Drivetime LOVES to REPO cars

I financed a car through Drivetime/Bridgecrest in March 2018. Car was fine the first month, no issues. On the 32nd day, the car's brakes failed at a stoplight, and the check engine light came on. I complained to Drivetime that my first payment went towards fixing the car brakes. In turn, Drivetime stated that they would repo the car for non payment. I did not want my credit to be affected, so I went into debt to pay that and the brakes, roughly 1500. Fast forward roughly 6 months of on time payments, and I miss two payments due to change in finances. What do they do? You guesses it-repo people were at my door the next day.
This company loves to REPO cars, as if they dont care about the consumer. Do not ever get a car through them!!!

Drive Time Ripped Me Off

i just graduated from college and was starting a new career, i went to drive time and was shown 07 Audi this was back in 2015, i signed up for every type of insurance and warranty that was offered as i am aware that an older car has slight problems. but i was ensured that with the warranty, the extended warranty and everything that Averex will cover everything except cosmetic damages , tires, and oil changes, everything else will be covered as along as i go to a one of there authorized mechanics. 31 days i started to have problems called Averex as i was instructed to and was told that there were no mechanics with in 20 miles of my area. i finally went way out of my area having the car towed to have the car looked at via DriveTime mechanic, and was told that they don't specialize in foreign cars and that they can't help me. after going back and forth with drive time they agreed to let me take to the car to a mechanic and that as long as the problems are under the warranty of fixing it that they would cover it, after taking it to my mechanic NOTHING THAT WAS WRONG WITH THE CAR IS COVERED.even though they expressed that the everything except cosmetic would be covered, i expressed to the company that the only way i would go with the car is if they offered a good bumper warranty ect. i am paying $33000 for a car i had for 3 years and spent more money in maintenance that what the car was worth. i got my balance down to $11,000 and 2 years left for a car that is not working for movable i even asked drivetime if i can trade the car in and get a new one, even though the guy told me at the time of purchase that i am able to do it after 2 years, drivetime told me when i can that i have to have a balance of 2000 or less for them to trade the car in. i've made every payment on time and now im getting to the point where i going to work via uber and buss just to make the payments. at this time drive time can come take the car and i will take it as a loss and a ding on my credit report. please add me to the law suite

I purchased a 2015 Ford Fusion from the Drive Time dealership in Midlothian, IL in early August 2018. Although the process seemed pretty smooth & the agent was pleasant & seemingly helpful, I had a mechanical issue with the vehicle exactly 31 days after I acquired it, one day after Drive Time's 30 day warranty expired on the car- a failed gearshift control cable locked my gearshift, brought the car to a halt & ended up costing me over $600 to replace it.

As I have been trying to recover from financial collapse & am in crippled financial shape, because of this unexpected expense, my 2nd car payment was late. Because I was down with the flu during that time & couldn't get the needed funds to cover that payment into my checking account right away, they repossessed the car (on a Friday). By the time I submitted the late payment & realized what had happened it was already after their hours of operation on Saturday & I couldn't reach anyone....by the time I talked to someone early on Monday, I was told my contract "was voided" immediately after the car was repossessed, I could no longer procure a contract on that particular vehicle & I would have to wait 6-12 months before obtaining another one with Drive Time. Even though I know it is "technically" legal for a lender to repossess after one missed payment, at no time was I informed that a single late payment would place me in danger of vehicle repossession & a voided contract. Given the issue I had with the vehicle early on with the car, I think the least they could have done was give me a verbal or written warning (something I did not get). Needless to say, I got no response from (finance company) Bridgecrest to my written inquiries & no where with the phone agent I spoke to on this. I feel this is a fundamentally predatory company set up to prey on financially desperate individuals like myself.

DriveTime and Bridgecrest URGENT

I purchased a car two years ago , 2015 Nissan Altima nothing but issues from day one the brakes went out , I traveled to California and my transmission went where me and my family was stuck in California . I was told by another company I am paying triple the price of the car . Meaning basically 10,000 dollars more .. no one will refinance me at and bridgecrest will not help me at all to Lower my payments . I’m a single mother who was looking for a reliable car however I got ripped off my payments are 500 a month and I have been in the hospital and have surgery coming up very soon . I have called on numerous times to speak with bridgecrest to help me or work something out with me but they refuse. I’ve become so frustrated and just feel like they can just come for the car already . I still make my payments but find my self angry as I feel cheated . I was also told I can cancel the warranty which would at least put back 6000 dollars per the person that sold me the car however it’s not anything I paid for per the warranty it’s 2000 so more I’m like what is going on . So if there is a class action lawsuit please add me on to it as this company needs to be shut down for ripping innocent people ... pls my email is bludyamond5@gmail.com

Horrible add us to your lawsuit

My son and I purchased a car from DriveTime in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. It ran well for a month yes I said one month and one month only we have contacted the dealership we have contacted Silver Rock the Warranty company and they have given us the running around time and time again tires oil changes brakes rotors so on and so forth. Speedometer and odometer meters totally broke and there is no one in this area outside of a dealership who can do the repairs Silver Rock and drive time again keep giving us the run-around about this and the car sits in the driveway. Unfortunately due to some Financial situations we are we do pay as we are able and have made arrangements with them. Arrangements with them every week. They prey on those who can least afford it yes we knew we would be paying higher than most people because of credit.
Yes I realize we are now two payments behind but we have set payment arrangements up. There is no need to be rude and nasty..
The still does not explain why this car that is not even a year old does not work and continues to have problems. Perhaps I wouldn't be behind if we didn't pay $500 each monthOr more on repairs every month

Lemon Sold To My Family

On February 5, 2016 my husband purchased a 2013 Chrysler 200 from Drivetime. At the time of purchase he also bought the Gap coverage $795.00, the Motion GPS plus SilverRock warranty $695.00, and the most worthless of all; the Aeverex protection plan $2,895.00. The car ran good at first and then the check engine light came on so we had the Chrysler dealer in our hometown to check it, they could find nothing wrong. This continued for several weeks and the last time it was taken in for diagnostics was the same as initial visit. In any case we treated this car like it was our prize possession as it is the only way we have of transportation. On September 13, 2017 I'm coming from a short trip and the car while stopped in traffic began making this horrible noise, but no lights or warnings are showing so I then proceed to try and pull across the 2 lanes of traffic to get to the roadside, while attempting this the car starts reading hot oil message and goes dead. Keep in mind this I in about a 2 minute span of time, just long enough to change 2 lanes. Thank God for Samaritans as 2 strangers helped me to push it the rest of the way off the road and my way out of danger. I immediately called Bridgecrest who instructs me to call Aeverex, I did so and was told that our car was still under coverage for the transmission, drivetrain, and engine. At the time I spoke to them this was assured to me due to the mileage on the car and in line with our contract. It was taken to a local mechanic under agreement with Aeverex, once the mechanic checks our contract he then has an inspector/adjustor from Aeverex come look at the car because the papers say he can't touch it until they do...It is found to be the engine, doesn't just need work, needs a new one. I couldn't believe it as this car had been treated so well by us and we were assured at Drivetime it went through this spectacular inspection prior to bring sold...evidently not as Aeverex has denied the claim for a replacement engine on an only 4 year old car which we were assured was covered. Shocker! We call Bridgecrest to have them pretty much tell us that they can't do anything, we call Drivetime and this person named Jordan (who refused his last name) tells us maybe they can get Aeverex to approve the claim, it may just take a few days. We wait. This has been almost 3 weeks now since we've heard from anyone at Drivetime or Aeverex and there have been 0 emails or voicemails as I check daily. This is beyond ridiculous to be allowed to treat the American people this way all the while claiming to offer aid to those who have like us had many medical setbacks and have had their credit suffer because of it. We would LOVE to join a class action suit against BOTH of these tyrants if industry who seem to feel free to walk all over the little working men and women of this country. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Car problems and ridiculous interest rate.

I purchased a 2012 Hyundai sonata the from drive time about 2 or 3 weeks after I purchased it the monk the engine blew up it was a recall through Hyundai. The whole time the car was getting fixed I had to make the payments plus I had to pay for the tow when the car blew up and they didn't reimburse me for the rental while I was renting a car from the time it blew up until that time Hyundai got it to their shop. Now my health has gone very badly I have liver failure and I'm having problems making my payment and they're just being ridiculous they did I just my payments and put them to the back of the loan but now my payment went from 189.00 to 211.00. Please put me in your lawsuit.

Rip offs

I got a car from drivetime...2007 Chevy cobalt back in February in of 2014. This was my first time purchasing a car. So I really had no clue...how things are handled. But anyway after all the paperwork was done...they were so nice. When I finally realized I would be paying 19,000 for an 07 Chevy Cobalt. I begin to have some financial issues...I’m still currently behind on my payments. I’ve told them my situation continuously. They have threaten to repo my car that is only worth about 2100 or less. They have called me on my job. I told them over and over again...don’t call me while I’m at work. They have called and harassed my parents. I told them to never ever...call my parents harassing them. They have threaten me numerous times about my car getting repo. I have had representatives call and talk very rudely to me. They are ripping off poor people...who’s desperate to have a car. Please add me to your lawsuit. Chan141975@gmail.com

Problems with car

When i got the car there were problems. I went to the dealer by myself i desperately needed a car. I have all the problems reported to the shop that fixed on my car. All kinds of lights are up on my dashboard and ive reported them. I got my car Nov 2015. I have receipts of out of pocket expenses that ive paid. Ive gotten my brakes changed over 6 times this year alone. Aeverex warranty company picks and chooses what they want to repair. I have a lexus is250 and the car sounded like a race car. I drove around for a month like this. They should not be allowed to sell cars at all. They were very unprofessional. They call from fake local phone numbers...their customer service center is very intimidating...i took my car payment money multiple times and fixed my car...they threatened to come and get it. I said thats fine its a piece of shit anyway. The interest rate was the maximum that Maryland allowed meaning they are really greedy. I have 16,000 left to pay on this car and i feel like I'm in a ball and chain relationship with them. I even wrote on the BBB website and they told me to call in to get help and that was just to keep me from writing more embarrassing reviews. I called in and they basically told me there was nothing they could do. I would really like to get in on this lawsuit as i have mounds of information and receipts.

Predatory Lending!!

Purchased a vehicle and if I had not checked my credit report for a new job I would not have known that I was mislead and defrauded by a company who I thought was on consumers side because of how they advertise. The vehicle is worth, worth (as I stated twice on purpose) below $10000 according to Kelly Blue Book value, by the time it's paid off in 5 years will total.....Wait for it...over $32,000!! I would love to get in on ANY class action lawsuit for Drive-Time and let the world know they are predatory lenders and they need to be stopped!!! I want in on the LAWSUIT! I'm looking online for where I sign up and get in one ending this shameful lending!

Sold me a lemon

I went to drivetime bc I was in desperate need for a car. Every other dealership had a high down payment. So I ended up getting a car from drivetime. I got a 2013 Dodge Avenger on Oct 13, 2016. Maybe after 2 weeks of having the car it started to shut off on me. November 27th of 2016 my kids and I were driving on the freeway and boom it shut off wgike in the middle of the busy freeway. Luckily for me there was a AAA begind me that helped me to the side of the road. I called Drivetime and they gave me a number to Averex which were in charge of my warranty. They tell me because it has already been 30 days past due they were gonna charge me for everything if something was wrong with the car.. anywho my Husband and I got a repo bc we couldnt agford the 400 monthly payment on top of paying for the damages. Now they send me a letter thay I owe 8,900 for the remaining balance. They sold iy for 7,000. Blah blah blah. Add me to yoir lawsuit plz. #### drivetime. #######. Hope they run out of business.

RUDE company LEMON cars

I went to DriveTime to get information on a vehicle that my husband who had passed away left to my son. We needed pay off amount and how to transfer everything to my son's name. I was also in need of a car and was vulnerable at the time seeing as how I just lost my husband. They talked me into buying a 2010 Chrysler 300, offered me no down payment and to split my payments in 2 each month. Sounded good at the time. They also told me that ALL there vehicles come with extended warranty, they gave me all the info to there warranty company. A few months into having the car I was having a hard time starting it. Went somewhere to have it looked at and they claim nothing was wrong. Contacted the extended warranty company only to get the run around due to them switching warranty companies and not telling their customers. Finally get a number, they tell me to take it to Ted Wiens and they will pay for the diagnosis. Well so not the case, I had to pay for the diagnosis as well as for them to fix my car. So please tell me WHY I have this warranty when they won't ever help you. Well a few more months go by and I have more problems, I contact the warranty company and they tell me to take it to Sears. I get there only to find out Sears NO longer services DriveTime vehicles. Call the warranty yet again and was told to go to PepBoys. Well once again I have to pay for the diagnosis and my deductible. A few months later I have more problems, per PepBoys there was a list of problems and that they would bill the warranty company. Luckily I told them NOT to do any work on my car till they got the approval from the warranty company because it was $1200 worth of work. Well surprise surprise they deny the claim and PepBoys had my car for 2 days. I get it back and take it elsewhere and pay out of pocket. I asked DriveTime to work with me on my payments due to me having to come out of pocket for the repairs and they said yes but expected me to pay MORE monthly to "catch up". I don't think so! So I get harassed every day with calls and emails but I ignore them. Well here I am again with transmission issues and they once again won't help me. So then they send a detective to my house with repossession threats so thy take my car. PLEASE sign me up for this and any lawsuit!

Lemon Car

I was a naive 19 year old they took advantage of. I was a caregiver, had to take patients places. My current car was dangerous. Saw a commercial for drive time saying they would give you a car with no credit. Not many places do that. I had no credit or anyone to be a cosigner so I felt it was my only option. They sold me a 2006 Ford Focus. My understanding when they were selling it to me was that it would be 186 a month for five years and the cost would be a total amount of 9,000 something....I had no idea how payments worked or how loans worked....they gave me answers I did not understand. My car is only worth at most in the 3,000's on Kelly Blue Book. By the end of my 5 year loan term I will have paid 23,000 something on it!!! I could have got a new car with the payements I'm making. I'm breaking my back just to make car payements. Not only that but they sold me a wrecked car!!!! In the "car fax" they have me there were no reported accidents. However, I've had 3 mechanics tell me the from end had been totaled and it has all replacement parts. They sold me a lemon!!! They lied about it not being wrecked. I had a ton of work done on this car...seems to be new problems every month. I wish I could just give them the car back and end the payements but they don't allow that either! The loan company Bridgecrest they go through also keeps changing my payoof amount, as well as daily interest. I have multiple screenshots. I make all of my payements on time, In fact, 6 days early!
