J.D. Byrider was founded in 1979 by James F. DeVoe, after years of experience selling used cars. He set up a system to help people with less-than-perfect credit finance a vehicle in their price range. The J.D. Byrider model first figures out a customer’s financial situation, and then helps them to find a vehicle they can afford. Franchised in 1989, J.D. Byrider has more than 130 dealerships operating in the United States.
