FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Aug. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Mercedes-Benz Financial Services USA LLC has been ranked highest in the just-released J.D. Power 2018 U.S. Dealer Financing Satisfaction StudySM in the category of Retail Credit-Luxury Captive. The study measures dealer satisfaction with auto financing providers for both wholesale as well as retail offerings and services. Strong, trusted relationships between dealers and the company's retail credit, funding and field sales teams were driving factors in this year's results.

"We are very appreciative of the dealers who took the time to complete and submit this year's survey and are grateful for their vote of confidence and support. It is a privilege to work with a dealer body that is delivering the 'Best or Nothing' to their customers and we are flattered that they consider us the benchmark among luxury captive retail credit providers," said Geoff Robinson, Vice President of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services. "Our commitment is always to listen to feedback from our dealer partners and use it to identify where we can continue to improve in our quest to deliver exceptional experiences to them and our mutual customers every day."

The 2018 U.S. Dealer Financing Satisfaction Study is based on responses from 4,476 automotive dealers. The study was fielded in April and May 2018.

Earning a total score of 976, on a 1,000-point scale, Mercedes-Benz Financial Services increased its score by four points from 2017 to maintain the top position in the Retail Credit segment for the fourth consecutive year. The company is the highest ranked captive provider in each of the four factors that comprise the overall satisfaction score, including: provider offerings; application/approval process; relationship and lease return.

The company continued to move in a positive direction in the Floor Plan category as well. Mercedes-Benz Financial Services improved its already high score of 986 in 2017 to earn a score of 989 this year, and rank second among captive and non-captive floor plan providers.

"These rankings could not be achieved without the efforts of everyone at Mercedes-Benz Financial Services to provide the best experiences possible at each interaction with dealers, customers, brand partners and each other. It is their passion and dedication that helps cultivate our continued success," added Robinson. "While we are proud of these results, the scores demonstrate what we already know: Our industry never stands still, and so we must seek opportunities for continuous improvement, strive to deliver the highest levels of service and convey excellence in everything we do."
