Keep in Mind: This rate is not available for refinancing of an existing PenFed loan.

FYI : If you get their loan, the insurance requirement is 500 deductible for the car that is being financed. At least when I got their loan a year ago. So check it out.

9/8/12: PenFed sent me an email saying cars with more than 100k are only eligible for 24 month loans.
9/9/12: Follow-up phone call confirmed that >100k can be no longer than 24 months. Mileage over 125k is not eligible for a loan.

Damn... just refinanced with them at 1.99%... wonder if I can get the 1.49% rate instead? I just submitted an email asking if I could...

As low as 0.99% or 0.49% (48 months) if you use their car buying service. Thinking about this.

May not be a good idea of using their car service as the savings on the total price of the car if you buy it on your own would be more than the 1% in interest you save .. The dealer can even match the apr

Like the price I paid for a car is $27,400 and the same model is being shown for a target price of $29,421. The interest rate I got approved by the dealer was 2.54% ( But I have a lot of debt and did purchase another car only a month back).

You can also get better pricing from the dealer if you use their finance.. and then refinance as there is no prepayment penalty. ( of course you should have the patience to shop around and do some leg work as always to save $$$)

I am thinking of refinancing it with the 1.49%

I have a year old Penfed loan at 1.99% and would like to get this refi. I am a little confused to this statement on their website?

Keep in Mind: If refinancing a PenFed loan, you must apply for an additional $5,000. 15% down payment for 72 month loan term is required.

So do I need to give 15% down and do a 72 month? Why do I need to apply for an additional $5000?

Anyone know?

I financed an used auto two weeks ago at 1.99. I just called to get the rate adjusted and was denied!! And since the offer do not apply to Refinance one of their own, I'm screwed.

The promo won't apply to Refi PenFed loans. If you Refi a PenFed loan, you will get a higher APR. Also, your current loan will be increased by $5000 if up to 60 months.

Do you think someone can always beat a car buying service price? I know USAA does the same thing and I've never used one.

I've got a loan with chase at 3.33% with about a year left...trying to decide if it's worth the trouble. Anybody done this before with them? Pretty painless or just a pain?

My wife just completed a refi from ford credit last week (at 1.99). Pretty simple, she did it all by herself like a big girl Smilie I just applied to refi my suntrust 1.99 loan at the new 1.49 rate. I figure it wont count as another inquiry on my credit being so close together. Don't car if it does. $20 less a month, 300-400 over the life of the loan and I get to close my suntrust account.

Good rate, bad term. 24 months too long. Should never be longer than 36 months.

If you rates were that, then your credit must be crap. I'm surprised you even got an auto loan. I doubt they would do that.
