Never Judge a Book by Its Cover
Jun 23, 2011 | CU at the Wheel
SCE FCU member, Lourdes, took delivery of a brand new 2011 Chrysler 200S!
Lourdes and her mother came into our Irwindale branch looking to get an auto loan. Lourdes' mom was quite upset with the treatment her daughter had received from a dealership. She said, "They laughed at Lourdes. Didn't pay any attention to her because they thought she couldnt afford the vehicle." Boy were they wrong! Lourdes had actually been planning to buy the vehicle for some time and could, in fact, afford to purchase it. She even saved up a significant down payment.
CU at the Wheel to the rescue! We made a phone call, secured the exact vehicle Lourdes wanted and had it delivered to her the next day. Lourdes was very happy... and so was her mom.
Here's what Lourdes had to say about her experience:
"Thank you so much for getting me my first new car. You treated me with respect, enthusiasm and fantastic service. I felt so discriminated and humiliated by the dealership I first went to because they thought I couldn't afford the car I wanted. Luckily, my mom is a credit union member and she told me not to worry, that SCE FCU would take good care of us. I will never buy another car any other way. Thank you SCE FCU!"
