UGLY DUCKLING AKA DRIVETIME ripoff DISHONEST SALESMEN To this day I still receive letters from the new company "drive time" requesting payment on the car GARLAND TEXAS Nationwide
*Consumer Comment: You apparently are still learning
OK I'm not writing to complain about the car because I understood what "sold as is" meant. Yes my car was a piece of garbage and not worth the $10,000 they were charging me.
My issue was with the pay ontime for 6 months and receive your downpayment back or visa credit card. Since my downpayment was $2000 I chose to have it returned to me. When the time came for them to pay up I was told that I wouldn't receive my money back until the car is 90% paid up.
Well the car never made it that far. My 3rd year of paying my note and numerous repairs the car finally died for good and I was told the costs of repairs would exceed the value of the car. So I decided it would be best to get another car instead. Since I only owed THE DUCK a little under $2000 on the car I figured they would just take that from the downpayment I was promised back, never happened.
To this day I still receive letters from the new company "drive time" requesting payment on the car. I'm debating on whether to pay the small sum off or just chuck it up as a loss since it's on my credit anyway. I was only 19 when I got the car (a first time buyer w/no credit) and they were the only ones to take me in. This was a learning experience.
Oh yeah I forgot to mention that I never received registration tags from THE DUCK for an entire year until I had to renew them the second year. They just kept giving me those paper tags month after month.
