Buyers may need to budget for additional logistics work if they have purchased a car from an independent dealership and have plans to get a credit from Wells Fargo. The financial institution, which has more than its share of accusations of thought fraud since the turn of the century, will cease its indirect auto loans to 1,100 independent car dealerships in the United States. This represents about 10% of the total number of lenders wells Fargo negotiates with. The change, which was first reported by CNBC, will likely affect more used car buyers than people who buy new cars. Wells Fargo operates with about 11,000 distributors in the United States and told C/D that its new policy was less than 10 percent of those relationships. In these relationships, Wells Fargo does not deal directly with dealers, but lends money to car buyers themselves. With the policy change, car buyers at independent dealerships with whom Wells Fargo concludes the relationship will no longer be able to get a credit from the company. Of course, these customers are still able to get financing from other lenders, but the change can add a step in the process when buyers have to seek loans from banks that do not have agreements with the trader. Or the change is not at all noticeable to the buyer if the dealer uses multiple lenders and simply sends new credit applications to another lender with whom he has a relationship. «As a responsible lender, we also have an obligation to review our business practices in the face of COVID-19`s economic uncertainty and have informed the majority of our independent customers that we are suspending the acceptance of COVID-19 applications,» the company said. Wells Fargo says it is doing everything in its power to help customers during COVID-19, such as offering credit deferrals to customers affected by the pandemic, but it will no longer work with independent traders with whom it has no «deep, long-standing relationship,» the company said in a statement sent to Car and Driver. Lender holds the COVID 19 pandemic responsible for the reduction, in which it will borrow cars with fewer dealers and focus on those with whom it already has close relationships.
