Joydrive is the first digital solution for you to buy or lease new and pre-owned cars from a dealer, without visiting the dealer. You can complete your entire purchase online, including trade-in, financing, home delivery in as fast as one day (or, do everything ahead of time and pick up in-store), and a 5-day return period. No games, hassle-free prices and 100% transparency.
All vehicles are owned by Joydrive's handpicked dealers. Please see the dealer contact information for the exact address, and please update your zip code to calculate your estimated delivery cost (first 100 miles are free).
Yes! Because Joydrive works with a network of handpicked dealers, you get access to both new and pre-owned vehicles to buy or lease, more vehicle selection, a faster and easier process, and you can trust your vehicle will be handled by licensed professionals with consistency across all brands.
Each pre-owned vehicle has had an in-depth background check verified by the Joydrive Dealer Member. An accident report can be provided for free by your Joydrive Dealer Member.
Joydrive provides you upfront the actual price you will pay, often the best price available. Certain automotive manufacturers do not allow this price to be shown until you create an account.
To see the price, simply visit the vehicle in question and click “Get Joydrive Price” to start a deal and see your “savings”. This won’t require you to actually purchase this vehicle, and you can easily remove the deal from your Dashboard if you decide not to buy it.
You can use your own bank or credit union, or you can select “I’d like financing” if you would like help acquiring financing. Joydrive Dealer Members utilize a network of lenders that offer competitive and fair rates quickly and efficiently.
All paperwork is handled by your Joydrive Dealer Member and delivered to you during the delivery. Joydrive also protects your information by using secure SSL forms, encrypted connections, and your personal information is only used on your vehicle transaction.
You will need to upload your driver's license and insurance card during the checkout process. If your Joydrive Dealer Member is helping you acquire financing, you will also need to complete an online credit application, and some banks may require additional information such as Proof of Income from within the last 30 days.
How VSC & GAP Help
Don’t forget to add protection to your purchase during checkout! A vehicle service contract can safeguard your investment from costly mechanical repairs, and GAP Protection guards you in a case of a 'total loss' on your vehicle. You can change your mind at any time before delivery.
VSC: Safeguard Your Investment
At a low monthly cost, a Vehicle Service Contract (VSC) can provide peace of mind that your vehicle is protected against unexpected repairs.
VSC coverage can include most parts, ranging from engine, transmission and transfer case, drive axle (front and rear), steering, brakes, cooling, fuel system, suspension, air conditioning and heating, electrical components, high tech components, and seals and gaskets. It can also come with other perks, like towing and roadside assistance, lost key/lockout, rental coverage, and trip interruptions. Please contact your Joydrive Dealer Member for specific details.
GAP: Protect Your Finances
In case of a total vehicle loss (such as that caused by accident, theft, or natural disaster), Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) can protect you by paying the difference between the amount owed on your finance contract and the actual cash value of your vehicle. Please connect with your Joydrive Dealer Member for specific details.
You can find your Joydrive Dealer Member's contact information on the vehicle page if you have questions about the vehicle. Once you begin a deal, you can message your Dealer Member at any time throughout the checkout process by clicking the "Message dealer" button.
With every purchase Joydrive Dealer Members offer you 5 days and up to 250 miles to drive the vehicle how you will actually use it. If you choose to return it, click ‘Request a Refund’ and your Joydrive Dealer Member will help you complete the process as long as the vehicle is in the same condition as received. .
