On 8/21/2010 I traded my old Drivetime vehicle in for the CHAMP program (No down payment and a better rate program), we asked that my Co-signer be removed from the process. Not only did Drivetime Clearwater Florida not remove the Cosigner, they lied about the vehicle I was looking for, stating it was not available, imagine my surprise when this other Drivetime location called the next week to see if I was still interested.
On 9/10/2010 I went to the Clearwater location to get the Cosigner removed and after sitting in the lobby for 3.5 hours, they finally had the paperwork for me to sign to place the loan in my name only (They are claiming they can not assure that the cosigner will be released through the credit bureau's since they don't deal with them).
My Interest rate was lower but to make sure they could increase my payments the changed me from every 2 week payments to twice a month payments, placing me over my budgeted amount.
If you have poor credit, I suggest you AVOID Drivetime and check with companies like ROADLOANS.com or UP2DRIVE.com, which will treat you better than the crooks at Drivetime
