To Our Dealers:
As valued Ford Motor Company dealers, we wanted to reassure you that Ford Credit will continue as your strong and supportive finance source during these difficult economic times. Many companies providing automotive lending have recently decided to exit this market or reduce their exposure by tightening their purchase policies. These actions by others may be unnerving, but Ford Credit is here for you.
Ford Credit has a long history of providing financing products, services and resources to assist you in selling vehicles. Our dealer and consumer financing programs remain available to support the sale of Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles. Ford Credit has not tightened its financing standards, and we remain committed to serving your needs. We recognize that our success is a product of your success.
We understand the definition of commitment. We have been practicing it for 50 years and plan to practice it for many, many more. You've got a great lineup of cars and trucks, and a great finance company supporting your sales efforts. Thank you for your business, and we look forward to working together toward our mutual goals.
One Team, One Plan, One Goal.
