I, like lots of people, have begun the process of cleaning up my credit, but its taking awhile. I know I don t have good enough credit to get a vehicle on my own through a major bank or dealer, and don t really want to have someone cosign for me, since id prefer to do this myself. Was wondering if anyone had any good, or bad, experiences with these two places. My car will be paid off in a few months, and its a decent car, but I would like something a little newer and reliable, and I can easily afford it with my job. If neither of these places are any good, I will probably just save up and work on the credit thing a little more, but was just wondering!~

I have dealt with both. I prefer Car Mart. They are easier to work with and payments are lower and your payoff is sooner. I dont have any complaints with them. Car Today employees were rude and acted as if I owed them something because I had a less then perfect credit rating. I will not go back to them.

does Car-MArt do credit checks or base it on your income?? I am the same, I have bad credit that I am slowly repairing. I can easily afford another car payment but only if they base it on income insttead of credit.

poor decisions several years back...I have a good career now and make good money. Credit is slowly getting better, just a long process.

According to Car-Mart your job is your credit. I believe they do a credit check, but it is nothing major. Just go up and talk to them. You dont have to make a quick decision and they never pressured us in any way. Good luck.

I bought a suv from them we traded a damn good car into them that we didnt want to get rid of but gas was going up and we could not afford our mustang anymore, we took it to their mechanic about a week after we bought it cause the air wasnt working, they rigged it up so we wouldnt know it had a huge hole in the a/c line instead of fixing it they cobbled it up, do not use them they suck big time!!!

I got a car from Car Mart a few months ago and found the employees very nice. My problem is that since then my husband has lost his job and I really can't afford the payments. It looks like I am going to have to return the car. Has anyone had this type of problem and what was the reaction of Carmart?

if you return youre car to carmart they will sell it and you will have to pay what ever is still owed on it after the sell (if you owe 12,000 and they only get 9,000 then you still have to pay the 3,000)you would be better off trying to work something out alot of times carmart will lower youre payment till you get back on youre feet

It's obvious car mart is writing these reviews.First carmart does not report credit unless you consider a bad report when the auto you purchase goes back for mechanical failure after the promise of a speedy repair.Also have you seen carm arts inventory a little old. I was a carmart customer but now car today all the way as the rest of my family and yes we have less than perfect credit. late model cars I purchased a 2011 Malibu nice payments fit my budget and sales tax financed and yes my credit is reported.I would recommend car today over the other choices in jonesboro area.Happy shopping..

Carmart will work eith you on your payments
Cartoday will take your over priced rigged up car. They buy their cars at auctions for $2,000-3,000 and sales them for $12,000. Take your vehicle to a reliable mechanic before signing anything.
carmart is way better!

Well I have bought from both and with car today I got a liberty from them drove it 3 months and the front end broke when I called them could not get the huy that does the schefuling of repairs first strike so I did some research and found out that this year model had a recall on the front end so I got it towed and fixed on my own then a week later car today finally calls bout getting it fixed for me and when I told them that I was having it fixed for free because of the recall they came and got it saying I couldnot do that. Then they send me a bill of 13500 dollars that I owe after selling it when I was only paying 7900 car mart I have sent back two cars and never gotten a bill
