Are you buying a vehicle for the first time?

We’ll help you establish your credit AND find a loan that fits your budget.

Our First Time Buyer Program is more than just a way to get your first vehicle--it's a place to come for help.

"PVFCU helped me in obtaining a vehicle loan at the last minute. My old clunker just gave out one day and I needed help fast! The loan officer was very helpful in explaining the process as I had never gotten an auto loan before. I was very pleased with the service and continue to be! Keep up the good work!"

Our loan officers will explain the purchase process, help assess the value of a vehicle, and make sure that your first vehicle payment will be manageable.

The program can work one of two ways:

1) Independently

  • You aren’t required to have a friend or family member's help in purchasing the vehicle
  • You may have to make small down payment

2) With a Co-signer

  • A friend or family member accepts the liability of the loan with you and co-signs for the loan
  • You may be able to get a lower interest rate than without a co-signer
  • You may borrow up to 100% of the purchase price of the vehicle (no down payment required)

No matter which option you choose, with regular on-time payments, your credit may be solidly established in as little as 18 months. Once you have a strong credit score, you can gain independence from the need of a co-signer, or even be eligible for discounts on insurance!

Wondering how much car you can afford? Figure it out with one of our calculators.

Simply complete the online application or give us a call and we’ll help you complete the paperwork.
