About Godwin Motors

Getting the right vehicle is often easier than finding the right dealership. Sometimes, you can have your hopes set on a vehicle only to realize that they will not sell it to you because of your credit, even if you have the ability to pay. At Godwin Motors, we don’t think that’s fair. That’s why we opened Godwin Motors in 1985. As Columbia’s oldest buy here pay here dealership, we have been serving Lexington, Greenwood, Sumter, West Columbia, Dentsville, Elgin, Blythewood, Winnsboro, Orangeburg, and more for over 30 years!

Since we are a buy here pay here dealership, we can get you financed without the approval of a bank. We do the financing in house. Even if you have bad credit or no credit, we can still get you financed right here at Godwin Motors. What’s more, we report all your payments to the major credit bureaus so you can be on your way to rebuilding your credit.

We can finance on the spot, but we can also ensure that you get into a great vehicle. All of our cars are detailed so they look beautiful. They also must pass a rigorous 121-point inspection to ensure that they are the quality that we want our customer to leave our lot in. These are not old high mileage cars either. These are low mileage late model vehicles with all the technology, options, features, and safety of a modern vehicle. We even include a 12 month / 12,000 mile powertrain and ac warranty on all of our certified cars.

We stand behind you long after you buy your vehicle. We have a service department that can take care of all your automotive service needs. We even have one of the lowest labor rates in town, and we can provide you with shuttle service, pickup and delivery, or even a loaner vehicle.

In addition to our service department, we also have a full fleet of rental vehicles. At Godwin Motors, you can rent without a credit check or even a credit card. If you can’t rent from other big name car rental companies, you can probably rent from us.

"We were sent here by a friend and so happy with both the customer service and our new car. Isaac was so helpful with the whole process and our car has been wonderful and exactly what we needed. They have a warranty on the vehicles and offer great cars that are inspected thoroughly. We would definitely buy another car here. Thank you so much."
"I've been dealing with Godwin motors for years and the service here are great. My very first car was a 2004 Ford contour and any problems I had then were always taken care of. And 4 years ago I bought a 2007 Chevy HHR. And been dealing with Jared Christie every since where he is very courteous and friendly. The service is great and would highly recommend getting your next car from Godwin Motors. Where the customers actually matters.Good quality cars ."
"I enjoyed my experience with Godwin motors, but most importantly with my salesman Isaac Burt. From the time I called to the 24 hours later that I was driving off with my infinity, he has done nothing but the most excellent job I have ever seen in car selling history. I would like to add to my review. I put down $1500 on my car less than 60 days ago. Unfortunately, my job caused me to become 30 days past due. I tried to let them know that it wasn't my fault, but they repossessed the car about a week ago. Then when I came up with the money by borrowing it from family, they said I had to pay the car in total. I have never heard of this before. Me and my kids were left stranded and couldn't get to school. Besides recently having my previous car stolen, I feel like I was robbed again. They got $1500 dollars and I got nothing. All in a matter of 44 days. I am at fault for being late, but not being able to get the car back is a total rip off and not fair. So be careful, because when trying to explain, the owner hung up in my face and right before Christmas. Every story doesn't have a happy ending."
"Nice people and good cars. Prices are not bad, at all. Sarita was my salesperson and she was awesome. One minor fix to my car next week and it's near perfect."
"From the first time I walked in, I felt welcomed. I was greeted and ultimately handled by Isaac, and I knew I was in great hands. He made sure I was knowledgeable about everything I was signing, and when I visited again he had my oil changed for free. I’m so thankful for this experience. So everyone make sure you come see Isaac! He’s amazing."
"After seeing them on tv, and reading all the amazing reviews; my husband and I decided to stop by. Needless to say we left a little disappointed. One person..."
