Ron Tonkin Chevrolet Offers Equity Plus

Portland, Oregon – March 2, 2012 – Ron Tonkin Chevrolet, a leading dealer of new and used vehicles in Northwestern Oregon and Southwestern Washington, has announced today its participation in Tonkin Equity Plus. This program was designed to eliminate or minimize the negative equity of customers’ trade-in vehicles.

The term “negative equity” means that an individual owes more money on an auto loan than the car is worth. In the past when trading a vehicle, customers were expected to pay off or finance negative equity. This, combined with the purchase of another vehicle, was a financial burden. Now through this exciting new program customers do not have to absorb one hundred percent of their negative equity.

New qualifying vehicles purchased at Ron Tonkin Chevrolet will now include this trade-in protection at no additional charge. Customers can trade in their vehicle for another halfway through the loan period. If the trade-in vehicle is valued at less than is owed on the car, the program will protect the owner up to $2,500. No other dealer has it, does it, or can offer it.

“We can now offer a more complete service to our valued customers. If halfway through your purchase you find yourself in need of a different vehicle, this program will help protect your investment” said Chad Eddlemon, General Manager at Ron Tonkin Chevrolet, “You no-longer have to feel stuck in a car that is not right for you.”

New vehicles can be purchased from any of the Ron Tonkin Dealerships and traded-in at Ron Tonkin Chevrolet to receive this benefit. Additionally, purchase a new Chevrolet from Ron Tonkin Chevrolet and you are able to trade it in to any of the Tonkin Dealerships. Tonkin Equity Plus is offered exclusively at Ron Tonkin Dealerships.

This was hands down the easiest car buying experience we have ever had! Not only was the staff friendly and helpful, the loan process was easy and quick. We were extremely skeptical due to the fact that we have had some credit bruises but the staff assured us they could get us into a car we would love and they did. We will definitely be back when we buy our next car!

Get a Car Loan with Bad Credit

Posted on 17 November 2011 by Grace

The number of people in the Northwest with bad credit is at an all-time high. This is largely attributed to the turbulent economic climate and high unemployment rate. People living in Oregon, Washington, and across the country are finding it impossible to pay their bills and as a result have low credit scores.

A bad credit score makes securing an auto loan nearly impossible. Luckily, some local dealerships specialize in auto financing for people with bad credit. Ron Tonkin Chevrolet is one such dealer. Customers are able to secure financing through the Ron Tonkin Chevrolet Business Development Center and drive off the lot with a new or pre-owned vehicle the same day.

Business Development Center

Ron Tonkin Chevrolet’s Business Development Center is directed by Lorrie Krall. Lorrie has been a part of the Ron Tonkin Family of Dealerships for over three years under her direction the department boasts a 90% success rate of securing loans for customers. Though she started as a sales consultant, she was quickly drawn to the Business Development Center. Lorrie states, “I have the best customers. My customers come from a variety of backgrounds. Many have always been responsible with their credit until the unexpected happens, like a job loss or a medical issue, and they fall behind on their bills.” Regardless of the situation, Ron Tonkin Chevrolet’s primary goal is to help customers purchase a great vehicle within their budget.

The Process

  • Getting in Contact – Clients can contact the Business Development Center in a variety of different ways. Some are connected through various third party websites and others can simply visit the company website. Special loan customers are directed to a representative who can answer any of their questions.
  • Phone Consultation – After you reach out to Ron Tonkin Chevrolet, you will receive a phone call from a Business Development Center representative. The representative will ask you basic questions in order to complete a credit application over the phone and set up an appointment.
  • Appointment – When you come in for your appointment your loan has already been secured. A sales consultant will help you find your ideal car within your budget from any of the seventeen Tonkin dealerships. The sales consultant will work with you until you are confident in your choice.
  • Purchasing a vehicle – Because your loan is already secured, purchasing a car is easy. Once you have decided on a vehicle, a financial adviser will explain the payment structure and have you sign the necessary paperwork.
  • On Your Way – Your sales consultant will hand you your key and explain any additional information about the vehicle. You are now on your way with a quality affordable vehicle.

With Ron Tonkin Chevrolet your credit score is not an issue. We believe that everyone should be able to purchase a car regardless of their financial history, which is why we have been putting people behind the wheel of their dream cars for over fifty years.

Iconic Chevrolet Cars

Posted on 11 November 2011 by Grace

 

November 3rd marked the official anniversary of Chevrolet. The bowtie brand was founded a hundred years ago by race-car driver/automobile engineer Louis Chevrolet and ousted General Motors founder William C. Durant. The pair designed Chevrolet cars to possess a spirit of their own. This spirit is manifested in iconic models such as the Suburban, Corvette and Volt.

The Suburban Carryall was introduced in 1936 and was the world’s first cross-over vehicle. It had the feel of a passenger car but with all the room of a truck. It had three doors, seated eight and weighed a half ton.

The Corvette made its debut in 1953 but it took a decade for it to truly become a sports car. In 1963 the Corvette Sting-Ray raced onto the scene with a fully independent suspension, hot V-8 engine and a stunning new shape with a split rear window.

The Volt is a relatively new addition to the Chevy line up, the concept debuting in 2007 and officially going on sale 2010. It shook up the market by offering a rechargeable electric battery and backup gas tank. The Volt serves as a sign that Chevrolet is looking ahead to the next hundred years.

In Portland, Oregon Ron Tonkin Chevrolet  celebrated Chevy’s centennial with a classic car display. The lot turned into memory lane and visitors experienced Chevy’s legacy of greatness with vehicles dating back to the 1930s.
