Start The Car-Buying Process Today!

Is this your first time purchasing a vehicle? Are you wondering what it would look like to finance your car, or want to know if it’s in your budget to pay off a used vehicle all at once? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, it’s time to head on over to Auto Depot. We boast a reliable Finance Department that is happy to work around your credit to find you an affordable payment plan that suits your budget. Visit us today at 1811 E. Divisadero St. in Fresno, CA, to meet with a member of our staff and to take a closer look at our inventory!

You can start the car-buying process before you step into our showroom. You can get an in depth look at our inventory by visiting our website. Here you can look at every car on our lot and even filter your search by make, model, fuel economy, price, and more! Once you find the vehicle you like, you can click on it and look at the detailed information such as awards it has received, interior features, and more. To start the financing process simply click on the Guaranteed Finance tab and complete the Finance Application. Once the application is submitted, your information is forwarded for approval on a car loan and we will then typically contact you within one hour with the status and details on your auto loan. If you want a better understanding of your financial situation, you can use the Payment Calculator, also located on our site, to determine your buying power and monthly budget.

If you are a recent graduate, there is no need to worry, we work with several lenders that have first time buyer programs. These programs are designed for people with little to no credit. Even in some cases you can get into a vehicle with as little as $500 down. If you have no credit, don’t fret, our special first-time buyer program available will help you get into a car under $15,999 with as little as $500 down. When you find the car you like, make sure to schedule a test drive. You can do so from the comfort of your couch by completing the application on our site. Getting behind the wheel of a car will give you the chance to see if it is the right ride for you.

We understand the car-buying process can be scary, so if you are a first-time car buyer near Bakersfield, CA, we urge you to come visit us at Auto Depot. Our reliable staff will ensure you have a great experience. We look forward to meeting you!

Where do I begin, due to life, my credit isn’t the best and I was told by what seemed like everyone that getting an suv just wasn’t possible for me. I was approved elsewhere for cars but the payments were outrageous and it wasn’t at all what I wanted. I needed a car and almost settled. I started looking around and found Auto Depot, saw several suvs that I liked and figured what could it hurt and submitted my pre approval application. I got a call from Sam and I within 30 minutes he had me approved for a Chevy equinox with low miles 🤭. I had to work so I couldn’t go that day next day I went down there and ended up getting an even better deal on a Hyundai Tucson even lower miles! I worked with Jeff and Sam and before I knew it I was driving to work in a beautiful suv with low miles and an unbelievably low payment! I am astounded that they can do what they do and would recommend them to anyone! If you have been told it’s not possible don’t settle, go to them they will get it done!

AD of Fresno did the best they could do with the amount I had. Steve worked well with my boyfriend and I to get us a decent car for a good price with very, very low mileage. I would recommend this place to anyone if they were looking in Fresno locally or in the Central Valley.

Purchased a F-150 King ranch EcoBoost, go Texas longhorns!!! Pedro and Sam we're knowledgeable and definitely made my purchase experience of a used car from AD Fresno the best it could possibly be. I really appreciated how they we're straightforward about the truck and how they dealt with negotiating the price. Thumbs up and keep up the good work all y'all..
