I had gone to a different Drive Time dealership back in '06. I purchased a vehicle and ended up paying it off without any late payments. This past Feb, I went in and tried to purchase another vehicle, from another DT dealership. The reason I felt that I needed to go thru them was because I had gone thru a divorce and had some negative marks on my credit report from credit cards. ..These people couldn't have cared less if I had bought a vehicle from them before. They wanted an insane amount down. Oh, but they had their wonderful 36 month warranty. That thing is a joke!
I honestly don't see how a company can make it with out customer loyalty.
I ended up getting approved for a reasonable rate with Covert Ford, in Austin. The down payment was only $1000. Do yourself a javier and go to Covert. Their vehicles are alot more reliable, along with a real warranty. No, I don't work for Covert! I just liked getting treated like someone appreciates my business!
