Great Experience Helpful to 16 out of 16 people

I recently refinanced 2 car loans with Nationwide.  Dropped my interest rate on both, and can make bi-weekly payments which I love.  They couldn't have been nicer or made the process any easier.  Would definitely recommend!

Just finished refinance process Helpful to 16 out of 16 people

In our house, we kind of love Nationwide right now. After a year of working to pay down our credit cards to 10% utilization and pay off some collections, we were able to refinance with Nationwide away from a loan (with Cap1) that we had to take when we needed a car ... down from 18% interest to 3.75%! 14 months shorter loan, $160 a month less. Awesome!

Oh, I meant to state that it was these forums and positive comments on Nationwide that even got me to consider trying with them. Thanks to everyone on here for their previous reviews!

Wells fargo Dealer services Helpful to 60 out of 68 people

This is the worst bank or credit that you can deal with. Its really a nightmare to deal with wellsfargo.  They are a rip-off in possible ways and their customer service is one of the worsts. They would have lot of fine prints and they will hold on anything.

I agree, I never missed a payment with this company and they took my credit line away. I didn't have a choice when I financed my new heating/aircxonditioning unit.

Applied for this loan...req suck Helpful to 49 out of 56 people

I applied for this loan with a 733 credit score, never missed a payment in 20 years.  They wanted all sorts of documentation to support the loan.  I can call a credit union and get a signature loan for $10k with out the hassel.  They suck.....

Horrible loan company!! Helpful to 20 out of 22 people

First to get approved for a loan you must submit tons of paperwork and the process takes a good two weeks, because they claim :they dont get" something from the dealer. My dealer went back and forth with them, then they went back and forth with me. If i really didnt need this car, i would have walked away.

Then after approval they ask you to put them as the lienholder, which i did, and miraclously they listed themelves as the lienholder for my other car that was paid off 10 years ago. 

After proving that you have insurance, you must place the car with comp and collison at a 500$ dedictble. Also its nit good enough to give them your policy #, you must print out the entire policy details, and send it to them. I did that and that wasnt good enough bc they stated they never recieved it and were going to charge me 700.00 $ for their insurance. I only pay maybe 500 $ for the entire year under my private insurance. 

and to top it off they close at 3pm!! why is that, bc that is what time they go back to their cells?!?

Terrible, service, terrible loan, cannot wait to be rid of them and im sure when i do pay it off, they will dispute the title or make it incredibly hard for me to get it!!!

Refinanced my car loan which was originally with Wells Fargo. I am very happy with the price AND service I have received from Nationwide. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is that I've had my loan with them for  less than a year and I don't want to jinx myself. So far, I would definitely use them again. Wells Fargo...not so much.

Me too! I just refinaced to Nationwide from Wells Fargo. Wells Fargo wouldn't let me refinance because of my income, even though my credit is great! Nationwide approved me. I'm saving $70 a month, my first payment is due in 2 months and I no longer need a co-signer, being that I'm 21!!!

I currently have Wells Fargo and my interest rate is 18%.  If you do not mind my asking, "Did Nationwide pull your credit report."?  I have been with Wells Fargo for 14 months but was late once.

Nationwide Auto Refinance Helpful to 18 out of 20 people

I received their advertisment in the mail, opened it up, did some research for credability and took a chance. I'm very glad I did. I had a fast approval which sliced my previous intrest rate in half and shortened the length of the loan by 1.5 years, all the while keeping approximately the same payment (increase of 10 bucks on an already low payment, no big deal). Their documentation process was swift and organized considering I never stepped foot into an establishment. The transition from my old loan/bank to Nationwide was very smooth. For my next loan, I will go to Nationwide first.
