I can tell you that the shine is definitely off the Apple with USAA after 35 years. My vehicle was a total loss in mid September. I looked to USAA to help me finance another vehicle. I was turned down in less than 30 seconds by their computer algorithm. This is despite not having had any late payments in over 10 years. And the fact that I had paid off several vehicles during that same period. How ironic was it that I was able to walk into the dealership on 9/30/2019 and get a loan in 15 minutes or so from PNC bank with a modest down payment of $2000 on a one year old Ford F150 Platinum with 11,200 miles at $6000 below Kelley Blue Book?

And this, where USAA had treated me like a dead beat. Unable to pay his bills. I miss the days when this company actually took the time to talk to people and treated them like they cared. Computer algorithms making credit decisions on real people's lives and screwing them over. This is not the USA this old Marine mustang joined in 1983 while a MECEP at The Citadel.

Maybe bringing in everyone who has heard of the military was a mistake.

So, I purchased a Lexus GL460 from my local Northside Dominion Lexus dealership 2 years ago and had it finance through Toyota financial at 10.5%. I thought It would be a great idea to refinance it through USAA today; who I've been with for over 20+ years and have multiple products. I was so excited that I was approved using their online application tool until I looked at my listed options. Why would you even consider approving a Veteran's application with those ridiculous rates? I would have felt better with a denial, but this is simply ROBBERY!

We’re currently dealing with the same thing. My wife had a car accident and both of our vehicles are financed with USAA, our insurance is with USAA. The insurance deemed car a loss, paid it off. Applied for a loan with USAA, was told no. What’s the risk? The payments come out of our accounts that are with USAA? We are thinking of taking our baking and insurance elsewhere. Not much we can do do about the auto loan and mortgage, but there sure isn’t any loyalty here.

@N8sDad, I'm sorry to learn that your wife was involved in a car accident, and I hope she's okay. I understand that you have concerns about a recent loan decision. I'm sharing those concerns with the appropriate team for review .~DC

Well we bought a car at Toyota today and financed through capital one and will moving our auto insurance to Geico because it’s the same coverage and 100$. Cheaper a month. You can keep posting that you’re sending it to the appropriate place for review to everyone, but we all know nothing is being done and the USAA of old is long gone.
