Do not buy a lemon from Drivetime. All they sell are lemons. Warranty does not cover anything! The lemon that I bought had very low miles when purchased and I've only had the car for almost 2 years. I am 12,000 upside-down, car has major issues that I can no longer afford to repair. I tried to get a new car but I have too much negative equity to roll into a new vehicle. I have put $1700 in repairs into it over the last 2 months, now the air conditioning just went out and the engine light just came on. I did some research and found out that there are federal lemon laws for used cars, so contact the BBB if you are having these type of issues. You have to know your purchase date, current mileage, and any warranty information that came with the original purchase. Try a real dealership before you go to drivetime. I know sometimes you just have to do what you have to do, that's the spot I was in, but 2 years later, I'm just waiting for the next breakdown because I know that its inevitable.

    Service was great while inside the dealership, they were professional and as a first time car buyer I thought I was in sort of good hands. A week after getting the car the service engine light came on, I looked through the booklets that came with the car to see what it meant and the problems there didn't seem so bad. Time went on and after the first payment was taken out of my account the car went bad. It started making weird noises and the rpm was acting up. We called the dealership but the guy we got the car from was always busy so we called Bridgecrest and they basically kept giving us the run around. Another payment came out even after we told them the problem and that the car was not drivable.

    Steve Meyers was excellent he helped me get the car I needed. I didn't have insurance and he connected me with Keith Pinkney at 8:45 p.m. who provided me great coverage. This was an amazing experience and I'm so grateful to Steve, Keith and staff. If you need a car asap with low down payment and easy term even with not so good credit score. Stop by and visit this amazing TEAM! !

    I came to drive tune in search of purchasing a vehicle and was greeted by Kevin Young who was very helpful from the beginning! Mr. Young explained the process and answered all of my concerns. This is the first time that I had a wonderful experience purchasing my vehicle. I want to also acknowledge all the staff at the COLUMBIA location for being polite and helpful. Thanks for all that you all do to help others.
