CARMART IS THE BIGGEST RIP OFF EVER!!! I bought a truck thinking it was a nice truck....not even 2 weeks and it needs work done. Not only that....when I looked up blue book value on it, it is only worth $6,000 and they charged me 9,000 and something. I know i should have check it first but DAMN that's some crappy business for real!! I really would hate for anyone else to have to go thru this. Any stupid comments...keep them to yourself!

That 9,000 includes your 19% interest. When you have shitty credit then your rate is higher. Did they fix your car? Look up info....u can return a vehicle.

Take it back to the lot and drop it off. They don't report to the credit agencies and they can't hassle you or come after you. They will just sell it again, no skin off their teeth.

There is such a thing as a lemon law, even if it is a buy here pay here place. You have 30 days...if you're looking for a good place to car shop, but don't have good credit (I only say that bc you went to a buy here pay here place so no offense), then go to Cape Auto Plex...Randy is the owner and a really nice guy..good luck!!!

The 19 percent DOES NOT include the interest! They don't even know what kind of credit I have because they don't pull credit checks. If I return my truck, I lose the two jobs I work, and I wont be able to get my child to school....I guess some people have it easy in their lives and can do crap like that....but not me...THanks tho.

There is no lemon law in Missouri. YES, it would cover a certified used vehicle but if you don't have the law, it doesn't matter. No, I do not have good credit due to some shitty life choices I have made. I am trying to get my life back together and make restore my credit. The only reason I went there is because the vehicle I had broke down. I have no other transportation and a 7 yr old to get to school everyday, as well as two jobs, and I needed a ride now! I didn't think they were a complete and total RIP OFF!! Many people have bought vehicles from them and say they are good. But from what I have heard the past few day....many people are soooo not satisfied.

Why don't u call car mart and ask them if the $9,000 is including your interest or not? If it's not then your paperwork will show $9,000 plus your interest and that total. No they don't pull your credit but u are charged a shitty interest rate of 19% bc they know ur credit sucks. Now if you have perfect credit and go to car mart then your a complete moron. Actually u sound like a complete moron. Call them and see about your warrant and what it covers. If u are going to keep the truck then shut up about it. People take the transit and wall to work.

First of I would like to say that car-mart is a horrible place. I went there when I was 18 years old because i wanted a decent car and had no credit. They sold me lemon then when I tried to take it back they told me my warranty expired 2 days before it blew up . I called and had it towed to their lot and they sued me for 3 times as much than the car was worth I'm 23 and still paying them off for a car I no longer own so to hell with car-mart

Did it,
I went to Car Mart last September in search of a newer car as the one I had was in real bad health.
http://let-a-disabled-wheelchair-veteran-help...
I saw a fancy looking Nissan with 160MPH on the speedometer, and I saw a Buick Park Avenue that was a huge luxury car. I wanted the Nissan because it seemed to be more like a fast, sporty car.
Now here is what you MUST do next! I paid $15.00 for the service online that allowed me to enter the cars vin number and see if it had been in any accidents,floods, mudslides, or anything else that would make it run poorly.
To my horror, I saw that the 2001 Nissan had been rear-ended! So I moved on and checked out the Buick. I didn't really like it at first because it pulled a lot, and when I hit the brakes it vibrated strongly. When I turned the wheel all the way there were more problems with the steering.
When I checked it out on the online site that keeps track of what happens to the cars, I noticed the Buick had a spotless record. Nothing negative about it at all.
The inside looked like it had just rolled off the assembly line. It was a 2002 model with about 105,000 miles on it. Everything worked perfectly and it rode like a Mercedes Benz. As a matter of fact it had a MSRP of $42,500. The people who had it before me had an indoor Garage. So the car had no bird, or other chemical things that could have messed up the paint. They didn't smoke in it either. This Park Avenue is just a step below the top Mercedes Benz. It is one fine car.
At that point I knew I wanted the car. Then I signed an agreement which said they would fix several pages full of things that could go wrong with the car. The warranty was for 5,000 miles, or five months!!
So I let them include the money for that in my monthly payment.
I took the car to Independence and West End blvd where they work on Carmarts cars. I had to take it back about four times.
Then they finally fixed everything that was wrong with it. I didn't have to pay a penny for any of the repairs. After that I was just as happy as a mouse in a cheese factory. I've had the car fifteen months now, and it is still riding, and driving beautifully. It will be paid off this September, if not earlier and I will be looking to trade it in for a New Austin Mini-Cooper S, or Ferrari, or Corvette.
I have been totally happy with the car. The people who work there are first class customer service people. They treat me better than anyone else in Cape.
Unlike those people who sell those Hyundais. One salesman told me that I didn't make enough money to test drive their top of the line car which cost about $45,000
Now I had been allowed to test drive cars from every dealer on Siemers drive except that odd place.
Can you imagine that? I was willing to drive up and down Siemers drive a few times, but they totally refused. I have never had a moving violation in my many years of driving. Yet these clowns refused to allow me to drive the car! They wouldn't even allow me to drive it around in the lot and there was no other business coming or going!
So forget about those nincompoops and buy from Carmart! Be sure to get the warranty and you will be all right.!

The guy below is correct the Lemon Law is for new cars only, when you sign the paper AS-IS NO Warranty, All you can do is keep them honest, research the vehicle, take it to a mechanic, take it to a diagnostic, all before you buy, and about the price, have it reinspected, if it doesn't pass take it to the state patrol, its sucks to have bad credit, I know one screw up is all it takes. To confirm the no lemon law and laws that apply to used car sells http://ago.mo.gov/ConsumerCorner/encyclopedia... also to look up a car lot or any business go to www.bbb.org .

2) "ford owner" you always pay more than a car bluebooks for. why don't you look up what your ford bluebooks for.. i'm willing to bet that you paid more than that, because everyone does. obviously you haven't bought many vehicles and if you have then you're just being an a$s to random people online which is stupid and pathetic on your part.
3) take it back to the lot and drop it off? seriously? that is probably the dumbest comment on here so far.. pretty sure this person had to sign some type of contract..
4)BLC, i didn't read all of your comment, because it was very long.. but congrats on getting a good vehicle there.:) lol.
-also.. Ferrari or Corvette, for sure, but i'm a mustang and camaro lover.
5) shy guy, dang.. sucks to be you. majorly. hopefully you have that paid off soon.
6) anyway, my main point would be.. buying a used car is always a risk.
you're probably always going to pay more than the car is really worth.
and there will probably always be something wrong, but that's what happens on used vehicles.
it sucks, but that's just how it is.
sorry folks.
Actually I bought a new 2008 F-150 with a sticker price of $38,500 and drove it off the lot for $27,000.

Not a bad deal was it ?

Don't buy cars from these side of the road dealers, they'll rip you off. 19% interest is crazy !

Not so dumb, I did it and it was over 5 years ago. They didn't uphold their end of the contract, so neither did I. They didn't do a thing about it.

Me and my husband are 21 and have no credit so decided to buy a car from carmart. We have had it maybed 2 weeks prolly less and at the time i thought i had a job but now dont. We cant afford the payments of 480 a mnth on this car and the lady in cape said that they cant take it back. So are we going to just have to let it get repoed or what?? Then will they take us to court over it? I called them but their not budging

The county assessor said my car was only worth 450 and the total i have to pay is 8900. Does anyone know how to get out of the contract i still have 5000 left to pay.
