Drivetime – A.k.a Ugly Duckling A.k.a Cars Yes Stevenson Ranch…

Complaint: I, like others in the reports I have read here, was in a very challenging situation. The engine on my Nissan Pathfinder finally died after 130,000+ miles. I am a father of 3 wonderful children… my family is dependent on me working and I needed to have transportation to get to/from work. I went into Drivetime on Van Nuys Blvd (now shut down) to see what kind of options they had. Their sales reps came out to try to get my wife & I into a car. They were showing us everything and anything they had. Their sales manager tried to get us to look at cars we had no interest in. The actual sales rep I dealt with was very nice… like most salesmen are when your considering buying something. However, they were not clear at all. I informed them on what I was willing to pay monthly for a Ford that was already way OVERPRICED! I tried talking them down on the price of the car and they knocked off a few thousand from the price tag…. without telling me they increased the term of the agreement to compensate. I thought I was getting a better deal, when in actuality they were keeping the price the same. I then said they had to reduce the APR which was extremely high. I got very little movement for that request. I then went back to the monthly payments, which I needed to be at a certain rate. They lowered the payments for me….. without explaining that the payments would actually be bi-monthly. The final price got my monthly payments down to about $224….. but it was to be paid 2X per month. I could get a BMW for $448/month. Instead I got a used Ford with 50K miles and a TON of problems…. transmission, starter (I replaced after 5k miles), battery (they claimed as new), leaking head gasket, front end alignment, two poorly patched/plugged tires, missing parts on the dash (they said they would replace, but never did), and the windshield wiper fluid lines were disconnected. (did I mention I have three kids to drive around in this “safe”” car?) I certainly did to the sales team. I had bad credit
