August 16, 2016 – Irvine, CA – In the belief that buying a car should be a freeing and empowering experience, CarFinance.com, a leading provider of direct to consumer auto loans via the web, today launched the company’s new brand identity. The company’s new logo and tagline, “Drive Away Happy,” reflect the evolution of the company into a broad spectrum lender that extends beyond its historical focus on non-prime auto loans.
“At CarFinance.com, delivering an excellent user experience when getting an auto loan has always been at the core of our company’s culture,” said Samuel Lopez, Vice President and General Manager of CarFinance.com. “Our new tagline communicates that commitment not just to our associates, but to our customers as well.” The new brand was launched across all of the consumer-facing touching points, from the company’s website to all of its marketing materials, social media presence, and online tools.
In addition to the new branding, new improvements to the CarFinance.com website were also introduced, including an improved credit application and enhanced mobile usability. “While our brand and logo are how our customers recognize us, what sets us apart from other online lenders is the power and usability of the programs and tools we offer our customers,” said John Koehler, Vice President of Product Development.
Working closely with parent company Flagship Credit, CarFinance.com also introduced its Military Lending Program on its website, providing increased visibility to the growing program. “CarFinance.com is honored to offer the Military Lending Program to our men and women in uniform on our website,” said Lopez. “The program has always been key to our mission to provide an excellent experience to all of our customers,” added Lopez. “The program offers an expansive dealership network, dedicated service teams, and loan terms personalized to meet the needs of the service member.” Since Flagship first moved into military lending in 2012, the Military Lending Program has financed over $185 million in auto-loans.
The changes introduced today mark the beginning of the company’s efforts to build the leading platform for direct to consumer auto loans online. “Over the next several months, CarFinance.com will introduce new products and tools that continue to improve the user experience and deliver on our brand promise for all of our customers, partners and dealers” said Lopez.
