Germain Express Purchase Program

 

What is Germain Express Purchase?

 With Germain Express Purchase you're able to customize your purchase from the comfort of your own home.  We give you the tools you need build your own deal using actual available incentives and offers, estimate the value of your trade and get pre-approved for financing so you can find the car that meets your own financial goals. All of this will maximize your time so that you can make an informed decision in a timely manner.

 First, find the car you love and then click on the "Germain Express Purchase - Build My Deal Now" button. To get started, we will collect your contact information. This way we can save the deal that you build, so that if you want to come into the store at any point, we will be able to see where you are in your deal so far. At any point you can exit out of the Germain Express Purchase experience and elect to send your information to the dealership.

 After you've entered your contact information we will get information about your trade (if you have one) and then you'll be able to play around with the different options available: lease/finance/money down/terms/miles per year so that you can find a scenario that feels right to you.  

 The Germain Express Price includes all Germain Mazda available discounts. All Mazda manufacturer incentives will be offered on the rebates tab and will be automatically applied to your deal, if it applies to everyone.  All conditional offers will be listed and can be added to your deal, if they apply to you.  From there you can learn more about the vehicle protection options available as well as vehicle accessories like all-weather mats, mobile start and more.

 The Recap tab will then give a full summary of what is included in the deal and outline every parameter associated with the deal you built. Feel free to go back through the tabs at any point to make changes as you like. 

 At this point, you're welcome to send your deal to the dealership, or to save the most time possible at the dealership, completing the finance application at home is the next best step, but that can also be done at the dealership if you prefer.

 After the finance application, be sure to click Submit so that a copy of your deal and your finance application will be sent to us and to you. Remember, nothing is binding in this experience, but it will put you in the drivers seat to go as quickly or take as much time as you like to make a purchase.

 After you've built your deal online you're welcome to come into the dealership to test drive the vehicle for the deal you built, or we would also be happy to bring the vehicle to you.

 We hope that this Germain Express Purchase experience is simple, easy and transparent. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have. To contact the Germain Express Purchase contact our Germain Express Purchase Sales associate.

 

Some commonly asked questions:


    Is this deal binding? Am I actually completing the purchase online?

o   Nope! You're building your own deal to meet your needs, but you're not tied to this purchase whatsoever.  In order to complete the purchase you'll need to come into the dealership, or we can make arrangements to come to you with a vehicle concierge, which we are more than happy to do. If this is of interest to you, please let us know.  

    Are taxes and fees included?

o   The Germain Express Purchase tool will ask you for your address so that it can pull the taxes for the county in which you live.  Our sales consultants and managers will verify that these are correct when you are at the dealership. The full overview of everything that is included in the monthly payment (including taxes and fees) is transparently broken down on the Recap tab.

    How does the trade-in work?

o   Our system will uses Kelly Blue Book Estimated Trade Value to make an estimate of your trade value based on the year, make model, mileage and the condition that you choose:

§  Very Good  - approximately 18% of all cars meet this criteria.

§  Good -  approximately 54% of all cars meet this criteria.

§  Fair - approximately 23% of all cars meet this criteria.

o   You are also able to input equipment and provide your own comment.s

o   Our pre-owned managers will want to see your trade in person in order to make our official offer based on your vehicle condition.

 

    How does Credit Score work?

o   Initially you will self-identify as:

§  Excellent (720+)

§  Great (690-719)

§  Very Good (670-689)

§  Good (650-669)

§  Fair (630-649)

§  Poor (610-629)

§  Very Poor (580-609)

§  Extremely Poor (<579)

o   As you move further down the process you will complete an actual finance application that will use your personal information to get an accurate credit score. This can all be done on our website through the Germain Express Purchase experience. This will save you time doing so at home so that you can get pre-approved before you come in to the dealership.  

 

    Is the Express Price negotiable?

o   Germain Mazda uses advanced software to determine the appropriate market price of a vehicle and is confident that we offer our customers extremely aggressive pricing that is reflected in the Express Purchase Price.  Additional rebates and savings may be available and all options are listed on the Rebates tab of the Germain Express Purchase. Your Germain Express associate will review any notes you make regarding pricing and we will assist in any way that we can.

 

    How do I qualify for incentives?

o   All available incentives will be listed on the rebates page. Finance incentives will be presented on finance deals, and lease incentives will be listed on lease deals. Any Mazda incentives that apply to everyone will be automatically added to your deal, but conditional offers will need to be added depending on whether or not you qualify. Qualification information will be explained under View Details on each of the offered rebates.

 

    What are the next steps once I find a car I love and a deal I'm comfortable with?

o   Schedule a time to come in and drive the car to make sure it's the one that fits your needs, or we can have a vehicle concierge bring the car to you, so that you can do the test drive right at home.

o   If you send your information to the dealership then we will have all of the deal information that you do, so we can just jump right in.

o   You'll review your deal with our designated Germain Express associate

o   If you have a trade our pre-owned managers will take a look at your car and make you an official appraisal on your vehicle.

o   If you love driving the car, the deal you made was agreeable and your trade in offer was close to what you estimated, then you'll be able to move through the process quickly and take delivery of your car.

o   If any of the elements above need to be tweaked, our Germain Express Purchase associates will be there to help with whatever you need.
