Dealer Testimonials


“We want to tell you how much Santander has stepped up. You guys are a relationship bank, and we know that no matter what the scenario is that’s presented, there is someone we can contact and work with. In our business, that type of reassurance is priceless. You make our job easy, quick and brainless. We know we don’t have the same volume as some of your other accounts, but you still treats us like we’re their only one. Thank you for everything.”

“The thing I like about Santander Consumer USA is the service that they give to me. It is above all others. When I need them I have no problem getting a quick call back from Brian and all the others. They are always looking for a way to put a deal together. My rep, Kristi, is the best, when I e-mail her she e-mails me right away, or calls. She’s always there to help! Thanks!”

James Marion
Special Finance Director – Mac Haik Ford in Houston, TX

“I just want to write a quick note to say how much I appreciate your new program. The tiers are very competitive with many other lenders that we use. (We have had some of your competitors bemoan how much business you have swept away from them!) Fast funding makes it a ‘no brainer,’ especially when getting calls from lenders on a potential customer. Mike, our analyst has been fantastic also. I can send him a message, and he responds promptly, and is always willing to give more ‘oomph’ where he can. Thanks for the business.”

Andy Orem, Business Manager
Brent Brown Toyota-Scion in Salt Lake City, UT

“I’ve been dealing with Santander for six years and have sent all kinds of deals. I don’t remember having any problems. I package everything myself (package and send out) and usually get funded in three days max. Many are one day! If anybody wants to call me I’d be happy to be a reference for Santander!”

Dan Williams, Special Finance Director
Team Chevy in Pasadena, CA

“I appreciate your hard work over the last couple days, assisting me with getting my deal funded. I can’t believe you got it done. Thank you.”

Tustin Buick Pontiac in Tustin, CA

“Santander is consistently aggressive and is always competitive. My rep and buyer are always working to get me the best deal they can and have always maintained a sense of urgency and professionalism.”

Todd McGowan
Glendale Toyota in Glendale, CA

“I have always loved doing business with Santander, especially since the release of their new and improved program.”

Susie Van
Kearny Mesa Ford in San Diego, CA

“I love the new program. I have a great relationship with my buyer. He usually gives me the right callback and he’s easy to work with. You guys are getting some of the paper that I would normally send to other lenders. I’m using them less now.”

Chris Marshall
Southgate Motors Mitsubishi in Southgate, MI

“I use Santander because of my relationship with my Marketing Rep and my buyer. They always go above and beyond to help put a deal together. I also like the fact that Santander finances such a large spectrum of customers…it’s my one-stop shop.”

James “Big O” Odom
Planet Suzuki in Charlotte, NC

“We have used Santander Financial here at Tri-County Pontiac Buick GMC, Inc. for about a year. We have been able to capture deals that were undeliverable in the past. As long as your customer is able to provide a down payment or a trade-in and meet minimum requirements, you will be able to put them on the road. It gives you a chance to increase your ability to assist people that you were unable to help before. The high-risk customer that you would turn away you can keep in your dealership to increase your profits.”

Les Ayers
Tri-County Pontiac, Buick, GMC, Inc. in Cincinnati, OH

“Santander is my ‘one stop shop’ for financing in our dealership. Santander is constantly improving the way dealers can do business and they show no signs of stopping. Without Santander, I’d be hard pressed to find ONE lender that does all that Santander does. Any dealer not using them is not maxing out what the dealership could do.”

William Halley
Finance Director – World Toyota in Atlanta, GA

“I know for a fact that if it wasn’t for Santander, I wouldn’t get that extra level of deals I need to reach my goals. If I have a good month with Santander, I know I have a good month. A lot of other people [may offer] the same paper Santander does but [they don’t provide] nearly the same professionalism.”

Brian Adkins
Sheehy Ford Mercury of Ashland in Ashland, VA

“With Santander’s new program I can finance any customer that walks through our door whether they have good credit or not. My buyer works with me to make deals happens and my deals get funded quickly. What more could you ask for in a lender?”

Freddy Garcia
Special Finance Director – Braman Honda in Miami, FL

“I’ve used Santander for several years now and I couldn’t have a special finance department without them. There’s no other lender out there that buys across a wider spectrum of credit than they do. They are a great resource for our dealership.”

Dana Thrasher
Finance Director – William Lehman Isuzu in Miami, FL

“Santander has been a great financing partner of our dealership for quite some time now. We would not be able to sell as many cars as we do without their unique brand of auto finance. While other lenders give you turndowns, Santander always gives you a way to go. I would recommend Santander to anyone.”

Finance Director – Kendall Chevrolet in Miami, FL
