The women of the wildly successful DriveTime campaign are back to help out more wannabe car buyers. This time, we get a glimpse into their private lives as they hit the nail salon and rap along to the inimitable beats of Bay Area legend, E-40. But, as usual, they’ve still got their mind on saving you money and saving you money on their mind.

Tina, Tara and the green rescue van are at it again in three new spots for DriveTime — including (if you’re paying attention) one bumpin’ a lil “Turn Down for What.” The loopy ladies are once more putting wheels under peeps who’d previously been locked out of car-buying entirely. This is D/C’s third set of commercials for the Phoenix-based client, which operates 130 dealerships nationwide and has seen sales leads bumpin’ up more than 30% since the start of the campaign.

Late last year, DriveTime, the number-one used car chain for the credit-strapped, introduced a new TV campaign called “Rescued.” Forgoing downscale sales tactics and downbeat credit messaging, the spots were a radical departure from anything the client had done before. And the results were just as radical:

Double-digit sales growth across all markets during the Polar Vortex when almost every other player — used or new — was reporting losses.

Today, the campaign rolls on with three new spots playing across the country. Ride along with our intrepid rescuers as they put the fun back into car-buying for three more lucky abductees.

With over 94 dealerships across the country and half-a-million cars sold, DriveTime is the largest auto dealer helping consumers buy a great used car with or without great credit. After a comprehensive search driven by Pile & Company, the acceleration-minded company signed Duncan/Channon, the original pedal-to-the-metal agency, as its strategic and creative partner. And the agency, already developing a new DriveTime TV and radio campaign for early 2013, is pumped.
