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 click_click4@hotmail.com

You've got the right idea! People need to know and stop keeping them in business. Maybe try contacting the news. And also, put your posters up in areas that car-less people would frequent (bus stops, grocery stores, etc...) as well as around the dealerships. You're doing great! Bravo for all your work!

Well folks this is an update from the trenches. Yours truly has been out placing signs up at 3 of DRIVE TIME's Sales LOTS on South West Military DR. in San Anotnio. I think I may have got them a little upset.

So far approx. 250 signs have gone up letting the public know that "DRIVE TIME IS A RIP OFF" I have got one call from Drive Crime threating me with a law suit. I ask them to promise. But they wouldn't.

Another twist to it is I noticed they decided to start removing the posters I put up. That's okay! I have more Posters. But I will make it a little hard on them. I will put more signs up but only in major intersections and a little higher. The guy I saw taking the posters down is a little short. So the Public can see them removing my signs.

Just the other day while I was checking my posters that are still up I noticed a guy come out of the sales office, walk to the intersection next to the sales lot and waited for traffic to ease up. And then he reached up on the telephone pole and rip down my poster and put it in a bag and continue to rip off the other posters around the intersection. He then returned to the sales lot, got in a car with another guy and drove up and down Military looking for posters. YOU FORGOT SOME!!! This guy, I guess, lost interest real quick they turned the car around to chase a pretty girl walking down the road. CREEPS.

IF any one out there would like to help or if you need information on how to get started putting up poster, please send your info to Rip-off Report.com and refer to Report# 42517
