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.

"I was searching literally everywhere for someone to sell me the truck that I wanted.. They all wanted to sell me, “what they wanted me to have.” But I saw the commercial for Godwin Motors with the cute little girl “we finance you and not your credit!!” So I filled out an application online and shortly after I received a call from Isaac. He was very polite, honest and willing to work with me! I have been treated extremely courteous and like family by all of the staff at Godwin Motors! If you’re looking a family owned business COME TO GODWIN MOTORS AND ask for Isaac! He is awesome!"
