Yes I concur. I went there to buy a truck right after I turned 18 because I had no credit. I had the down payment that they wanted and was willing to pay the ridiculously high price to build my credit. After going through all the paperwork they said I had to show proof of insurance to drive the vehicle away. Upon returning with proof of ins I was informed by my sales person that I would not be able to take delivery of the truck because the manager thought I was "too young" to have a vehicle that nice. I decided that if I was too young to pay 3 times for a 10 year old truck that I would do business elsewhere.

If you have a license, what does he care how old you are? Don't make sense to me.

that sounds fishy...they'll finance anyone who is stupid enough to buy a vehicle...and they don't report to the credit agencies. the only tote the note lots in town that does that is Abernathy and Auto Max

I never said they wouldn't finance me. They wanted to finance me on a vehicle other than what I wanted.

The manager probably felt there was a payment to income issue. Often on the first vehicle, tote the note places want to see a track record of payment history before they extend credit. In other words, "you gotta crawl before you can walk". If the payment was a big percentage of your income they probably felt that if your circumstances changed (marriage,move out, etc) then it was a repo waiting to happen. He probably meant it was too much for the first vehicle, no "too nice".

yep...I had that problem. I took a car up there to trade in. The motor blew up while the salesman was test driving it. They had agreed to $2000 trade when they looked at it, then after the salesman blew it up, they said $400. I talked them to $800 trade, but since I was short on the down payment, they wouldn't let me take my pick of any vehicle. They talked me into buy a chevy s10 that had a color that was close to pink on it. ended up being the most dependable vehicle i've ever owned. had less but 80,000 miles on it in 3 years and never done anything but change the oil.

Meh. I have not one doubt that this is the "truth" you think you heard, but not the actual truth.

There had to be some kind of income/debt problem. THAT is why you weren't going to get the vehicle you wanted. Not because it was "too nice".

I bought a vehicle from CarMart years ago when I got divorced and was going through a bankruptcy on over $100,000 worth of medical bills of ex-husband's that I would never have been able to pay, and would have had to pay because they couldn't touch his disability benefits. I found them to offer as reasonable an intrest rate as could be expected for me going through bankruptcy (7%). And I paid the car off early. They were friendly, helpful and didn't make me feel as though I was scum of the earth like some of the other tote the note places. And the car was a good car. I drove it for several years before giving it to one of my children when she turned 16, and she's still driving it today at 21. We've replaced breaks and tires and a clutch one time.

CarMart provides a much needed service. They provide reasonably good cars at fairly affordable prices with decent intrest rates for those who have horrible or no credit. And they will give you a credit reference, whereever you are attempting to get credit from has only to call them.

Carmart serves a demand.
They have a wide selection of vehicles ranging from very dependable, to clunkers (because theyll take anything on trade in).

They allow just about anybody to finance a vehicle which is awesome. You miss ONE bi-monthly payment and they're driving around your job looking for the vehicle.

I love carmart.

Do the research on your vehicle before you buy it, and dont blame the dealer.

I work for Car-Mart but am currently looking for employment elsewhere....he is right I've personally watched my manger turn down someone who if young for a nice vehicle due to it'd really nice and he doesn't want it torn up....its ridiculous case mart screws people out of interest and crazy mark up......they buy a car for 4000... they sale it for 8000 at 19% interest.....some cars are decent but most are crap....I have a vehicle myself thru car mart I paid 7000 for....finally after 3400 in repairs it finally works correctly

Anyone who 'totes the note" is going to have a big markup on their vehicles. Most of the larger in house financing dealerships prices are very similar. Mr. Salesman doesn't work for anybody and was probably denied because he sucks at life and doesn't have any money, that aint carmart or anybody elses fault. If you worked their and knew their vehicles were crappy then you are a bigger idiot than you sound for buying one.

ok common sense...your an idiot, i do work for car mart in oklahoma....and i have seen that several times, i cant stand how bad car mart screws people over that is why i am looking for employement elsewhere....car marts interest rate in oklahoma just dropped from 19% to 15%... i figured great this will lower the payments atleast a little from the outrageous payments already...no they shortened the note 1 month on everything to keep the payments the same...in reality it saves for maybe 15 bucks on a 10,000 car on a 2 1/2 year note....you can say i dont work for car mart but ask anything about the crappy company and ill be glad to prove you wrong

I don't think the lemon law applies to used vehicles sold "sa is". Last time I bought a used vehicle I took it to a mechanic I trust and paid him 75$ to look it over before I signed the paperwork.

I worked with a guy that bought a car from them, it was a nice little Chevrolet ran good looked good well my friend busted his butt worked all kinds of overtime and weekends so he could pay the car off early. He pays it off way early gives it to his wife and goes up there to buy another car and they wont finance him!!! A month later he gets a bill from them for all the interest money they missed out on because he paid the car off early!!
