45% More Applicants Also Resulting In Slight Rise in Declines

Cincinnati, OH (October, 23, 2013), the nation’s largest car lease marketplace, reports the latest year-to-date credit approvals average recorded at 72.7% in September, down slightly from a 74.5% approvals rate YTD in August. The average YTD approvals rate considered to be “healthy” is 70%, according to the company.

A new trend appears to have formed over the last three months, one that shows the approval rate slipping compared with the same time last year when the rate showed a slight increasing trend. executives say this trend is most likely the case because the company is processing 45.5% more applications this year compared with the same time last year.

“There are more drivers looking to change their vehicle today compared with this time last year, which is also reflected in the increased number of people shopping for a different car in the showrooms,” said Scot Hall, Executive Vice President of “We expect to see the overall approvals average shift a little during this process, as a large segment of these shoppers are still focused on improving their credit from the downturn.”

Credit is the lifeblood of car leasing, and each incoming driver looking to take over a lease on the marketplace must be approved by the car lease company. In reviewing just approvals activity, has seen 39% more approvals when comparing the last three months of 2013 with the same time in 2012, and 16.8% more approvals YTD in 2013 compared with the previous year.
