The Finance and Leasing Association has launched a new online tool which will let customers check if their local dealer is SAF approved.
Car buyers can enter their postcode into the directory at www.financingyourcar.org.uk and then all SAF approved dealers in their area will come up in the search results with their contact details.
Paul Harrison, head of motor finance at the FLA, said: “Because the Dealer Directory only lists dealerships that have reached the SAF Approved standard, if a car buyer visits a listed dealership they can be confident they will speak to knowledgeable staff that can provide reliable advice on their car finance options.
“I hope the standard of car finance advice will continue to improve as more and more dealers sign-up to SAF. Our new directory will help raise consumer awareness of what the SAF brand stands for in helping people to get the best possible car finance deal.”
