I wanted to buy and inexpensive new car, mainly to rebuild my credit history. Unfortunate circumstances forced us into bankruptcy 6 years ago and although my husband's credit history was back on track, we had not worked on mine. So, I went to Southwest Kia. Bill Dickinson looks so all-American-as apple pie on tv but ohhhhh boy!! The deal really didn't take that long, the car was around $15,000. I went in to see the corrupt finance guy, and even tho I was leary of the interest rate at almost 15%, I was assured that I could refinance in a year or so with good payment history. So, I figured I could do it for a year, after all, it wasn't their fault that I had to file bankruptcy some years back. I called Kia Motor Co. where the car is financed, and OOOPSS!! the corrupt finance guy forgot to tell me one important thing- Kia does NOT refinance- they are only liscensed to do original financing. So, I went to other finance sources now that my credit score is back up to almost 700, and NOBODY will refinance this vehicle!! NOBODY will touch it because my payoff is $5000 more than what I originally paid for the car, and by the time I get it paid off, I will have paid over $30,000!!! OH YEAH_ they told me about a program that if I sent business their way and the person bought a car, I would get a free car payment. It just so happened that my son was looking for a car for his wife, and was at Central Kia. I told him to go to Southwest. He did- and he bought a car but I didn't get the free car payment- something about they had to apply my car payment money for the referral to his down payment, and didn't think I would mind- after all- he WAS my son!! So not only did I get duped, I threw my son to the wolves as well. Fortunatley, his deal wasn't nearly as bad as mine. So now I'm stuck with this piece of Kia crap for 4 more years at $408 a month. Thanks Bill- next time I will beware of sheeps clothing.
