State Notices:


California Residents: An applicant, if married, may apply for a separate account.


Maine and Tennessee Residents: You must have physical damage insurance covering loss or damage to the vehicle for the term of the contract. For a lease, you must also have the liability insurance as described in the lease. You may purchase required insurance through any insurance agent or broker and from any insurance company that is reasonably acceptable to us. You are not required to deal with any of our affiliates when choosing an agent, broker or insurer. Your choice of a particular insurance agent, broker or insurer will not affect our credit decision, so long as the insurance provides adequate coverage with an insurer who meets our reasonable requirements.


New Hampshire Residents: If you are applying for a balloon payment contract, you are entitled, if you ask, to receive a written estimate of the monthly payment amount for refinancing the balloon payment in accord with the creditor’s existing refinance programs. You would be entitled to receive the estimate before you enter into a balloon payment contract. A balloon contract is an installment sales contract with a final scheduled payment that is at least twice the amount of one of the earlier scheduled equal periodic installment payments.


New York Residents: In connection with your application for credit, a consumer report may be obtained from a consumer reporting agency. Upon your request, you will be informed whether or not a consumer report was requested and, if so, the name and address of the agency that furnished such report. Subsequent consumer reports may be requested on any update, renewal, or extension of this credit.


Ohio Residents: Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all creditworthy customers and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio civil rights commission administers compliance with this law.


Rhode Island Residents: Credit reports may be obtained in connection with your application. You have the right to choose the agent and insurer for the insurance required in connection with this transaction, subject to our reasonable approval and consistent with the requirements of applicable law.


Vermont Residents: You consent to the dealer, any assignee of the account or credit agreement, or other financial services provider to whom this application is shared to obtain a credit report in connection with this application. In addition, you consent to the holder of your account or credit agreement and any subsequent holder to obtain credit reports in connection with the same transaction or extension of credit for the purpose of reviewing the account, taking collection action on the account, or for any other legitimate purpose.


Married Wisconsin Residents: Wisconsin law provides that no provision of a marital property agreement, unilateral statement under Section 766.59, Wisconsin Statutes, or a court decree under Section 766.70, Wisconsin Statutes, affecting marital property adversely affects the interest of a creditor, unless the creditor receives a copy of the agreement, statement or decree prior to granting the credit or unless the creditor has actual knowledge of the adverse provision when the obligation to the creditor is incurred. If you are making this credit application individually and not jointly with your spouse, your non-applicant spouse should not sign the credit application.
