I had a car loan with 1st Norcal CU. The online systems make it very difficult to setup payments and the staff has a lack of knowledge of this as well. But worst thing was when going to get the payoff amount to sell my vehicle, they stated they could not tell me why they wouldn't accept a check from the dealer and that the amount was higher, yet couldn't determine why. When I challenged them on this I was told it sounded like I was having a bad morning. I was trying to get accounts settled and the customer service was awful, you would think they would want to retain customers but they have very poor quality staff here. They run a a poor business and I would stay away from any loans from them. I have had nothing but trouble and headaches in the last few years.

I had a car loan with 1st Norcal CU. My monthly payments were setup for auto pay, so I didn't deal with the reps until I wanted to payoff my loan early. I spoke to several reps during the painful process - all were friendly, but not one was actually helpful. When I received the loan payoff amount, I was told it would be good for 10 days. I sent a check within a couple of days - they cashed it and two weeks later, my checking account was debited the full amount of my regular monthly payment. When I called, the rep asked if I had submitted a request to stop the monthly payments (WHAT?! - no-one mentioned that previously, especially for a loan that should have had a zero balance). Apparently, looking into the issue further required a "specialist", who I was told would call me back. When the "specialist" (who said she was "still training") called, she said there was a remaining balance of $9. First, I don't understand how there was a balance when I paid the exact payoff amount provided within the time frame allotted. Second, why debit a full car payment ($437) for a $9 balance. After incorrectly debiting my account, their resolution was to send a cashier's check, which I was told they were unwilling to expedite unless I paid a fee. Needless to say, I would not recommend 1st Norcal CU.
