Working with Subprime vs. Traditional Finance Companies

two men shake hands at car dealership

Whether you’re an independent, franchise, or buy here pay here car dealer, there are many prospective car buyers visiting your dealership with intentions of purchasing a reliable vehicle.

Since credit-challenged car buyers are often denied credit approval by traditional finance companies, it’s important that your customers know there is an option to receive subprime auto financing, which is intended to meet the needs of your consumers with bad credit or no credit.

While working with most traditional finance companies allows your dealership to offer financing options to consumers with prime or super prime credit scores, offering a non-prime and/or subprime car financing option enables your dealership to approve customers with less than perfect credit history. Being able to approve more customers to purchase a vehicle can lead to more car sales, cash flow and profit for your dealership.
