Ok.. first things first. i needed a car desperately so i found this place on craigslist that splits your sales tax into payments. I liked that. and that was the last thing i liked with this company. ok SO. I see a super cute little convertable sebring with a tear in the rough (minor problem to me for the perk of a convertable) so i take it . this car overheated and stalled in the middle of a huge road and i had to push it to a fire station IN HEELS. and wait  an hour and a half  ( on a satruday) for the tow truck to come and pick it.and drive 45 minutes back to there shop to "fix it" they gave me a different car while they were "fixing it" and then they came to the conclusion it was unfixable (the car they had just sold me HA) so i traded it in for a 96 jeep. i test drove it and it had a check engine light so i wasnt happy, he said it was an h20 sensor so i left they fixed it and i drove it home. within 45 minutes of leaving the ligth was back on. it stalled all the time, backfired, the dash lights didnt work, the gas gauge was inaccurate, just every problem you could think of. my payment was due on saturday  and it is now tuesday ( 3 days later) and they personally came and took my car (not with a tow truck, but one of the employess) from my job. i called and said whats going on its been three days and they said i would have to pay my car fee plus the "repo fee" of 300 dollars even though they did it themselves (im not suppose to know that but i have an inside source). i decided they could keep the dreadful car and said can i get my stuff since my wallet, school books, ids, cds, makeup and everything else is in the car, they said i'd have to pay 50 dollars to even get my things! my mom works for an attorney so i had her three way them and ask to fax over the contratc sayign i would have to pay 300 for repo fee and 50 to get my belongins and she said i have a copy, i told her my copy was in the car, she said thats unfortunate and she doesnt do three way calls. aka, the contract says nothing about that. this company has been the must unhonest, unethical, backstabbing, dirt ball company i have ever in my life used. with the exception of one awesome salesman this place is dreadful! my advice to anybody is you are an idiot if you even consider doing business with them.. repoed in three days.... ridiculous.... lesson learned. run while you can fellow readers. beware

A couple of things...

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

   1) The repo fee would not be specified as to amount in the contract. The fee could change during the length of your contract so the most the company would do is say you would owe the fee if the car is repoed. No matter who repos it.  

   2) If you decide to walk away from the car you need to realize that the company will probably sell it at auction. They will get less that your contract's full price so you will owe the difference.  Additionally the repo will appear on your credit report for 7 years, decreasing your score until it "falls off".

   3) The only legitimate complaint I saw was the $50 fee to recover your items. I would suggest talking to a lawyer to find out what the laws of your state/county/city say about a fee like this. I have never heard of being charged to recover your items.

Well the dealer ain't coming out of this looking too sweet either

AUTHOR: voiceofreason - (United States of America)

This customer doesn't strike me as having enough imagination to make her story up, so regardless of her undependability I'm going to assume this dealer sells crap to poor folks who don't know any better, on really bad terms, and if the next Florida hurricane destroys their lot, preferably with them in it at the time, I certainly won't shed a tear. To the OP my only advice is get a better grip on your financial priorities. Judging by your choice of car, shoes and car loans, the signs you're giving off are that these priorities might not be where they ought to be.

Cutting To The Chase

AUTHOR: Jim - (USA)

Bottom line:

YOU signed a contract which required YOU to make a payment on a due date and stated YOUR failure to make the payment on or before the due date could and would result in a repo.  YOU failed to make the payment on or before the due date.  They exercised their right, under terms of the contract, to repo the car which they did. 

BINGO!  END OF STORY!

Whether or not the car had problems is NOT the issue.  YOU failed to perform under terms and conditions of the contract.  Apparently the prospect of a repo and/or bad credit is not of concern to you as you stated they can keep the car.

Perhaps instead of bad mouthing them because they exercised their rights under the contract because YOU failed to do yours...perhaps you should look up the words:

"integrity"
"honesty"
"maturity"
"responsibility"
"contracts"
"failure to perform"
"security"
"subprime credit"

You can go to any lawyer you wish.  The bottom line here is YOU failed to perform under terms of a legally binding contract which YOU agreed to.  The seller exercised their rights accordingly.

There's NO case here!

SHALOM!
