I just told Westlake to get out of my dealership today as they "RESCORED" one of my deals after I sent in my deal with a Yes/Yes and no changes in the info provided, this is the second time (and the second time I have stoped doing business) I cannot accept a lender changing my call back without a reason except "we rescored it". Sorry Mike  Westlake is a BAD word with me!

Westlake Financial is a true full spectrum lender. :D

Thanks for the imput Ben, Jeff I will call.
Comment by Jeff Carress on December 30, 2010 at 4:17pm

Ben,  A "holdback" gives an idea that he might have money coming down the road (think Credit Acceptance) A "discount" is taken from a deal based on the lenders perceived chances of collecting on that deal. And there is no notion by the dealer that they will get any more money on that deal. There is a place for both types of lenders to fill different nitchs.   I am betting Mike knows the difference since he does business with both types of lenders. But I thank you for giving me the chance to give you my idea of the difference. Just my opinion.


Not a rookie here either

What is the difference between "Holdback and Discount" ?

I am new to sub prime.

Comment by Jeff Carress on December 30, 2010 at 3:45pm


 You may have a point. Ours is not a program for rookies. You need to know how and be willing to structure a deal. If you do we are competitive with all the real sub-prime lenders on the market to day. and you do have to know how to put a funding package together.  I have dealers who try to put together subprime deals on internet advertised retail prices and that isn't going to work for a true subprime customer. I also have dealers who take 20 days plus to get funded every time I get a deal from them.   But Mike does a lot of business and alot of it sub sub prime. So I'm betting he won't have that problem. I'm betting he knows the difference between a "holdback and a discount and will know how to put a funding package that will get funded in 2 or three days or even same day.  Mike I left you a voice mail. And Ben I invite you to call me at the number below to chat about what we do as it is apparent that is has been a long time since you have looked at us or our program. Will be glad to give you referances such as Greg Gobal who did consulting for a wonderful dealer in Mo who did 44 with us this month and funds in less than a week. Give me a call. Uncle Jeff

BK, they are probably not your cup of tea. Huge holdbacks and slow funding. They also have very inconsistant in their callbacks.

Comment by Gary Campbell on December 30, 2010 at 2:54pm

Comment by Jeff Carress on December 30, 2010 at 2:25pm

I am considering signing up ACC (Automotiver Credit Corp). Any negatives or positives? Thanks
