4 months ago i put my 1997 honda odessy that needed a little work but was still running as a down payment for a $1200 1988 jeep cherokee. The jeep was $1200, so mr walker gave me $400 credit for the van and i would owe $800 in payments.
The Jeep was nothing but a piece of junk. It broke down over and over in the first 2-3 months i had it. i had to pay for ALL repairs myself. That jeep had more problems than i can even list.
He never gave me ANY paper work for it, just handed me the title with a lein on it. I never missed a payment. When i paid my last payment, paying off the $800 he said it would be, he then informed me that i now owe him TWO HUNDRED more dollars for "interest" This was the first time he had ever mention thi s. but i had no choice but to keep paying it.
Two weeks later ( and $100 more in payments) the motor on the jeep blew. I was stranded on the side of the road with my two small children who were also sick at the time. I called mr walker since he is a mechanic, and i was buying the ccar from him. he was very hateful, showed up a little while later and procedded to cuss me in front of my kids, hooked up the jeep to take it back to his shop even though i had not asked him to, while leaving me and my chidren literally stranded on the side of the road in the cold.
He called later being very rude and hateful, telling me all he could do was put another motor in it for a THOUSAND dollars. He knew i was dead broke after putting so much money into that jeep. And now had no transportation at all. In the first 3 months i had it i had to pay to have new brakes and rotors on, a new battery and he charged me $140 just to put on a used starter!
I told him i could not afford to fix the jeep, i would have to sale it to try to come up with enough money to get a cheap car. i I told him i would pay off th2014-01-15e last $100 he said i owed when i sold it. . He told me i could not sale it because i now owed him $200 more dollars for the tow and storage fees (total B.S.) and he was going to take the jeep for what i "owed" and starting that day he would be charging me $50 a day for storage.
I asked him if he thought this was the right way to treat someone in my postion, he cussed me out again, called me every name he could and told me he could do whatever the hell he wanted, that he would take the jeep and i would never see it again and there was nothing i could do because he still had the title, He said he would repo it even though i was up to date on my payments and owed him nothing! In the end he got my 97 honda van plus over $1000 for a piece of crap jeep that only lasted 4 months!
This man is nothing but a rip off and a scam artist. PLease dont trust him with anything, Do not buy anything from him or let him do any work on your cars. HE WILL RIP YOU OFF!!
