How to Get Car Loans

There are many different ways to go about buying a new or used car. Some people go through a dealership, while others buy from a private seller. Because of that, Community West Credit Union offers a range of solutions to accommodate everyone’s situation. One way we do that is by offering both direct consumer loans and indirect consumer loans.

  • Direct Consumer Loans: The loan is obtained directly from Community West instead of going through a third party. This allows you to secure a loan before you even go to the dealership or private owner. Many members like this option because it helps them feel more confident while shopping around.
  • Indirect Consumer Loans: The dealership gets a loan from Community West for you. The sales associate at the dealership takes care of the necessary steps for you and you sign your CWCU loan paperwork right at the dealership. Community West Credit Union works with several local, trusted dealerships. See the complete list below.

If you’d like to go the direct route, you can apply and get pre-approved online whenever you’re ready. The online application guides you step-by-step through the process and makes it easy to understand. Just fill out your contact, credit and loan information and then submit it for processing. Of course, you’re always welcome to stop into your nearest CWCU branch for one-on-one assistance with an expert loan officer, too.
