They rip u off. Had my car totaled in February of 2017. It is now July  and insurance has paid gap has paid and refunds paid. They still say I owe them 715.0. When I called they said I was past due on my account before gap and insurance paid yet  I can't see this on the web sight ( no history of payments even though it gives the option ) and all they will say is it was before the gap paid. So now I have to send proof of payments. And add them to a long list of nightmares in this whole event. Never believe that gap pays everything because the finance company keeps charging. Don't even want to give them one but instead it's giving two cause they ask how your application process was. Easy to get in hell to get out

Straight-forward, no issues basic loan.
Anonymous Borrower

Financed a new vehicle with Citizens, online payments aren't the most stream-lined thing I've ever seen but who cares? I enter the numbers, they process the payment, end of story. Never had any issues with failed or mishandled payments, get my statement in the mail every month with the balance. There's also no prepay penalty so I can pay as much as I want over the minimum and it saves me interest. Haven't had to contact customer service, probably won't ever have to.

Spent an begging them to take my money!
Anonymous Borrower

This bank saved me 1% interest, but I don't even think it was worth it. Making a payment is just such a laborious process! There are plenty of finiancing companies Citizens could model after with real working websites and processors. 

Wish I would have stayed with GM Fianancial!

Old, out-dated, loan
Anonymous Borrower

I have a lone through Citizens currently.  Financed through them at a Ford dealership.  Rate was good.  My huge, HUGE, complaint is that everything seems to be on paper or through the phone.  Their online payment system is an absolute joke - the fields for what you owe do not even auto fill.  It is the year 2017 and yet they do not allow me to do anything oline other than go to a plain website by logging in with my 16! digit account number, and then the last four of my social.  They will not issue a username / password combo because you are not really a member of their bank.  It would just be nice to see how much I have left, schedule extra payments, pay off the loan, etc, all via the web.  Instead you have to wait for a monthly paper bill.  I'm never late, but I've still used customer service for general questions, and I have to say, they are not very helpful at all.  This is the last time I will allow a loan of mine to be underwritten through Citizens.  Should have stayed with USAA and ate the .5% difference in rate...

Car loan through auto dealership
Anonymous Borrower

I just have to add that we had similar problems with this company - it was 3 months before we got a real statement and they kept calling and wanting us to pay over the phone.  We finally gave in and paid online without having received a statement.  We were told at least 3 times that a statement had been sent, but we never got it   Customer service is a joke - just kept telling us we better pay.

Thanks for the trust

I hope all this negitive is because of the lein holders not the bank. You sign a contract to pay x amount of dollars per month . Sorry you where in  a hurricane but not an excuse to not pay your car note then be mad at the bank, sounds like every one who is mad is because you couldn't live up to your end of the written contract. They give x aount of dollars and don't have time to be hearing why you ca't pay your proc=mised payments. Simple if you enter into a contract honior your end. Also I have not dealt with customer service I'm sure I'll never have to.

Regret very much
Anonymous Borrower

Customer service is awful. Bill statements are sent only a few days before bill is due, so they kind of set you up to be charged late fees. Watch your account and how much you pay very carefully. They have tried wrongfully taking extra several times. Only reason I went with this company was because it was my only choice in a dire situation.
