Vehicle Buying


Free Vehicle Buying Advisor – Freedom offers Members exclusive sales and vehicle discounts from area dealerships. We can help locate a vehicle and provide expert advice.

DrivingSense™ combines the best features of a conventional vehicle loan with the benefits of leasing! Like a lease, DrivingSense offers monthly payments that are more than 30% lower than conventional financing with no money down. But unlike leasing, you own the vehicle!

With DrivingSense, current year and pre-owned vehicles up to five years old qualify. And, all eligible vehicles can be financed up to 72 months. Other great features include:

  • No first or last payment or money due at signing
  • Vehicle upgrade potential
  • No capitalization or application fees and no early payoff penalty
  • Mileage options of 12,000, 15,000 or 18,000 per year available
  • Option to sell, trade, refinance or return vehicle and "walk away" at loan maturity

Discover the advantages of DrivingSense for yourself. Use the DrivingSense Calculator to see how low your vehicle loan payment could be!
