Space Coast Credit Union selects Watchdog Auto Dealers of the Year

MELBOURNE, FL (July 18, 2016)Space Coast Credit Union recently honored six local auto dealers with its Watchdog Dealer of the Year award, recognizing the superior service they provided to SCCU members in 2015.

The award, which has been presented annually to local dealers since 2009, is calculated based on both SCCU member survey ratings and total loan volume generated during the year prior.

This year’s recipients include: Coconut Creek Automall (Broward County), AutoNation Chevrolet Doral (Miami-Dade County), Daytona Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram (Volusia and Flagler Counties), Bev Smith Toyota (Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and Palm Beach Counties), Rosner Chevrolet (Brevard County) and Universal Nissan Hyundai (Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties).

“Local dealers are our partners in the auto business and we work together to ensure that our members are highly satisfied – both with their experience at the dealership as well as with SCCU. We value our members’ feedback and share their voice through uncensored ratings and reviews displayed on our website to help inform and protect other members,” says Jodie Kinley-Smith; SCCU’s Indirect Lending Sales Manager. “This award is a way to thank and recognize those dealers who provide exceptional service to our members.”

In addition to a plaque commemorating their achievement, each recognized dealer also receives a special vehicle sale promoted to SCCU members at no charge to the dealership.

SCCU’s Indirect Lending program, the main driver behind SCCU’s Watchdog Dealer of the Year award, not only saves members’ money, but also time, by enabling members to obtain their loan when purchasing a vehicle right at the dealership.

SCCU Members’ Watchdog promises to always watch out for its members’ financial interests in all aspects of their lives. Beyond ratings and reviews, SCCU fulfills its promise by using its experience and knowledge to assist members through the auto buying decision, and providing the most competitive auto loan rates with no hidden costs.
