Lenders must lend or drivers won't drive

Scott Ordines  I have always found it is all about equity.  No cash down?  Have the appropriate inventory for subprime customers.  Big Book, Lower Price.  These cars will not be perfect, but either is your customers credit.  You can remind them of this.

Goodbye Lead Gen, Hello Online Car Sales

Ian Wittig  I sent your question over to Jim Dykstra, the founder of vinadvisor. This is what he had to say: Chris, Great question. Once you negotiate a final price electronically, you set a delivery appointment at either the dealership, your office or home. Paper work is printed, car is detailed and ready for delivery. You take a quick test drive, then sign and drive. Our members average 40 to 55 minutes total in the dealership for delivery. I hope this helps. Jim
