FAQ - Auto Refinance
A refinance can usually be completed in a day or two. After your new loan is signed, you have 90 days with no payments before you begin making payments to CUTX with your new, lower monthly payment,but remember interest begins the day your loan is funded.

Most people refinance their vehicles because they can save a lot of money compared to their original loan. Perhaps the dealer gave you a higher rate than you should have had, or threw in extras you didn’t know you agreed to. Perhaps your credit score has improved and you qualify for a lower rate or interest rates have fallen since you got your current loan. Whatever the reason, refinancing often means that you have the very same car for a lot less money every month.
Savings depend on many factors including whether you qualify for a lower interest rate than you currently have, whether you have extra charges on your current loan that you wish to do away with, whether interest rates have risen or dropped since you got your loan. Use the Auto Refinance Calculator to get an estimate of how much your new payments might cost.
Refinancing makes the most sense when:
- You still have several years on your current loan
- You do not owe more than the car is worth
- Your car is less than seven years old or has under 75,000 miles
- Your current Lienholder Information – found in monthly loan statements, purchase paperwork, or loan coupon book
- Proof of insurance
- Approximate vehicle mileage – rounded to the nearest 100 miles
- Vehicle VIN number – usually found on your insurance card or vehicle purchase paperwork
The approval process for a refinance can take as little as a few minutes. After your new loan is signed, you have 90 days with no payments before you begin making payments to CUTX with your new, lower monthly payment.
