Voted #1 in Financing

We are the finance company. With 100% of the financing done in-house, we get 99% of our customers approved in 15 minutes or less guaranteed. At DriveSmart, you won't have to wait for hours like you do at other dealerships that take forever and typically say NO. Good credit, bad credit, slow credit, or no credit at all? No problem! We approve YOU. Not your credit. And the best part… our short-term financing model allows you to pay it off quick. Just 36 to 42 months and the title is yours!

Voted # 1 in Reliability

We understand how important it is to have a vehicle you can rely on. That’s why we carefully, hand select every vehicle we purchase before we send it through our own on-site Service Center for reconditioning. Last, we ensure each vehicle passes our rigorous 172-point performance inspection and drive test before we make it available to you. To make our customers feel even more confident, we attach a complete Carfax History Report, a 60 day/2000-mile Limited Warranty, and Gap Coverage to every vehicle at no additional cost to you.
