With the AskAuto app, shoppers can scan vehicle identification numbers to obtain average retail costs and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency mileage estimates from a smart phone or mobile device. It also lets them make notes and rate vehicles for comparison.

The app can send messages about loan options and dealer partnerships to shoppers.

Shoppers can apply for a loan at any time using a mobile device.

In most states, shoppers can scan their driver's license to prefill portions of the loan application. The AskAuto app also prefills vehicle information, ensuring accuracy, the credit union said.
