Auto Solution is an auto-buying service available for USACU members that is dedicated to the elimination of any and all hassle in the auto-buying process. They’ll locate the vehicle you want from their dealer network and negotiate on your behalf. They can often find you vehicles at or near dealer invoice or wholesale to you save big!
Here’s a quick Q & A with Mark Loebner, owner of Auto Solution, on how they can help save you time, money… and maybe even give you a warm fuzzy feeling this holiday season.
Q. What does Auto Solution do, in a nutshell?
A. In a “nutshell” we help members purchase new and used vehicles without hassle, and help provide them with financing from their Credit Union. With access to nearly 1,000 dealerships and a helpful staff that is here to guide you along the way, we’re happy to help with your next car purchase.
Q. How long have you been in this industry?
A. We have been providing new and used auto buying for Credit Unions for about 25 years in the Pacific Northwest.
Q. What does the auto-buying process look like?
A. It’s a good idea to get pre-approved with USACU first, so that you know what kind of budget you’ll want to stick to. Next, you’ll work with an auto buying expert from Auto Solution who will learn all about your vehicle needs and budget. Auto Solution will then locate the vehicle you want from its dealer network and call you back frequently within a couple of hours! We’ll negotiate with the dealer to get you the best price we can (often near wholesale) and then deliver your vehicle straight to your home or credit union branch. Oh, and we take trade-ins too!
Q. Tell us about the kids bikes promo going on now.
A. The kids bike promotion is done every year, and when a member purchases a vehicle, the Credit Union and Auto Solution purchase a new bike and it is given to a local charity prior to Christmas.
It is a great feeling to wake on Christmas morning knowing 50-60 children from under-served families are seeing their new bike for the first time!
Q. Favorite member story?
A. As far as a member story, there are many of them, but one that stands out was a member who came all the way down from Sitka, Alaska to get his new truck drive it back home (and brought us 50 lbs. of bear meat!).
We love what we do and members love our service!
