Drivetime RIPOFF lied, false information Downey California
ok coming from a 20 year old girl, just trying to do something on her own without a co-signer this is just ridiculous. i have had my car for exactly 21 days and have had the car into the mechanics 3 times now. 2 times they told me nothing is wrong with it, that is how the car is suppose to run. 3rd time fixing the supposive problem and a day later acting up again. ok 1... if you do this 96 point inspection, being mechanics you should be aware of a problem in a car. granite i don't know a thing about cars, i know when i car is running correctly.
They told me there was nothing to do because the car wasn't running that way when they had it. well screw you. do you think i am lying about it, just so i can waist my time getting the damn thing fixed, being without a car, a new car that i just bought and was so excited about. ok yeah it's a used car and i am aware that there is going to be problems, but when your paying them as much money as we are there should not be problems within the first month. and if there are, they need to fix it within that month. they fed me a storie about this 18 year old who bought my car before me and brought it back a day later, stating his grandma died and decided he couldn't afford the payments anymore.
They also told me that if within 30 days i'm not satisfied or feel i can't make the payments that i could come back. now they are telling me this isn't true. and for those who are talking about people with bad credit, i don't have bad crefit i just have no points on my credit therefore a regular dealership wouldn't accept me without a co-signer and considering i didn't want to use a co-signer and wanted to be able to do this on my own this was my only choice. little did i know i was going to get screwed over. wow shows what happens to you when you actually do try to be responsible and take action.
This has nothing to do with me not affording the payments, or complaining about the price, i was well aware of how high my interest rate was when i signed that contract. i would have never signed it though if they wouldn't have ranted and raved about how reliable this car is, how the engine last up 250,000 miles...blah blah blah. the car supposivly was checked out before selling and i was even givin paper work about the inspection. while driving home that very same day 10 mintues after i bought the d**n car the thing starts acting up. the rpm is idling to about 4-5. i can't get it to stop unless the brake is complete on the floor and when letting off the brakes the car takes off with no foot on the gas. the brakes are squeeking so loud i could barely hear anything. i call that night and leave them a message. no phone call back. so i go down there the next day and i get oh yeah will get it fixed for ya i have to wait a week for my appointment. finally i go down there..oh we have no record of you making an appointment your gonna have to wait all day in order for us to look at it. no i have work i can't do that. so i make another appointment that same week. waited 7 hours for them to fix my brakes and to tell me there is nothing wrong with it. i start driving off on the freeway, the car starts jumping, idling so high, going, then not going. by far the scariest drive i've ever had. oh yeah theres nothing wrong with it, MY A**. called back the second i got home and had to make another appointment, but once again had to wait a week. took it in and re-placed the idle speed motor. ran great till the next day when it started doing the same things again. all this in 21 days of having it. haven't even made my first payment yet.
Someone has to know something i can do. or we can do. this is not fair. we are all agreeing to these high interest rates and they are stealing our money pretty much. i'll admit i should have looked more into it, but i was ignorant to it all. doing these things on your own you make risky choices, but i haven't even had the damn car for a month. telling me the reason their closed on sundays is because the have to go to CAR CHURCH what the h**l is that. this is ridiculous and is not fair, not to me and anyone else that is put in those shoes. we are all trying to make it in this world one way or another, but nobody deserves to be scammed like this. especially when buying cars one of the biggest investment we all do. public transportation man....screw cars
