How does the Credit Union SA Fixed Rate Personal Loan work?

Credit Union SA offers 3 fixed rate personal loans: an online-only special fixed rate loan, a special fixed rate loan and a fixed rate loan. The interest rate between the 3 differs as do the requirements for security. The special fixed rate personal loan and the online-only special fixed rate personal loan are available for loans secured by a new or used vehicle less than 5 years old. For the fixed rate personal loan, the age of the vehicle needs to be between 5 and 10 years. The loan funds can be used for the purchase of a vehicle or for any worthwhile personal or domestic purpose.
