Lease Buy-Outs

Love your leased car so much you can’t bear to part with it? We can also help finance your lease buy-out, with a loan that’s treated as a pre-owned vehicle loan with our standard rates and terms. In addition to the needed documents we’ve listed in that section, also provide with your application the lease buy-out instructions from your leasing company that shows:

  • Amount required to terminate the lease
  • Instructions for completing the DMV paperwork
  • Odometer Statement (Normally provided by lease finance company)

Due to privacy concerns, most leasing companies will not provide information about your lease directly to us. Also, the leasing company involved may direct you to an affiliated auto dealer to complete the lease termination procedure. In such cases, the dealer will assist you in completing our loan paperwork.

First-Time Buyer Vehicle Loans

Vehicle loans are a great way to establish and build credit — or rebuild it. Unlike many banks or finance companies, we don’t penalize our members for their lack of credit history with sky-high interest rates and mandatory co-borrowers. We offer our first-time buyers and credit builders the same affordable, low fixed-rates.

We do require that applicants are:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • Have a valid driver's license
  • Have been employed for at least 12 months

The maximum loan amount for the First-Time Buyer Vehicle Loan is $20,000. The required  down payment could be as low as 5%* depending on credit approval.

Learn about Parsons FCU vs Dealer Rates

Shopping for a vehicle loan is a lot like shopping for the car itself—you want to be sure you’re getting the best deal possible! However, keep in mind that a lower rate doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to save money. Dealers will often offer you a lower or comparable rate, but you must watch out for hidden fees and stipulations.

Before making a decision, ask your dealer the following questions:

1) What are the terms of the loan? When dealers offer “lower” rates, they usually come with a maximum loan term of 36-months –which means your monthly payments will be higher. Parsons FCU offers terms up to 84 months for new and pre-owned vehicle loans, with flexible terms and rates that allow you monthly payments that fit your budget.

2) Are there any application or documentation fees? Most dealers (and banks) will charge you an application or documentation fee, which is usually about $100. Adding this amount to your loan, even with a “lower” dealer rate, may cost you more money in the end. Parsons FCU does not charge application or documentation fees.

3) Is the dealer offering a rebate? If you choose the dealer’s rebate plan, you forego the low or zero-interest rate loan. Adding the rebate to your down payment can make Parsons FCU financing very attractive – because the larger down payment reduces the amount financed.

4) Are there any pre-payment penalties? At times you may want to pay a little bit more than your minimum monthly payment, or pay off the loan early. Some dealers will not allow these pre-payments and will charge you a penalty fee if you pay your loan off early. Parsons FCU does not charge any pre-payment penalties.

The following payment breakdown is only an example.  Member savings may vary on an individual basis. Loan terms and conditions may also vary.
