My sister went to Drive Time on Kingston Pike on 6-15-13. She was in desparate need of a good running car and the salesman swore they would take care of her...Yeah Right!! I had to go to work so i told her to call me later and let me know what they would do. She has a 1996 Honda Accord to trade in that's paid off. I tried to call her but could never get through that evening so i decided to call her the next day. So the next morning i called and asked her what happen and she read off the terms of the financing and i thought i would fall out of my chair!! They gave her $800 for her car....gave her a APR of 23.515%...charged her $17,827.84 for a 2008 Dodge Avenger with...ARE YOU READY???.....95,046 MILES ON IT!! Oh and NO ash tray and NO FLOORMATS!!! The total finance charge was $15,862.28 so the total cost for this Dodge Avenger with NO floormats or ash tray and 95,046 MILES ALREADY ON IT was going to be $34,490.12!! I took my sister back down there and demanded her car back and told them how low down and dirty their business practices are and that i'm KEEPING the contract for financing so i can make it my life's mission to inform the public about how they have no morals about ripping off hard working people!

#1 Consumer Suggestion


AUTHOR: Wandabird - (USA)

I just came back from Drive Time Knoxville. My mom will be buying a car there on Wednesday. 

If she bought the extended warranty, theft devices, drivetrain warranty and an APR of 23%...well, tough! They would've told you and broke it down for you all upfront like they did my mother's. Yeah, if you bought all that, that's your own d**n fault!

Oh Poor Baby!

AUTHOR: Jim - ()

Perhaps you should have been counseling your friend to pay her bills ON TIME so that SHE would have not MADE HERSELF a subprime credit buyer with a history of screwing over other creditors.  Neither you, your friend or me are "entitled" to a low interest loan, we earn a low interest loan.  You can prance about, jump up and down all you wish but your friend did this to herself by NOT paying her bills on time!

partially your fault

AUTHOR: coast - ()

This is partially your fault because you knew your sister was an easy target but yet you didn't escort her to the dealer.

Shaky ground

AUTHOR: Robert - ()

 Your "claims" are on shaky ground at best.

First of all in California the summons does NOT have to be given to the person named, it just has to be given to someone 18 years or older.  So it does not matter if you identified yourself or not.  Next, by your own admission this person showed up at your residence.  You can say anything to the contrary, but you knew exactly why she was there, and she now has your address, a description of your house, but also a description of you.  In other words more than enough to prove that she was there.

It is going to be your word against hers that she never gave you any documents.  Where the burden of proof is going to be on you(and not very easy) that she went through all of this and then just left without giving you anything.  There is absolutly NO benefit for them to do this.  After all if they just wanted to say that they served you without actually doing it.  All this company would need to do is say that they dropped it in the US Mail to your address.

By the way I noticed how you have not once said that you didn't actually owe this debt?  After all if you had any case at all about not being served properly, you would forget all of this Class Action Lawsuit BS and just fight to get your judgment vacated because of improper service.
