Reviews on DriveTime Used Cars

DriveTime are crooks. Do not buy a car from them. I bought a car from them and the customer service sucks. I got a new job and asked could I change my scheduled payments and they started treating me like I was trying to steal the car. Threatening to repossess the car even though I am not even late one payment. I hate that I have purchased a car from them.

I had a good car buying experience here.  I wound up with a 2012 Ford Fusion.  I have a few friends that have bought cars here so I knew what to expect.  I was able to get into the car I wanted with less than a 1000 down.  The in house financing was not the worst interest rate ever either.  I would recommend those that have shaky credit/no credit this place in a heart beat.  My car has low miles and a decent warranty.  Overall it only took a few hours to get me on the road and make me happy with my purchase.

Got approved online, and started looking at vehicles. Once I had a few I liked, I went to the location with the required paperwork to see what my downpayment would be.

The sales woman Chi Chi was nice, helped me with my approval. The sales manager said to bring in about 600 dollars more downpayment for the type of car I wanted.

I really didnt want to, but what the heck. I told him I would when I was ready to buy. I went to the drivetime on 45 to test drive a car I liked, and come to find out, the down payment is based on the car, not your approval, so I went from needing 3000.00 to 6200.00 down.

I understand thier policy, but I wish the Katy office would have told me this instead of me getting my hopes up that I could have a newer model sedan, instead of having the choices of tiny cars, i.e. Chevrolet Aveo, etc.

I finally found the car I wanted, and I went to the Katy office to let them know, they said they would hold it for me until Monday (one day later) and then I could come put some money to hold it. Monday when I called to make sure everything was ok, they had put it on hold for someone else.

I was very upset. The location on 45, Erika and the GM Gerrick have been very apologetic and are both helping me find something else.

I dont have a gripe against Drivetime, but I sure do have a large problem with the sales team at the Katy location.

Before you sign a lease agreement or finance contract take the car into a local repair shop to get a full diagnostic report for your own safety and security!!!

DriveTime will not give you a diagnostic report on any of cars because they know that they are not safe to drive. They are the worse place to lease or finance a car.
They will easily approve you for any car depending upon the down payment and credit.

Only do financing because they will reimburse you for a rental car if or when the car breaks down after you buy it!

They sold me a Kia Rio that went good for two days and later on the 2nd day of having the car, the engine locked up and the car shut off on me in the middle of the road. Worse car experience ever!

Bring up the Texas Lemon Law to the sales people. Also they don't even give you a full refund back of your down payment, let alone a trade-in value car.

I do not recommend this dealership to anyone. All of their cars are POOR QUALITY!!!

DO NOT BUY A CAR FROM HERE! When I was in the market to buy a CAR I went to drive time because my credit wasn't that great. I was looking at 3 cars and comparing them side by side. All the cars had high mileage so I check all of them out and did a test drive on 2 of the 3 cars. The salesman assured me that all of there cars go through a rigorous inspection before they put the cars on the lots. I checked the engine, oils, and the over all condition of the car to see if there was any red flags that the cars had been in an accident because I don't trust the car fax. They did everything right to make there cars look they are in good condition but are not. They put extra warranties and to top it off the engine was burning oil after 4 days. They do not sell quality products at all.

I highly recommend this place for those of us out there who have bad credit, but are trying to fix it.  They report to the credit bureaus so that you can start getting some positive reporting.  And most importantly they have good solid cars that all come standard with a warranty!

 They put us into a luxury car with decent milage for the same down payment and monthly payments that we would get through one of those shady "tote the note" lots, but the vehicle is way, way nicer.  And we are building our credit with these guys!

 However; if you have decent credit, or a very large down payment I would not recommend this place.  The prices and interest rates are high, as you might imagine due to the target customers.  Also, the salesman said the car had Bluetooth but it didn't.  I think this was an honest mistake, but he could have checked into it before saying that.

 It worked out well for us since we have bad credit and a small down payment, and an urgent need for a dependable car.
