That’s also why we try to help you stay on the road with our excellent service centers. Most of our service technicians are ASE Certified, and all of them are highly trained. Plus, our labor rates are about half the standard rate, and parts are at cost, which we negotiate down with our suppliers.

Our Mission

Our company purpose has always been, “To provide a program that exceeds our customers' expectations and maximizes their opportunity for advancement." We believe our customers can walk through our doors and get more than just a car—they can get on their way to a better life and better credit.

This change is possible because we’re committed to reporting every one of our customers’ on-time payments to all three credit bureaus. This helps customers who make timely payments build a positive payment history. Combined with paying all your bills on time, it could put you in a good position to raise your credit score.

We also try to set you up for success with affordable payments based on your situation. And, when you make those payments, you have up to six easy options to choose from, including direct deposit and paying by text.

Our History

Our founder, James DeVoe, a Chevrolet-Cadillac dealer, had a goal to help people get reliable transportation, even if they were turned down for traditional bank financing. In 1979, he began financing customers at his own car lot. He created Auto Credit seminars to teach other business owners how to do on-site financing in 1986 and founded J.D. Byrider a few years later in 1989.

Mr. DeVoe’s based his business off of his desire to give customers a chance to be able to improve their credit scores while driving dependable cars that came with affordable payments that fit into their budgets. When he founded J.D. Byrider, it was with the idea that he could set up a franchise that would help other business owners provide the same benefits to customers across the nation.

For over 25 years, we’ve held true to his original way—the family way—of doing business.

Mr. DeVoe’s vision is why we’ve sold more than 1.1 million cars. We’re the largest dealership network of our kind in the United States, with 167 locations in 34 states. Our satisfied customers around the nation prove we’re the way to go for an easy approval process and reliable vehicles, and we think that’s something Mr. DeVoe would be proud of.
