The tightened credit has made things a little more difficult for some buyers of used cars. The new car sales business has not been effected as much as used car sales. I know that doesn't help because you don't have new cars to sell, the best advice I could give you to try and work those buyers for a co-signer or ask them about borrowing money for a down payment from a friend or family member.
Since the car business has been a little slower leads of all types are down, I have been noticing that we are working harder to sell cars lately. Sales people have been doing more emailing and calling of past customers for prospects and referrals.
People still need cars, sometimes the hardest part is getting them financed.

Hi KB, I need the help!!!! I sell pre certified used cars for Enterprise and it has been tough getting referrals from our rental branches and from anywhere for that matter. Also, many of my customers that come in either cannot get approved with the tightened credit market today or they do not have enough down. DO YOU HAVE ANY IMMEDIATE SUGGESTIONS THAT COULD HELP ME NOW???????
