Payment Power

Are you searching for the vehicle you can afford instead of the vehicle you want? Have you been financing for a longer term than you would like, to lower your payments? Shell FCU has the solution for you!

The Payment Power program can put you in the vehicle of your dreams with a monthly payment you can afford. Like a lease, the program offers monthly payments considerably lower than conventional financing. However, unlike a lease, with the Payment Power program, the vehicle is titled in your name. This means you own the vehicle, without all the hidden costs or stress of leasing. Vehicle ownership gives you the option to sell, trade, refinance or pay off your vehicle at any time without any early termination fees. Similar to a lease, at loan maturity, you also have the option of turning the vehicle in and walking away. With the Payment Power program, you get the best of both worlds!
