FCCS Car Loans

Take advantage of a competitive variable rate and a car buying service with a car loan from FCCS Credit Union.

Credit unions operate differently from banks—they are run to benefit members rather than stakeholders. This means that any possible profits are passed on directly to members. Started in 1974 by a group of Ford Motor Company employees, FCCS Credit Union soon developed into a financial institution engaged in mutually beneficial, customer-owned banking.

FCCS offers a range of loans options, insurance products and banking accounts that are designed to benefit its members. If you’re in the market for a car loan and are looking to take advantage of competitive rates, a free redraw facility and a free car buying service, you might want to consider a car loan from FCCS Credit Union.
