Additional Notes

Complaint: difficult to get a hold of and have no other payment option but to call in. I've left several messages and no call back. Payment is late no car! I have had my car for two years from thi sdealler and at the beginnning there was no real issue. I made my payments and I was fine. But issues seemed to have occured internally and since then its so difficult to get a hold of them to make a payment. They don't offer online payments or automatic bill pay so you are forced to call in. That a problem is they would contact you back. They are not understanding that they will shut off your car if the payment is late even though they never contact back or are difficult to speak to or in this case, are unable to be reached. Its a completely unfair practice and now I have a late payment that will affect my credit. I've asked multiple times to be contacted to see if I can set up a different payment method but no option. Then to make matters worse they moved from their original location and never disclosed that information. So the option to pay in person was removed as well since I had no idea where they moved to. I can't say these practices are illegal but, they don't seem ethical or fair.

Desired Settlement: I want to be able to pay my car payment monthly without any hassle.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 8, 2014/11/29) */ Last year our company had to downsize its staff and unfortunately, at this time we are unable to have a full time office person.
