So true. I had two coworkers that were paying $400 and $500 a month on cars that were several years old. In the end it was going to cost them about $11,000 for a $3,000 car. Of course the payments were so high, they couldn't afford to pay the cars off. I mean seriously, who else charges that much a month for a used car?

and if you let it go back because you can't afford it they will sell it really cheap and then sue you for the difference. when the specially tell you that it won't affect you if you decide you can't handle the payments. they LIE.

I don't doubt what you say at all. I was floored when I found out how much money they were paying. At the time I had a vehicle that was 3 years old and my payments weren't even $200 a month. I know people claim Car Mart helps people who have bad credit. In the case of my coworkers they helped them alright, they helped them make it worse!

Surprising that people don't understand how a note lot works. If you have bad credit, expect to have to pay more, it is a simple concept.

If you have good credit, go somewhere else and use the bank for financing. Simple.

It's one thing to expect to pay more, it's another thing to lie and take advantage of someone. Thank God I don't have to deal with these shady businesses. I know many people in this area that don't have good credit and still manage not to pay $400 or $500 a month on a used vehicle that ends up being $11,000.

how else would you expect a buy here pay here lot to make$. You guys make very little sense. There is a reason you have to buy there in the first place.. You generally don't have a great track record for being smart with $. Do you expcet them to front you all that $ for a number of years with no profit or very little profit?? Nonsense.

Didn't you know we are in the age of entitlement? I mean it doesn't matter what you have done in the past to have the credit score you earned, it matters only what you want. If people didn't live way beyond their means, screw up their credit in the process because they couldn't pay the debts THEY made, then they would not be in a position to need a buy-here / pay-here auto dealer. Think about it this way. If there were no buy-here / pay-here dealers in this area, how many people couldn't get a car at all? I do not agree with any business sugar coating a deal or lying to make it sound different than it is, that is plain wrong. But to fault a business for charging what they do for a product is not correct. First, NOBODY forced you or anyone else to purchase that vehichle they just HAD to have. They walked onto the lot by their own free will. They also signed the paperwork and agreed to make the payments. Nobody forced them to do ANY of it. If you don't like the price, terms, agreement,,,,,then go somewhere else. But if you made the agreement, then stop bitching about it after the fact and man up to your responsibilities that you agreed to do. And for those of you who can't seem to understand why they price the vehicles the way they do,,,,,ask them how many of their "clients" go bad on their notes. I would be willing to bet that at the end of the business year, they probably don't make near the amount of profit most people seem to think they do with all of the bad debt they must suck up. And if they do make a huge profit, more power to them. Last I checked we were a capatilist country.

(Southern Hills Auto) I also know of a couple whom is mentally challenged to say the least. They both operate off of a monthly disability check. If anyone would spend five minutes with these people you would know they have no business making ANY kind of legal transaction without a legal guardian present. It is just that obvious.
They get sold a vehicle! I was furious when they told me. Granite they needed another vehicle. They made the transaction paying full sticker price (which no one does in the "smartworld" and after a couple of weeks engine and battery light came on.
After given advice by others, they took it down there. They didnt fix it, they just told them "must have been a glitch."
GLITCH OR NO GLITCH...stand behind your product!

The couple is on a fixed income and was in and out of the car lot within 30 min with a newer vehicle. It shouldnt have happen to begin with ..so at least take care of your customers you take advantage of.

I just think it's sad that people have bad credit and have to go to companies like these people. By bad credit I mean hospital bills and things of that nature. This not to insult anybody I am just saying that their are good people who deserve good in their life.

So how is a business to determine who is mentally challenged and who is not? Ever heard of discrimination? That is a lawsuit waiting to happen! Excuse me sir but you don't "seem" mentally capable of making a transaction therefore I am not going to sell you a car. Wow! Most used cars are sold "as is" and is all over the paperwork you sign. Sad as it is, that is the risk you take in buying a used car. Ever buy a used car from an individual? Think you can just take it back to them everytime something goes wrong?? I don't think so!

Most people w/medical bills can still get vehicles financed unless that is the only credit they have and it is bad. If you cannot get financed at one of the high risk banks and have to use a buy here/pay here...you either have no credit or bad credit. Plain and simple.

I have a car from Carmart. My monthly payment is 324 a month. There was a 5 month gaurantee on the car and when the oxygen sensor went out on it they paid to have it fixed right away. The car I have is a good car. One time I had to make a late payment and they were very nice about it. I think it's a great place to purchase a car. Yes, the payments are a little high, but that is to be expected.

That place is just a rip-off you would be better off to walk in and give them $500 and let everyone in the building kick you in the ball until you spit up blood in the long run that would be less painful and you wouldn’t have to put up with their BS

I was buying a SUV from car mart and before I picked it up they had it "getting detailed" well they told me it had a small vacuum leak & they had it fixed well a week after having the vehicle it started acting up so i asked them to fix it and they told me I would have to pay for it when it had "warranty". I will NEVER recommend car mart to no one. I mean its prolly good 4 ppl who desperately need a ride but WOW they are over priced. They wanted me to pay 10,500 for a 98 expedition and I like to of fell over! Good luck 2 the ones who have better luck then I did!
