre-qualification, you will have at least 15 days from when you submit your credit application to provide any required information or documents and to sign your contract. If your offer expires before you are ready to refinance, please submit another request to check your eligibility for a new offer.
Pre-Filled Information: If you are currently a Citadel Credit Union customer, you may have the option to pre-fill certain fields of your pre-qualification request using information you have previously provided to Citadel Credit Union, including, but not limited to, name, address and contact information. Citadel Credit Union does not guarantee that any pre-filled information is current, complete or accurate. You should independently verify the accuracy of any pre-filled information. Citadel Credit Union may require additional verification to prove that any information provided in your pre-qualification request, including pre-filled information, is accurate.
Vehicle Requirements and Restrictions: Citadel Credit Union only refinances cars, light trucks, minivans and SUVs that will be used for personal use. Vehicles must be no older than 10 years and have an established resale value. Citadel Credit Union does not refinance the following vehicles: vehicle makes no longer in production (such as Suzuki or Isuzu), commercial vehicles, motorcycles, recreational vehicles (RVs), ATVs, boats, camper vans, motor homes, vehicles with a history of chronic malfunctions and/or manufacturer or dealer buyback vehicles (alternatively referred to as lemons), salvage title vehicles, branded title vehicles, lease buyouts or vehicles without a vehicle identification number (VIN) or title issued. We may determine a vehicle to be for commercial use or otherwise ineligible based on the model and/or information provided to us. The vehicle must be located within the contiguous United States.
Loan Amount Restrictions: The minimum loan amount is $7,500 and maximum loan amount is $75,000. Your maximum loan amount may be based on your income, key credit characteristics, the vehicle you are refinancing and the amount due to your current lender. Your current loan balance cannot be significantly greater than the estimated value of your vehicle.

Your current lender needs to meet one of the following requirements: 1) is currently reporting your loan to a major credit bureau, 2) is FDIC or NCUA insured, or 3) is both Better Business Bureau-accredited and a state-registered lender or state-registered auto dealer. Most banks, credit unions and larger auto finance companies meet one or all of these requirements. We only refinance standard auto loans with only one lienholder on the vehicle title for the loan you wish to refinance. We do not refinance unsecured loans or personal loans that use a vehicle title as collateral (also known as title loans). You must refinance the full payoff amount of your current auto loan subject to our minimum and maximum loan amounts. We do not offer cash-back refinancing or lease buyouts.
