Welcome to RoadLoans
You’ve arrived at the right place.
We’d love to tell you more about what we do. RoadLoans is the online, direct lending division of Santander Consumer USA, providing auto loans and refinancing to customers across the United States.
As a direct-to-consumer lender, we cut out the middleman enabling car buyers to apply for financing online and, on approval, shop for a vehicle the same day. And we’ve been doing that for some time, since we were established in 2000.
We accept applications from people with all types of credit and that’s what makes us tick. It’s about making a difference, and unlocking opportunities, with an approach that’s simple and fair.
RoadLoans was established in 2000 by Triad Financial Corp., owned by the Ford Motor Credit Co., and was sold to an investment group in 2005. RoadLoans was purchased by Santander Consumer USA Inc. as its direct lender in 2009, and has continued to grow as a leader in its field.
Santander Consumer USA Holdings Inc. is a consumer finance company focused on vehicle finance and third-party servicing, and is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: SC). It has more than 2.5 million customers across the credit spectrum.
Dallas-based RoadLoans and SC are both part of Santander Group, one of the largest banks in the world by market capitalization.
RoadLoans has strong relationships with auto dealers and operates a preferred network of more than 14,000 dealerships across the United States, where approved auto loan applicants have the chance to shop for quality vehicles, and dealers can receive consumer leads and financing for customers.
RoadLoans has also formed close partnerships with key players in the auto industry, including Autotrader, Cars.com, E-Loan and LendingTree.
