The fact is that the people with the best credit get the best deals. People with the worst credit often get screwed. People with poor credit pay the highest prices, the most interest, and are often forced to finance for terms that are either too short or too long. Worst of all, their choices are severely limited. They can’t just walk into a dealership and pick out the car of their dreams; the dealership tells them which vehicle they can buy, take it or leave it. On the other hand, people with the best credit pay the lowest prices, the least amount of interest (sometimes none at all), and can finance for terms that suit them. Their choices are almost limitless. They can buy whatever they want, and dealers will fight for their business.

In 2016, passenger vehicle sales rose by 15.9% to 23.9m units, according to the China Passenger Car Association, with small vehicle sales rising by 21% and accounting for 70% of all passenger vehicle sales in the country.

In January 2017 this scheme was partially extended until December that same year. Despite this, we expect sales growth to slow to 4.5%, the slowest rate since sales declined in 1994. An even more sluggish rate, of 2.6%, will be recorded in 2018.

Which options are right for you will depend on your dealership, but there are two things that no app can neglect if it’s going to truly benefit your dealership, “Your app must make it possible for a user to create an account…Too many dealer apps skip the account-creation step, and that means that every single time your customer wants to schedule service or a test drive—or fill out a lead—they have to re-enter all that info again. That’s a commerce killer!…[and] Your DMS MUST, MUST, MUST [sic] be integrated into your app…Because that alone ties your app functionality and communications to a user’s complete service and buying journey.”5
