If you're looking for great quality customer service and want to feel like an individual and not just a number, I suggest you head to DriveTime of Columbia and ask for Julius. He's very welcoming and shows excellent customer service. #GradeAService.
They got me into the car I wanted at a fair and reasonable price. The entire process was extremely easy and non stressful. They answered every question we had and easily explained everything. I will definitely be telling my friends about them
Absolutely never go to Drivetime even if you are desperated. They treated me as if my credit was terrible because they said they only checked one credit reporting agency and found nothing. In my opinion their online acceptance is false advertisement. They approved me online for a car up to $21000 but when I got to the dealer to get the vehicle I wanted in that range they wanted me to put down $4300. So they tried to steer me to a vehicle much older that they admitted was reduced due to being on inventory for a long time. Funny thing is after they asked for $1000 dollars down on this vehicle the amount they offered to finance was the same amout that would have been on the newer vehicle and for the same amount of time. 6 years at 21%. In fact no matter what vehicle I looked at minus the down payment on any vehicle it amounted to the exact same amount to finance for the same length of time for the same 21%. no matter what car I picked they wanted a down payment that brought the amount the financed to $19000, not the $21000 I was promised online. Save yourself from being taken on a ride. Do like I did and go to Capitol Chevrolet and get the deal you deserve. I got not the vehicle I first asked for that drivetime had in a 2007 year model, but a 2010 one owner model of the same vehicle for the same price, better warranty, less down payment and less than half of the finance rate they asked for.
My first overall impression of the place was that it was very professional inside. It was more inviting than other dealerships. I wasn't bombarded or attacked upon entering.
The service was excellent. I had a younger gentlemen, Ford, as my sales advisor. He was extremely helpful in explaining everything to me. Even after telling him that I had no plans of buying that day he treated me with the same respect and attention an actual buyer would be given.
Overall, I would have to say I was very pleased and comfortable with my experience and will be going back once my finances are in line.
