Back in 12-05-02, I placed a rip off report about a 1998 Chev. Prizm I bought from UGLY DUCKLING now DRIVE TIME. Less than 2 month later I spent $1,500.00 to replace the CV shaft and the struts. This company is a rip off.
I was unable to get the vehicle registration from them until late Dec. of 2002 almost 6 month after I bought the car. I used the car for a little over 2 months until the 2nd dealers plate expired. I repeatedly called them and all I got were excuses; lost papers, "We already sent for it", "it's lost in the system", or they plain just hung up on me.
When I did get the vehicle registration, I noticed the license plate number on the car did not match the license plate number on the vehicle registration. The VIN numbers matched. So I took off to the county tax office to get new registration sticker and plates and was told the plates and sticker would not expired till next year. I call UGLY Ducking to find out if they had the sticker and plates. They placed me on hold and never came back. Weeks later they came by my house at 4:18 am and picked up the car.
On that date I started to place signs (11"x14" poster boards) on telephone polls around DRIVE TIME dealerships in my area. Informing the public of my experience with DRIVE TIME. I ask all those who have had experiences with DRIVE TIME (UGLY DUCKLING) to place their experiences on 11"x14" boards and place them in front of any DRIVE TIME dealership. It's Tax Time. We should help people by letting them know of the bad experience we have had with DRIVE TIME. IF YOU NEED INFORMATION ON HOW YOU CAN HELP TAP ME AN E-mail at email@example.com
