One of my dearest friends lives in Phoenix Arizona, and she is like me where she never complains about how hot it is!! We always got along well, because we seemed to always be cold.
Anyway, she called me a few weeks ago to say that her car had just died and she didn't know how on earth she would be able to get another one. She would have to be looking for Used Cars, and pretty quickly, too! You see, her ex-husband had ruined her credit pretty badly during their marriage, and after the marriage ended, she found out that all the cards they held jointly, put her in a credit shambles. She seemed so distraught, not over her marriage being over, but because her credit rating now stunk, and with her needing a new vehicle to get to work, she didn't know what she would do?
She called last week to say that she is sure she is getting a car now, thanks to a great company called Drive Time. This is a company located in Phoenix (and around Arizona) that offers their own financing and is geared towards people with less than wonderful credit.
She said this was like a godsend for her, when she found them, they offer competitive rates and she took the instant online approval thing on their website, and as long as she has a job that they can verify, she will qualify!! How great does that sound?? I am so happy for her!! She really needs this car, and it is nice to know that there are some dealers out there who will help someone out, even if their credit rating isn't good. This was not her fault, so to be penalized by every lender who thinks she is a credit risk, is just not fair. Thank goodness she found DriveTime, and it seems like it was just in the nick of time too!!
Till Next Time,
