*Consumer Comment: Does it really matter who keeps the money when you've been overcharged?
As consumers, we would like to call to your attention an abusive practice being used by auto dealerships to overcharge consumers without their knowledge. We believe that the practice is especially prevalent in situations involving minorities who have little or no prior experience with consumer loans. This practice often involves a two-tier approach. In addition to misleading consumers regarding their credit ratings and, therefore, the interest rates available to them, dealers knowingly quote rates to buyers at the high end of the rate scale available to them based upon their credit tier in order to sell their installment sale contracts to finance companies, including the auto manufacturer captive finance companies, at premiums that are not disclosed to the buyers. This practice results in significant additional costs to unwitting consumers who often happen be those who can least afford it. The practice also violates at least the spirit of the federal Truth-in-Lending laws in that it deprives consumers of material information necessary to make an informed decision as to whether accept a particular loan. In recent years, there has been legislative and agency action in the residential mortgage industry to require disclosure of a similar practice in that industry, the payment of yield spread premiums to mortgage brokers and bankers. We believe that similar action is necessary to adequately protect consumers against the abusive practices prevalent today in the auto dealer industry. Accordingly, we call upon the auto industry to voluntarily begin requiring dealers to disclose the range of interest rates available to a consumer based upon his or her credit tier and the premium payable to the dealer for the various rates available in his or her tier and we also call upon Congress and the FTC to enact legislation and rules that require this disclosure.
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
Let's be truly Toyota Motor Credit has continued to deceive many of their customers. And I am one of them. Please tell your customer who has had a Toyota Repo. How the game really works. According to the loan industry,
Banks have insurance on loans. So if the bank reposes the automobile, does not your insurance cover the debt, then your company writes it off on the company taxes. The next year earning it shows profit. Not from the true earnings. But from all the collections.
So tell me as a repeat customer your company has change the Texas Finance code to benefit TMC. Where does it state in this section interest is calculated from the last payment received. If it is a simple interest loan.
Since Toyota loves the repeat customers so much, tell the customers and the public, why I was offered another 17.7% (tier 4) with 72(tier4) months as an encore customers. (This type of rate is for high risk) The first was 17.4% with 72 months. or say your customer has great credit. Instead of 5.99% Toyota offers them a 8.99% Your franchised dealerships receive all and any interest rates for the lenders. So stop telling customers you are an indirect lender.
Tell your customers there is a range of tier 1, 2, 3, 4 what you offer the customer is not the true interest rate. Your bank is a tier 1 they purchased bonds to buy the rates. They purchase rates as low as 1-4% to sell. So how much profit are you stealing from the customers who are not knowledgeable.
Please do not shop at Toyota of Irving (texas) or Patt Lobb(texas) or Ourisman Toyota (FAIRFAX)
Tell the world why your company only pulls from Equifax. Because Equifax gives the lowest beacon score. Example Equifax rounds the numbers to the lowest. The truly daily is the pier Diem rate example 13.47 x 30 off the balance of the loan. 2005 This will be the interest taken out of the monthly payment.
2007 9.47x30 the due date the 24th of each month.
MS.MORALES in the office of President. 310.468.1310 REMOVED PAYMENTS AND CHANGED DOCUMENTS SO IT WOULD ALWAYS SO 30 DAYS BEHIND.
