Columbus Finance Inc. agrees to advance more for NIADA Certified Pre-Owned vehicles.

Columbus, OH, December 1, 2010 – Columbus Finance Inc. (CFI) announces today that all vehicles that include the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) Certified Pre-Owned warranty will get an additional 10% advance, up to $1,000 and customers will receive 1% off program rates.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the NIADA's Certified Pre-Owned Program,” said Ken Zurhorst, Vice President of CFI. Ken Zurhorst also stated, “CFI recognizes the value of a certified vehicle to the lender, the dealer and most importantly the customer which is why it was an easy decision for us to advance more to the dealer as well as give the customer 1% off our program rates to buy certified.”

Administered by NAC (National Auto Care Corp.), NIADA's Certified Pre-Owned Program allows independent dealers of all sizes to offer their customers certified high-quality vehicles, get higher resale value, and compete with factory certification programs. “Our focus and commitment to our NIADA Certified Pre-Owned dealer network is to continually grow our relationships to help them truly compete today and are very excited to add Columbus Finance to this growing network,” said Christina Schrank, Vice President of NAC.
