Understanding Guaranteed Financing

Guaranteed Financing at All Star Dodge near Ballwin

It’s a common problem with younger people today, they want to get a vehicle but don’t have a credit history to be able to take out an auto loan. What are these people to do? They need a car, truck, or SUV to get to their job, but don’t have enough credit or credit history to make it happen. The solution is simple, head to All Star Dodge near Ballwin and take advantage of their guaranteed financing program!

Not everyone knows or understands what guaranteed financing is, so we want to explain it! Basically (and we are making this really simple here) the auto dealership works with a vast network of lenders to find an auto loan for everyone, no matter their credit. This means that bad credit or no credit applicants can get a loan and improve their credit score! There are a few things that are taken into consideration with guaranteed financing:

  • Down Payment – The first thing a lender offering a guaranteed car loan will do is work to decide a down payment amount that covers enough of the cost to make the risk worthwhile. The down payment may be high for someone with serious credit issues, though lenders can usually work to come up with a down payment number that will work for both parties.
  • Interest Rate – Interest rates on guaranteed loans designed for people with bad credit can be higher than traditional loan rates. Second chance lenders will raise the interest rate to accommodate people with serious financial problems who wouldn’t be able to get a loan through other means.

These are just a couple of terms that are taken into consideration with guaranteed financing. For more information, head to All Star and work with a member of their financing team!

Is the Ram 3500 Really that Amazing?

Ram 3500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Chesterfield

One question that we frequently get asked is whether the Ram 3500 lives up to the hype. People have heard that the Ram 3500 is really impressive but often want to verify what they have heard – this is a totally great idea, and we are happy to report that the Ram 3500 is really as incredible as they claim! Today we want to take a look at a few areas of the Ram 3500 and see how well they excel.

How are the seats? The front seats are well padded and covered with grippy cloth, and they have some lateral support for cornering. The armrests have thick padding. The rear seats are not quite as plush, and the seatback is a bit upright. The middle seat is comfortable enough for short trips.

Is it comfortable to ride in? “The optional load-leveling rear air suspension is there for towing, not comfort. Although the ride isn’t pillowy, it’s still smoother than rivals. The rear can get bouncy over certain freeway sections, but it takes a big hit to upset this truck.”-edmunds.com

It’s a big truck, it is loud? This is a question that is asked a lot. With the bigger trucks, they expect it to be really, really loud to ride in. We are happy to report that the Ram 3500 is amazingly quiet. The diesel engine is impressively quiet at idle, with barely any diesel noise evident at highway speeds. The tires are virtually noiseless, even over coarse pavement, and there’s minimal wind noise, even with wide side mirrors.

For more information on the Ram 3500 and to take it for a test drive, head to All Star Dodge Ram near Chesterfield. Their team would love to show you just how amazing the Ram 3500 really is!

Does Buying CPO Make Sense for You?

CPO Specials at All Star Dodge Ram near Mehlville

If you have been talking to friends and family about getting a different car, truck, or SUV, then someone has probably suggesting buying a CPO or certified pre owned vehicle. CPO vehicles have a lot of great benefits to offer, especially if you buy one from All Star Dodge Ram near Mehlville. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of buying CPO.

You will pay more for a CPO vehicle than a comparable used car without it. Depending on the brand and value, the cost can increase the price by 3 to 7 percent. Is it really worth it? If you are that person who has a rainy-day stash of cash for emergencies, maintains an annual service contract for your major appliances and belongs to an auto club for its free roadside assistance, then you are a prime candidate for CPO. You are willing to pay for peace of mind. Many CPO programs, however, contain some added-value items that can help save money in other areas. “Qualifying for CPO deals requires the dealership to inspect a used car following a checklist dictated by the manufacturer. If an inspected system or part doesn’t meet the manufacturer’s standard, it must be fixed or the car can’t be sold as CPO.”-autotrader.com

Every CPO program has added benefits that increase the value of the deal. All include some amount of free roadside assistance, typically following the limits of the CPO warranty. Nearly every program offers special financing deals which can lead to some nice savings.

We encourage you to stop by All Star today and learn more about their CPO program. Their friendly and knowledgeable team members know all about the different specials offered on the CPO vehicles and can show you all of the great CPO vehicles currently offered at All Star!

You might be wondering what an inventory special really is. Usually what they are are a number of specific models of vehicles that the dealership wants to offer to their customers for a discounted price for a number of reasons. One reason might be because they have too many of that specific car and want to get some of them off of their lot. Too many cars on the lot could be because the manufacturer sent too many to the dealership. It could also be because the next model year is getting ready to come out and the dealer wants to get some of the current year’s models out of the way. Sometimes All Star offers inventory specials on some of their new cars to help raise brand awareness. For those of you who do not know what brand awareness is, it is information known by the general public about a given product or line of products.
