As Chrysler Financial, the company supported financial products and services to both dealers and purchasers of Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Venezuela. It was based in Farmington Hills, Michigan, with a final total of 3,600 employees, and a global contract of $75 billion as of 2007.

In January 2009, Chrysler Financial was the recipient of $1.5 billion from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). The company said that it used the money to fund 85,000 loans to purchase Chrysler automobiles. Chrysler Financial repaid the TARP loan in July 2009 by raising funds from an asset-backed securitization through the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility program.[2]

In December 2010, Toronto-Dominion Bank announced it would acquire Chrysler Financial for $6.3 billion from private-equity firm Cerberus Capital Management. The company was renamed TD Auto Finance in early June 2011.
