I was wondering if anyone has bought a vehicle from them and what your experience was? I was thinking about getting a car from there but couldn't find any reviews for the one in Rome online. Thanks

Went and looked at a car "cash" price was $4995 for a 2004 Saturn with 100,000 miles. This was the base model Saturn no power locks, power windows nothing. If you wanted to finance it through timebuyer all of a sudden the total price was $13,000. We were lmoao!!!! Kelly blue book on the high end was $2495!!! They seem to be out there to rip off the desperate!
do not go there

unless you have really bad credit and a good job don't even try it. The prices are out of this world. The interest is over 20%. When you are done you will have paid for the car twice, if it still runs by then.

Same deal as crystal autos all salvaged cars and will break sooner than later. It's a scam to rip off the poor souls that desperately need a car.

Find a dealer that deals with Credit Acceptance. Not that I highly recommend any high interest loan rates but you get many dealers to choose from so a better selection.

Time Buyers are a ripoff not matter what. They sell junk. They are predators of poor credit people. People think the Housing Industry was a scam. They ought to look into these outfits.

I know someone that has a car from there.They are paying way too much for this piece of crap.They want to give the car back but was told by time buyer that they couldn't drop the car off to them.That time buyer has to come tow the car from wherever the car is parked.Anyone know why this is?Time buyer can't seem to answer this question.I mean,what is time buyer gonna do if they drop it off to them?Call the cops and tell them that someone gave them their car back?
hmmmm

Timebuyer thinks they have their own rules to follow. Your friend can drop off the car in nys there is a thing called voluntary repossession. Keep in mind tho it does not get her out of paying but then it will go to court. You can call the attorney generals office to file a complaint! Timebuyer may think they know all and try to pressure you into keeping the car tho. Stick to your guns and know your rights!

ok.Thank you.I will let them know about the voluntary repossession and tell them they should file a complaint.The interest rate on these vehicles is so outrageous that it should be illegal.And they aren't even nice vehicles to begin with.

Thanks for letting me know. I do not have horrible credit but it's not high enough to make easy for me to purchase a car. I will definately look into the credit accceptance. Thanks for that tip. Right now I'm just trying to bank as much as I can each month to purchase a car outright from Craigslist but it's slow going and I have a lot of appointments coming up and of course getting back and forth to work everyday. I guess it's better to wait and be patient saving my money rather then jump into something and get ripped off.
Huh

Because if you drop it off and they accept it then it is a mutual return. If they tow it then it is a repo and they go after you for the balance due after auctioning it off.

It amazes me how many of posts in this thread look just like some competitor of Timebuyer posting a bunch of crap trying to stick it to another dealer.

And then on top of it they only kept it up for a couple of days.

I read posts and reviews all over the place while I was getting ready to buy, and Timebuyer was okay.

If you've got the money, or great credit get a car the usual way.

If you've got a few problems Timebueyr's a lifesaver.

They were for me.

I went to Timebuyer and ran quickly once they told me how much a month and for how long. I ended up going to Townsand auto sales. I will highly recommend them. Very nice guys. Reasonable prices.

Wait. You don't want to get ripped off so you are saving your money to buy a car off Craigslist? Does that make sense to anyone?

It makes perfect sense. Save money and buy a car without a loan. No sky high intrest rates and no paying twice what a car is worth = Not getting riped off. Seems to make pretty good sense unless you are the ripper offer.
