Credit Acceptance is a proven industry leader, and has been copied by many. The
difference between Credit Acceptance and others trying to emulate our business model
is our experience and our commitment to helping deserving consumers
receive a fresh start.
Credit Acceptance was founded in 1972 by Don Foss, one of the world's largest independent
used car dealers in the 1970's and 1980's. Credit Acceptance is an indirect auto
finance company, working with car dealers nationwide to enable them to sell cars
to consumers on credit regardless of their credit history. Without our product,
consumers may be unable to purchase a vehicle, may purchase an unreliable one, or
may not have the opportunity to improve their credit score.
