Additional Notes

Complaint: I am writing with a complaint due to the fact in February 08, 2013 I paid 1,300 and my balance owed was 3,436.26 and then on February 13,2013 they then said my balance was 4,994.41... I have print out of payments made and my truck also needs work done and my warranty was good until August 2013.. they had me get an estimate around April/May and because the repairs was over 2,500 they would not honor it.. I feel that when they where doing the repairs to my truck that instead of using the warranty to pay for the work that they where attaching the repair bill to the end of my payments and not to mention when I got my truck back from them in February I had belongings stolen out of my truck and I had confronted them twice about it... I know others that also had issues with this comp

Desired Settlement: to purchase a more reliable and safe vehicle as it won't pass inspection and they somehow had it reinspected in february and the inspection was good until sept 2013

Business Response: August 22,2013

RE: Response to complaint ID ******* from ****** **** ****
I have examined and reviewed **. ****’s complaint and will respond accordingly.

First of all, much relevant information was omitted in the complaint, starting with **. *****s vehicle was currently impounded *********, Maryland at the time and her account was past due (9) payments. I can provide a detailed ledger to support that statement. Communication with **. **** was that she did not have the money to get her car out of impound status. We proceeded with repossession procedure of first paying the impound fees of348,00 to ********* ****** invoice ***** in addition to repo. Fees of $450,00 to get the vehicle back to our lot.

At this point we were assuming contact with **. **** was past and we proceeding to refurbish the vehicle for resale. At the 11th hour, **. **** said she could put 1300.00 towards her past balance if she could get her vehicle back.

We agreed to give her another chance but she would need to be responsible for part of the repair bills. See attachments for the two invoices: #**** on 2/19/13 for 1829.91 was not charged to **. ****. But invoice #**** in the amount of 1200.62 we did go over with **, **** and she agreed to take responsibility. Furthermore, she states she had an extended warranty which was passed its term. Enclosed is a copy for your review,

**. **** states things were stolen out of her car when she got it back. Hard to take that seriously when I just graced her by eating an 1800.00 bill. My opinion is that whatever was missing probably happened at the impound yard in *********.

In conclusion, we gave **. **** a second chance, even moving several past due payments to the end of her note to give her a fresh start and she quickly feel behind in her payments again. As of today, she is over $400.00 behind along with an unpaid repair bill from 2011 that she has never paid.

**. **** would serve herself better by having open dialogue with us and being fiscally responsible, We are a second chance lender and I believe we have done much for her as a customer. I would agree that the life cycle of the current vehicle she is driving is nearing the end, but she needs to be in good standing in order to upgrade.

Consumer Response: [To assist us in bringing this matter to a close, you must give us a reason why you are rejecting the response. If no reason is received your complaint will be closed Administratively Resolved]

 Complaint: *******

I am rejecting this response because:  I gave 1,300.00 dollars on February 08,2013 to ****** ******* and when I questioned anything I always got different answers from different associates.. I have talked to ******,******,*** and ****** but no one ever is on the same page.. How am I  to know what is going on if no one sticks to the same story.. as far as the towing company I called the towing company and they said how did they steal anything when my truck was locked and they had no access to my truck.. I talked to the owner of the company and as far as the repair bills pertaining to  the 1200 and 1800 I had no idea of this conversation.. as far as me getting behind they are talking about my payments being paid a couple hours later then scheduled and I called to let them know what was going on
