According to a memo obtained by Automotive News, GM is offering its dealers a bonus for every finance deal they send to non-GMAC lenders. The move comes after GMAC said that it will only start lending money to prime borrowers that have a credit score of more than 700.
The program pays up to $250 in incentives for dealers not sending new finance costumers to GMAC in which the salesperson will get $100, the sales manager will also get $100 and the dealer can designate a third employee to receive $50.
Vehicles eligible for the incentive include all 2008 and 2009 Chevrolet, Pontiac, Buick, GMC, Hummer, Cadillac and Saturn vehicles.
