I bought an 01 ford explorer from them. i put 400 down. my payments are almost 400 a month. i mean its pretty easy you pay them when its due, no problems. I havent yet had a problem with my vehicle.
its kinda like when you need a vehicle, its the last option, you know. i have horrible credit and they leased a car to me. so its ok, but payments are a little crazy. ill be paying around 12k, when its worth about 9k.
It's really up to you, is this your last option?
then go for it.

Timebuyer has been easy to work with. The people know what they're doing and treat you right. They helped me choose what kind of car was right for me and what I could afford. My car's doing fine too after 8 months so I am happy.

I have a vehicle from there, I love it. They are cool to work with and yes you are gonna pay more that what the vehicle is worth but when you are low on the credit scale you don't really have any options. I give them a A+.

They're like any used car dealer.

Check the car out before you buy, be ready to make your payments on time, and understand you're going to pay a little more interest than if you go through a regular bank.

But if you can't get a regular loan, can't afford to buy outright, and need a ride, they're your answer.

My friend has one of thier cars and he hasn't had any problems with his ride, or their company.

I got a Timebuyer car from Canastota and want to thank the guy that runs the place Brian for working with me to get me a car when I really needed it and nobody else would.
Nice guy.

Timebuyer sucks! Especially Brian. He is rude and pushy and cocky. They kill you with the interest rates and you are buying a piece of junk and paying $500 a month for it!!!!
Buy used from craigslist.

I was wondering about them as well. I realize you will pay a bit more for not having to have a credit check done and all. I know a couple of people who had OK experiences with them. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get to work though.

My brother andmy nephew both were in a pinch due to circumstances and poor credit. They both used Time Buyer. My nephew was in an accident (someone else was driving their truck). He was in hospital with near fatal injuries annd got behind the first week and Time Buyer started harrassing him via his cell & home phone. He was two weeks late by the time he was able to borrow money to make his pymt. They were threatening to come get his car.
They are fine as a very last resort ONLY if you are able to afford the extremely high interest rate, the high payments and making them ONTIME...and of course paying .33-.50% more than the vehicle is even worth.

I got behind on my house loan a while ago and the bank threatened to take our house.
Everybodys trying to keep everybody paying when they should I guess.
When it comes to some business or bank or whatever I guess theres no reason for them to cut you any slack. The guy running the place probably gets his ass chewed if the payments are too late.
THat place probably isn't any different

They are a rip off, I know several different people whl have got vehicles from them and had one issue after another. Carbone in Rome is excellant, they got me approved for a car loan with a 13% interest rate which is kinda high but I had no credit at all. Definately look around, different dealerships work with different banks so some may be willing to work with you. Just dont jump into unless you have looked at all the options and make sure if you do buy a car from timebuyer you have your mechanic look over the car throughly so you dont get in a bad situation.

Save your money and buy from a private owner or craigslist. I went to time buyer a while ago and looked at of minivan no vehicle there under 5000 it was a Ford Windstar with over 100,000 miles on it. you'll pay twice it when it's not worth the asking price.
