Auto Finance Leads
We offer two options for signing up for Carloan.com auto finance marketing programs. Both programs deliver car loan applications to you every day, but the PreQual program uses our proprietary Intelli-Lead Technology™ scoring model to assess the buyer’s credit quality.
You get the benefit of a credit-scored lead without a hard credit pull, courtesy of the unique relationship we have with Experian as a licensed financial services company.
To be clear, these are not trigger leads – these buyers apply for a car loan through our network, and we validate the information via our bureau partners.
Here’s a quick feature comparison to give you an idea of which program is right for you:
Feature PreQual Carloan.com Complete Personal Data √ √ Verified Contact Information √ √ Fraud Checked √ √ Make and Model Neutral √ √ Delivered in Real Time √ √ Automated Email Follow Up √ √ Internet Lead Management System √ √ Credit Score Filtered √
Remember, we work with you to customize your program according to how your store operates — income levels and territories can be adjusted to meet your needs.
Whichever program you choose, you’re getting active buyers in your market who are expecting to hear from you about buying a car.
And with our Quality Assurance Program giving you the ability to return leads, you won’t pay for anything less.
Mobile Lead Generation
Originally introduced in 1989, the 1-800-CAR-LOAN program allows car dealers to optimize their existing digital and traditional advertising with this easy-to-remember phone number. It's still around ...and now it's even better.
Lead Generation That's Ahead of the Curve -
We've found that dealers who use 1-800-CAR-LOAN sell twice as many cars as those dealers using Internet leads alone. And now we've got expanded digital and mobile support under the 1-800-CAR-LOAN brand exclusively for dealers.
Enhanced features include:
- 1-800-CAR-LOAN payment calculator mobile application for iPhones & Droid OS smartphones featuring click-to-call functionality and a car loan application
- Dealer-branded 1-800-CAR-LOAN.com web pages that feature dealer inventory and are optimized for local search and use on mobile devices
- Digital display ads, banners, and buttons for dealers to utilize in existing advertising channels
There's only one 1-800-CAR-LOAN -
And there's only one license available for your area. Find out more and get your store locked in today!

FUEL Follow Up Every Lead®
Improve your closing percentage by letting us make sure that none of your leads fall through the cracks. Our automated email system - FUEL Follow Up Every Lead® - sends personalized emails to your prospects at every step of the sales process.
When you add FUEL to your membership in the Carloan.com Dealer Network, you get:
* A Complete Cycle of Communication– Starting with a welcome email that invites the consumer to access their Account Status page to check on the status of their loan. If they don’t go to their account web page and set an appointment, that initial email will be followed by:
- a 48 hour check-in email
- one week follow-up email
- 15 day check-up email
* Full Integration with our ILM System– We alert your dealership in advance of the appointment using our internet lead management (ILM) system, DOLLAR. Support your sales team with FUEL to keep them focused on the floor and not on sending emails. When a customer misses an appointment, FUEL kicks in to get them back on the sales track.
Simply ask to include FUEL in your order when you join the Carloan.com Dealer Network. We will get you enrolled and make sure that your prospects are in queue to get the emails. That’s it!

We take our commitment to quality seriously.
The members of the Carloan.com Dealer Network have put their faith in us to help them find real people in their markets who are looking for financing. To support our promise, we developed the Quality Assurance Program (QAP).
QAP is a simple process that allows you to return leads in real-time via our internet lead management system, DOLLAR, and receive a replacement lead. Within 48 hours of the lead entering your system, you can initiate a review by clicking the button on the lead detail screen. Once you submit a lead to us for replacement, our team goes to work to investigate and verify that the application is not up to snuff. If we confirm that there is an issue, we credit the lead and replace it in your queue.
Your input is extremely valuable to us to ensure that we are targeting our marketing for you effectively and that you are getting the sales opportunities you are looking for. We provide this quality protection to our partners in the Carloan.com Dealer Network at no additional cost.
