Chrysler Financial, a business unit of DaimlerChrysler Financial Services Americas, announced an expanded non-prime financing alliance with CitiFinancial Auto.
“Chrysler Financial is delighted to join with CitiFinancial Auto in support of our Chrysler, Jeep® and Dodge dealers,” said William F. Jones Jr., Vice President – Chrysler Financial. “Through an agreement with CitiFinancial Auto, Chrysler Financial brings an additional finance source into Chrysler Group dealerships, supporting our fundamental value proposition of providing competitive financing products enabling dealers to sell more cars and trucks.”
“This alliance leverages the industry-leading systems, programs and relationships that currently exist between Chrysler Financial and its dealers, for example Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT), Electronic Lease Vehicle Inventory System (E.L.V.I.S.), RouteOne and AutOrigination™,” said Steve Luyckx, Senior Manager Credit Strategies. “Additionally, this unique approach to the non-prime market merges the benefits of doing business with a captive finance company and the benefits of doing business with an automotive non-prime lending expert.”
“We are proud to have been selected by Chrysler Financial as their exclusive non-prime lender. We feel the growth potential for our non-prime product is outstanding based upon the value it provides to the dealers and the commitment and support of Chrysler Financial,” said Rajive Chadha, President of CitiFinancial Auto.
The Chrysler Financial/CitiFinancial Auto alliance became fully operational in the beginning of August 2006, servicing more than 4,000 Chrysler, Jeep® and Dodge dealerships with an existing Chrysler Financial finance relationship.
