DriveTime is one of the nation’s largest used car dealerships catering to
people with less-than-perfect credit. It has been accredited by the Better
Business Bureau or BBB in 2012. The simple and easy-to-use website of the
Arizona-based dealer has made car shopping and auto financing easier for
used-car buyers today.
The website is very easy to use. You won’t need to navigate your way to
where you need to go because DriveTime has everything you might need right
in their home page. You can search the inventory, apply for financing and
search the nearest DriveTime branch.
We like how DriveTime opted to leave the home page uncluttered with
simple, brief and straightforward content. Such content did not allow for
over bragging. If there was bragging, the testimonials did the job
The Dealer Locator is also accessible from the home page. Again, there’s
no need to find the page that will let you find the branches. Just scroll
down a little and you’ll see a map of DriveTime branches located near you.
They also have a short text for the home page which talks more about what
DriveTime is about and what they do. It is hidden in the More Info link at
the bottom of the Dealer Locator map. In vehicle search, we like how the
vehicles in stock are listed in a clean and simple fashion. It is not
difficult to find the vehicle information we need and the photos are also

your application. You can apply for financing by completing a form in the
