Default size really matters

I have found that size really matters with FMCC, they really seem to re-hash deals with me differently than they did at my former store. I am thesame guy with the same approach to getting deals bought and I have had greater success now than ever before.

ps
I knew that the title would make you look at this thread

The car biz is fun, when it is about the car biz! Buying, selling, marketing, and the "action" of the business is great. It's a shame that some of the manufacturers make it out to more than it is. If they would just produce, then let retailers sell, it would be a great deal. The factories try to be in our head to the extent that we all go insane!!

How did I miss this thread.

I agree with your point that buying practices vary widely within a company - that was certainly the case with Chrysler Financial when they were pushing dealers to get their floorplans. Often the ability to get deals bought isn't based on the talent of the Finance Manager, it's based on what dealership he/she's working at.

Concerning Ford Motor Credit, I remember in the old days they were so strong that mega-dealers would want to have a Ford store in their portfolio just so they had access to FMC. At one point FMC's largest dealer in Hawaii was a Dodge store and FMC did a great job of supporting the store even though they were selling a competitive make.
