Our program is specifically designed to assist those who are credit-impaired or establishing credit for the first time. The intent is to place a customer in the vehicle which supports their needs. Lending is not credit based, but income and stability are. Payments are designed to give the customer the ability to succeed without creating a financial hardship. We make the idea of car ownership a reality. 
  • A wide selection of vehicles that have gone through a comprehensive inspection before reaching our lot. 
  • All vehicles come with a 30-day/ 1,000 mile complete engine and axle warranty PLUS a 12,000 mile / 12-month Powertrain warranty on each vehicle. And they have NO deductibles to worry about. 
  • Financing regardless of your credit
  • Affordable down payments; some vehicles start as low as $0.99
  • Trust and Respect
  • Complete explanation of the terms of the sale
  • Top ranked customer service

Every deal is set up with reoccurring payments that are schedule to coincide with a customers' pay dates - weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly or monthly. The payment is set to automatically debit a customer's bank account or payment card. This takes the stress our of remembering to call or mail in your payment. 

We report monthly updates on all the customer accounts to a National Credit Agency which helps build and/or repair your credit score. 

Every vehicle has a Total Loss Protection Plan above the customer's primary insurance coverage. This ensures that your loan will be paid in full in the event of a total loss accident. 

As part of the Hunter family, we take our commitment of the community seriously, and work hard to provide a reward experience for each of our customers. 

In addition to offering a quality selection of used cars, trucks, SUVs and vans at affordable prices, we also work hard to make every driver's ownership experience more rewarding. We do this from the moment you step onto our lot by offering down payments as low as $0.99 and monthly reporting to all three credit bureaus. Plus, every vehicle we sell includes a 12,000-mile / 12-month (whichever comes first) powertrain warranty, and we also offer total loss insurance, so you can drive confidently, knowing your investment is protected.
