There’s more to the car buying process than securing financing.

It’s important to do your research to find the right car for your lifestyle. And once you’ve purchased the right car, you’ll want to make sure it’s protected. Beyond being your lender, Chevron Federal Credit Union is here to help with the before and after of buying a car. We provide resources to simplify the car buying process and recommendations for how our insurance partners can save you money. 

Resources for before you buy

Kelley Blue Book
Kelley Blue Book is a great resource for determining the true value of your new or used vehicle before you buy (or sell). Easily accessible online at kbb.com, Kelley Blue Book can help you find the right car based on your needs, access expert advice, and feel confident you’re getting a good deal.

Autoland
Since 1971, Autoland has been helping credit union members buy new and pre-owned cars. As part of our partnership with Autoland, you get access to a personal Autoland consultant who will provide guidance, utilize their expansive dealer network to locate the car you want, and negotiate the price on your behalf. They can also get you a great value for your trade-in.

Once Chevron Federal Credit Union approves your loan, Autoland will work with you to arrange the delivery of your new vehicle to your convenient Credit Union branch.

Protecting your investment

Auto insurance discounts
We want to make sure your vehicle is protected and that you have peace of mind when you’re on the road. That’s why we partner with Liberty Mutual Insurance to provide a 5% discount1 on auto policies for our members. 

Liberty Mutual Insurance, ranked 75th on the 2019 Fortune 100 and rated “A” (Excellent) for financial strength, offers high-quality insurance products with universal appeal, at reasonable prices. We’re proud to partner with Liberty Mutual Insurance to share this great benefit with you.
Mechanical Breakdown Protection (MBP) discount
Your vehicle is a major investment. Mechanical Breakdown Coverage (MBP) helps to ensure your investment is protected and reduces the possibility of out-of-pocket expenses when your vehicle suffers an unexpected mechanical failure. Less expensive than most extended warranties, Mechanical Breakdown Protection offers nationwide protection from mechanical failure, 24-hour roadside assistance for the term of your coverage, rental vehicle assistance, and transferable coverage if you sell your vehicle before your agreement expires. 

We partner with Federal Insurance Company, a Chubb company, to offer our members a 5% discount on Mechanical Breakdown Protection2, so you can enjoy your car — worry-free.
Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) discount
Within the first two or three years of ownership, your new vehicle will depreciate faster than the loan balance. A significant gap can emerge between the market value of your car and the amount you owe on your auto loan. This means if your car is declared a total loss or stolen and never recovered, your loan balance may exceed what your insurance company will pay you. 

Guaranteed Asset Protection coverage bridges this gap, protecting you from unnecessary risk. For example, if your loan balance is $20,000 but your insurance company will only pay $16,000 for a total loss, GAP will pay the $4,000 difference. We partner with Federal Insurance Company, a Chubb company, to offer our members a 5% discount on Guaranteed Asset Protection. It’s easy to enroll, and there’s no cash down; the cost can even be included in your monthly payments. 

1 Discount varies by state.
2 Mechanical Breakdown Protection is available in all states, however, in California, it is offered as Mechanical Breakdown Insurance.
