    Lowest for 60 month is 1.99% (new car) and 2.99% (used car) at Penfed. Anyone else find something lower?

    Alliant has 1.99% for 60 mos, 2.24% for 72 and 2.99 for 84mos.

    Energy FCU is doing a special Nov 15th-Dec 15th for .99% for 48 months but it is only on loans of $50k and less.

    Energy ECU says 1.83% for 60 months. I believe for EV vehicles, its another 0.5% off so 1.83% - 0.5% = 1.33%

    DCU for 1.24% which is the only reason I financed at all. If I was buying today, I wouldn't finance if I had to pay anything over 1.75%.

    Why is that, sorka? I can easily get better than 2 or 3% return on investment elsewhere. Seems a no-brainer to invest that money and more than offset your interest expense on a loan.

    If they are descended from members. My dad was a vet, and when he joined then I became eligible to join. Now my kids are also members through me.

    It's a matter of safety. I have portion of my portfolio in AAA rated bonds but they don't return very much. Still more than the 1.24% I got at DCU (even after factoring that rate of return is essentially tax free).

    If I was 100% in on aggressive grown funds and equities, like I was in my twenties, it would be a totally different matter.

    So you just have to set up monthly automatic payment ?
    Does it require direct deposit? Some unions require direct deposit from employer for some reason.

    Just went through the registration process as my father was Navy. What was strange is that their system said I wasn't eligible, but then asked two more questions about if I was or had been married to millitary. When I said no it let me finish registration. Odd
