HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — DriveTime, a growing used-car dealership, is expanding into Huntsville with its fourth location in the state.

The company is converting the former Barnhill’s Buffet at 3801 University Drive. The scheduled opening date is Nov. 16, said Vicky Bowen, DriveTime’s senior project manager.

DriveTime Automotive Group, headquartered in Phoenix, Ariz., operates 91 dealerships in 18 states, with one dealership each in Birmingham, Pelham and Mobile, according to the company’s website.

The company, which specializes in helping buyers with credit issues, also provides financing for substantially all of the vehicles it sells.

Each dealership stocks about 60 to 70 vehicles, with vehicle ages generally ranging from three to seven years, the company said.

David Garnett, an associate broker with Graham & Co. in Huntsville, represented the owner in the five-year lease of the property at University and Julia Street, and Jonathan E. Lindsey of The Shopping Center Group in Birmingham represented DriveTime.
