How do I apply for an auto loan?
After signing in to your account via online banking or the mobile app, you can apply for your auto loan in just a few minutes. There's no fee to apply, and most decisions are instant. In cases where applications require a more detailed review, we'll send you an email and/or a text. You can also apply over the phone at 1-888-842-6328 or at your local branch.
What type of information do you collect when I apply for an auto loan?
- contact information for applicant and co-applicant (phone number and email)
- current housing, employment and income information for applicant and co-applicant
- trade-in information (title or loan information, registration, etc.)
- amount you expect to finance (including vehicle purchase price, taxes, tags, title and warranty, less any down payment)
- length (term) of the loan you want
If you’ve already picked out the vehicle you wish to buy, we’ll also need:
- the 17-character vehicle identification number (VIN)
- the state where you’ll register the vehicle
- the exact mileage reading
- dealer or seller's name
For refinance loans, we require specific vehicle information such as the VIN, exact mileage, lender contact information and payoff amount.
How soon will I receive a decision after I submit my loan application?
We work hard to provide you a decision within minutes. If you provided your email address during the application process, we'll send you a follow-up email with more details.
What are the current rates for new and used auto loans?
Navy Federal offers competitive rates and flexible terms. Our advertised rates are subject to change at any time and depend on the individual’s credit, in addition to vehicle characteristics. Your actual annual percentage rate (APR) will be based on your specific situation.
Once my loan is approved, how do I receive my check?
You can receive your check via the following options:
- via mail sent to the address you provided (fee may apply depending on delivery type)
- for pick-up at a branch
Note: If the co-applicant's address is different from the primary applicant's address, the loan check and promissory note are sent to the co-applicant first.
