Auto loan refinance

Refinancing an auto loan could lower your monthly payment and shorten your term, saving you money in the long run. Solarity also offers a cash-out option, where you can pull cash from your vehicle to pay for an expense or pay down higher-interest debt. The best part? It's easy and fast!

Light on paperwork. Big on service.

We believe that buying a car, truck, or SUV should be as easy as a Sunday drive along a country road. That’s why we process your auto loan with as little paperwork as possible. Here are a few easy steps that will get you into your new (or new-to-you) vehicle.

  • Step 1: Apply. Complete a loan application online, by phone, or at your favorite location. You can also apply for pre-approval for an auto loan before you shop.
  • Step 2: Value. For new vehicles, we use the dealer’s MSRP as the vehicle’s value. For used vehicles, we’ll complete the value using the NADA (National Automobile Dealers Association) or Kelley Blue Book used car guides.
  • Step 3: Sign and drive. After you've been approved and found your vehicle, sign on the dotted line at the dealership and hit the road in your new ride.

Shop with confidence

Get preapproved for an auto loan before you shop for your new car, truck or SUV. This can give you leverage when you are negotiating at the dealership. Plus, it can help you avoid snap financing decisions or feeling pressured to buy "add-ons." Getting preapproved lets you know how much you can afford and anticipate what your monthly payment will be.

You can get preapproved in advance of shopping or you can get preapproved onsite with one of our partner dealerships. Solarity works with auto dealerships in Washington through our Dealership Partner Program. Visit a participating dealership and ask for financing through Solarity Credit Union. With the same great rates and terms, it's easy to get financed and drive away—all in a single visit to the dealer. If you’ve been preapproved with Solarity, simply let the dealer know and you'll be good to go.

Advantages of getting preapproved

  1. Know your price range in advance to avoid overspending
  2. Understand your auto loan options--such as rate, term and payment--ahead of time
  3. Leverage your preapproval to negotiate as a "cash" buyer
  4. Side-step financing games, tactics and last-minute "add-on"

A personal loan is an alternative to the private party loan that you can apply for with Solarity. If you would like more information about personal loans, please contact us at 800.347.9222, option 6. Apply for a personal loan here.

We do offer vehicle loans and you can learn more here.

After the final payment on a loan is paid, we release our lien. The the Washington State Department of Licensing then processes a paper title, which can take 4-6 weeks to be received.

If it is registered outside of Washington state, the title will be mailed to Solarity Credit Union, and we will mail it to the address on file. That process also has a 4-6 week timeframe.
