We bought our first car from DriveTime and got completely ripped off. Alejondro Torres from DriveTime in Lewisville told us a price for the car ($17,000) and then when he took our down payment of $4,000 he just increased the amount on our contract by $4,000 (up to $21,000).
So basically our money was just taken. We didn't realize when we signed everything because we thought the $4,000 would come off after, like a first payment. So when we signed the contract for $17,000, we thought the down payment was going to come off and we'd have a loan for $13,000. No!
Not at all! He lied to our faces! Completely deceived us. Now that we've been driving the car for a while, it has tons of issues that can only be caused by it being wrecked (the trunk doesn't work, the tires are rubbing on one side, etc.).
Alejondro told us the car had not been in a wreck. Now we are upside down in a car that has damage. It's been a horrible experience!
Do not buy a car from DriveTime!! They are dishonest and deceiving!!
