DriveTime / Class Action against DriveTime

1-5 TX, United States Review updated:

My story about Drivetime is very similar to the other complaints listed here. I would like to join a class action lawsuit against them. If anyone knows if a lawsuit has been initiated, please post it so other people can join. Thank you.

    I w. l'd like to join in this. I was sold a high price lemon. I had the car for only six months when the top of engine blew. They sent me to dealer to have it fixed under "warranty" and I ended up replacing parts. Drive Time warranty Is not even worth the paper it's printed on And to this day I am still having mechanical problems. I contacted the BBB and they are still getting away with all of the fraudulent activity

    I lease a car from drivetime on 8/1/14. I drove it home at about 9 pm (night time). In the morning I notice the car was dirty and full of LIVE roaches. With disgust and fear I drove the car back and demanded another one. The bombed the car and told me it was clean, (other cars made my payment much higher so I was stuck.) It's been a year now. Not totally happy paying 183 biweekly for a 2006 Mitzubichi Lancer (that 366 per month). I have always been on time. On 9/8/15 I called drivetime to tell them that my work payroll schedule changed and if I could change the due date. I was told no. they suggested I call my payment in. (my pymt was due on 9/12/15). I called again on 9/11 to let them know not to run my bank account that I would call my pymt in on 9/18 since my payroll change. I was told OKAY. On 9/15 my bank changed me $30 because drivetime ran my account. On 9/18 I called to make the pymt.. They said they would submit my check again. 9/22 /15 11:00 am notice my pymt has not taken out of my account yet. 2:15 pm missed a call from drivetime. 2:20pm Called drivetime back, told them that I had called on 9/18 and had made pymt. Was told thank you for your pymt. 7:15 pm my car was repo!!! Repo for 183.00 first pymt ever late by 5 days. Drivetime are scammers and I called the dealer and they said i have a $ 500 credit but yet I got my car repo. Does that make any sense????

    I am getting screwed over and scammed by Drivetime. I bought a 2012 Chevy Equinox in 2014 from Drivetime/Bridgechrest for $17, 895. My family really needed a car and our credit was not the best, Drivetime claimed credit did not matter and they could get me into a reliable car. We had a trade in, which was on it's last leg and about to fall apart so we were desperate to get into something newer as my wife was pregnant at the time and we needed an upgrade. The finance plan is the worst scam and I feel 100% taken advantage of. I looked up the bluebook value of car a few months after buying and it was worth $7000. THEY CHARGED ME $17, 895!!! 10, 000 more than bluebook. On top of that the interest rate was 20% APR. I have all the documentation. So they charged me $34, 842 dollars for a $7000 car. It is currently Aug 2017 and I still over $15, 000. My payments are $495 a month which is a huge burden and with a small family very hard to keep up with. They refuse to change anything or work with me regarding my payments. to date I have paid them $19, 842 for a car that was worth $7000. Can anyone help me get out of this?? I would like to be added to any lawsuit against them. They are scamming good people out of thousands of dollars. This is not right!

    Add me to lawsuit's against Drivetime/ Bridgechrest

    Please contact me as well, I purchased a 2012 Kia Sorento in Albuquerque NM from drive time I put 10000 miles on the vehicle and the engine seized. Of course the warranty didn't cover the fix. After the engine was replaced other parts started failing.

    I bought a 2011 Ford Fusion back in 2017 and from the day forward everything was just falling apart. It started with the battery in the car, then I found out that It was programmed so if I did anything above 60 mph it will ding and my music wouldn't go loud as well. I called them and ask for a key and he said I had to buy one from the ford dealership. After a day I got it I started noticing that the door panel was a bit wobbly. So a couple of months later I was getting out of my car and the whole door panel just came off ( really embarrassing). Then Bridgecrest harassed me for $2.00 damnn dolllars. Calling me and my co signer back to back. I am all in for THIS LAW SUIT!!!

    Looking into lawyers because I bought a car from DriveTime a month ago and it is already is falling apart but because I drove my car over mileage even if my complaints were under 30 days I won’t be helped. But as I’m reading all these stories. This company shouldn’t be able to do this to so many people who have kids, jobs, and just want a reliable car to get by . I understand they are used cars but they know what they are doing. Taking advantage of people with bad credit who need a car fast with little down. I really hope more people are suing because I am definitely looking into it as we speak

    I just purchased a car a DriveTime in Schaumburg Illinois on October 15th. I had to return to the dealer the very next day because I noticed the evening before that my headlight was flickering. Literally two days after that my front passenger tire went flat. The weather here in Chicago is changing fast and had gotten pretty cold within the next few days.less than 2 weeks after the purchase my car hesitated to start in the early morning cold and now my vent makes a clicking sound when I turn it on. How is this possible when I haven’t even made my first car payment? I googled the dealership to try and get hours for the service department and the results were “this location is permanently closed”. Less than 3 weeks and the location I bought the vehicle from is not even open anymore. So I googled the nearest location and gave them a call to try and take advantage of the 30 days warranty for the issues the car already has. I was told that I can NOT bring the vehicle to one of their mechanics I’d have to call Silver Rock and file a claim. I called Silver Rock and was given a website ( to file a claim which then lead me to local mechanics in my area. I don’t understand how this process can be so hard. I feel completely dooped into this bad car and even worse contract and I want out. I’d rather Uber than go through 60 months of hell with this vehicle. Please help I’m anyw you can. Email me at
