This is a story of years of dealing with a company that is taking advantage of many people. I went to J.D.Byrider almost 3 yrs ago because I have less than perfect credit and they sent a letter to pre-approve me. I went through the process of buying a 1993 JIMMY and traded in my paid for astro van. I drove off the lot with the Jimmy only to get home which was an hour away and it stop running. This was the start of the down hill trend. This problem was the fuel pump but in the process of fixing this my gas tank was leaking fuel. It was so rusted that it had holes in it. The first 30 days they had this truck more than me. I then was driving loaners through the company to get to work. Of the 4 cars I drove 2 stopped running on me for different reasons. I then had a friend that was an attorney run a car fax report to find the mileage had been turned back 50,000 miles. I then took it back to them telling them the attorney stated I was not to be held responsible. They then promised to find me a replacement. I got a 1994 Bravada that they gave me for the same price, payments etc. The day I signed the purchase papers the dash light went out before I left. They had to replace the whole dash cluster. I then left after this was fixed (1 week later) and the ABS system went out.

I then contacted them to be told that they would not fix it free I would be responsible for half the cost. This would have been around $300. I told them I refused to do this so still today the light is on and it makes the value of this go down when you go to trade. I recently decided maybe I wasn't giving them enough credit so I spoke with my account manager through CNAC and was told I had excellent payment history and credit and I could trade this in through them. To much of my little voice telling me not to I went to trade it in only to drive a vehicle that made a loud sound when the air conditioning was running but to be told after 2 hours of waiting in their showroom with an hour drive there that they didn't want to help me because my soon to be ex-husband filed a chapter 13 bankruptcy and they said it would include me even though my name is not on the bankruptcy and by the way they still want me to send them my payments, which shows a payoff on the screen I seen as $1200 but they are telling me a payoff of $1799 for a 1994 Bravada. This is a total scam if you ask me.

These people don't care about people or the price of how hard people work for their money but only to help their pockets. I want everyone to hear that they should stay away from people like this even though you may have less than perfect credit. That is what they pray on. They are hoping you will come to them so that you will still be paying them even after the car/truck is in vehicle heaven.

Everybody gets screwed! Don't feel like the Lone Ranger.

AUTHOR: Adolph - (U.S.A.)

These represent some of the necessary expenses in obtaining a JD Byrider franchise:

Costs & Fees
Total investment: $643.7K-4.2M
Franchise fee: $50K
Ongoing royalty fee: 3.5%
.
A couple of million just to have the pride of identifying yourself as one of the "we tote your note", "You work, you ride", "bad credit-no credit-no problem" (etc) we take and take used car dealer. Wow! That makes you a member in good standing in the exploitive, parasitic low life used car (should be used-up car)sales staff who troll for people down on their luck.
.
Thats a whole lot of money and ongoing expense to be given the roadmap to sell (back row) cars at premium prices. There are thousands of successful used car dealers who are masters of this technique who didn't spend a nickle on a **choke** 'franchise'. They are usually just as unprincipled, but not dumb enough to PAY to display a business name associated with a plethora of complaints.
.
Every time I pass a JD Byrider franchised lot, I shake my head in wonder. Another fool who spent a million or more to set up kind of an automotive 'flea market' concept of selling basically JUNK.
