Just my experience, maybe yours will be better...although I must state my problem with Drivetime. Oh so friendly and smiley faced, just like any other dealership.
They want to help you and try so hard to be sincere, that you almost believe you are buying or renting a car from a family member. Then once the contract is signed, it goes from Mr. Hyde to a cold Dr.
Jekyl..first off, lets talk about the interest rates they lay across, with 25+%, you are going to pay what the car is worth 4 times over. Second, the cars are just cosmetically appealing, inside, out and under the hood...and it comes with a 3 year warranty, so you feel confident with your vehicle purchase, but its all a facade, truly...just give your auto 2 years, and it will start to fall apart, and with that interest rate, you won't have paid anything on the car, scary...is this the road to happiness, hardly...then on top of that, payments are due every 2 weeks, and they will not go monthly no matter how good you keep your payments with them...the customer service is awful and sad, I don't know what they require these employees have before they hire them, but they are rude and once you really get into it with them, they become ignorant, and short tempered...lame, for a company trying to portray that they will help the down and out people, like anyone really cares if anyone is struggling, they make it unbearable, its an experience I hope others won't have to go thru...bottom line is, if you really can't buy a car anywhere else, save a little, ride a bike, take the bus, save a little more, and just but a reasonable auto that gets you where you need to go...the American Auto industry is so *** corrupt, that its pointless to drive a new car and look like your a rock star, who needs that image...a car is just that, don't get tied down to high payments a choke your years away, when you could be traveling and enjoying the world with that same money you put down on your car, insurance and gas....wake up...DRIVETIME sucks
