I'm contemplating ordering a brand new Ford Fiesta from a local Ford dealer (or through the likes of drivethedeal or carwow) and I plan to use Ford credit. At what point during the order process is the credit check completed? I just dont want to get to the point where I put down my deposit then (potentially but unlikely) be rejected for credit. I'm then not sure what would happen to my deposit.
I would imagine the credit check is done before the order is processed but it wouldnt surprise me if they wait until later.
I appreciate asking my dealer would be best but they're always extremely busy and basically don't want to help until I want to put money down (great customer service eh!), and drivethedeal gives no information about it.
Thanks in advance.
