Navy Federal reported strong auto lending growth in the past several months, driven by its 1.99% APR new auto rate for loans up to 60 months.  The credit union plans to maintain this rate, along with the new 1.79% APR rate for 36 months.  In addition, Navy Federal will continue to offer a $100 bonus for members who choose to refinance their new car loans from other financial institutions with Navy Federal.  

"We are very excited to offer this unprecedented low rate to members at the start of the fall car buying season.  With a lot of good deals in the market, this is a great time to get a new car or truck," said Gallardy.  "Plus, our free auto buying service can help them get a great deal on the car of their dreams," Gallardy continued.
