If I dont accept the loan, there's no way for me to pay for the car. The dealer has a no buyer's remorse policy as well.

  • Have you ever bought a car that doubled in value?

    I bought a used truck with 60k miles for $4k. Then 3 years later it was rear ended and totaled. The insurance adjuster valued the truck at $8,500!!!!! So is this unusual or is it because I just bought it really cheap (bought it from a title loan place)?

  • Can a dealership cancel buying out my leased car deal? If so, would there be any consequences for them?

    Best answer: Read any contracts/papers you signed. Read it word for word. If you don't understand it, read it again, and if you give up, then hire an attorney to read it and render an opinion.

    Best answer: Read any contracts/papers you signed. Read it word for word. If you don't understand it, read it again, and if you give up, then hire an attorney to read it and render an opinion.
    What state are you in?
    Do you have a sales contract that includes terms for paying off the lease?
    Note they have may have reversal clauses for material errors. And if you told them the wrong number, and they relied on that number, then they may be able to make the case the contract is void due to your material error.
    Or contracts can be voided if there was a clear mistake (no idea if this meets those conditions) and all parties can be "made whole" and asked to start a new contract phase or not, their options.
    Pardon the direct comment, but you asked the question, all three parties here made rookie mistakes.
    Here is what should have happened.
    1. Dealer A. We did not underwrite you loan. Please call the lessor (ie company that wrote and owns the lease) and ask them for a payoff amount.
    2. You. Call lender and get written payoff letter with a "good through" date.
    3. Dealer B. We can no rely on a number given to you by the dealer who is not even the lender. Please contact the lender and have the fax a payoff letter directly to our F&I manager.
    The payoff letter is binding to the lender. If they say you owe X and you pay X, they have to accept that amount and release the title.
    If in fact you legally owe nothing and dealer B is clearly obligated to pay off the lease, regardless of the price, and if they wrote a contract without a written payoff letter in hand, I think a court might say they have to pay off the lease. Again who knows. But your problem is if they decide to breach the contract and not make payments to the lease, then you would have to sue them. And of course pay and attorney and make the lease payments for say 1-3 years while this goes to court or settles.
    Off the cuff based on the mess this could be, I suggest you offer to settle, I would try to offer nothing at first, but then maybe go back if they try to undo the deal and offer 1/3 then up to 1/2. I am guessing they would take that deal.

  • Someone told me it's better to buy a used car from a state where it doesn't snow (because of the salt used to melt the snow).?

    Best answer: Yes but not as much as you'd think. Modern cars use galvanised (zinc coated) steel for the major panels, which is very resistant to corrosion, but the salt does chew through eventually, so newer is better if buying a car from a salty state.

    I have a Honda Civic that gets incredible 50mpg on the freeway which I love since it doesn't need much gas and gets 600 miles to the tank. But I hate that the interior is cramped especially since I travel often and end up sleeping in my car. The rear seat folds down but there's still not enough room to sleep comfortably. Forget about 2 people sleeping in it. So I am thinking about trading it in for an SUV with plenty of room that gets 20mpg. So do you think I should do it or keep the 50mpg car?

    Long story short I went to trade in my car (at a well known dealership [not crappy buy here pay here]) I was having my mom co sign but she was not with me during signing they told me no problem she can come whenever its convenient for her to sign. Well had the car for 5 days and it was having problems (was a used 2017) so I decided to take the car back since the deal was technically "not final" since my co signer had not signed they let me take my car back and took the new one back. Well then they give me a bill for $387 saying I have to pay this. It was from where they gave me car an inspection, oil change, etc as it was a new trade in the recieved and to see if it was ready to sell. I said can you tell me where I signed that I HAD TO PAY THIS? He says well no but someone has to pay it because we thought this was a done deal and we were ready to sell your old car so we put it thru this inspection etc this doesnt happen usually so someone has to pay it. I basically told them to give me some time and I would get back with them. Everyone says that its BS and they cant make me pay as they are the ones who jumped the gun to the inspection on my car. I just dont want them trying to take me to small claims court trying to get this money...Thoughts??

    I got a call from the car dealership that I got my car from. They said that they were giving me a call from the manager of the dealership, that he wanted to see about putting me in a newer car since ive had mine for over a year. The lady said that I have gotten into a better financial place and that they wanted to help me get into a car that has a lower payment or on that is the same payment. I told her what I wanted for a payment and she said that they could definitely get me into a car with that payment. 1st I dont know why she said that Im in a better financial place im going in debt with this car and for the last 7 months ive had to call the bank to make payment arrangements so that it dosent show up as a late payment. 2nd she was asking about my car and damages and make sure that there wasnt any body damange to my car and see if i had to replace the tiers. 3rd they should know that I cant trade in my car because I went to the dealership about 2 months ago to see about lowering my payment and they said that they couldn t help me because my car wasnt worth what I owe and they didn t have a car that would cover my cost. 4th she really wanted me to come in today but I wasnt able to and wanted to make sure that I could come in some time during the week I told her thursday and she said ok and kept making sure that I was going to come in to have the car looked at. something to me dosent seem right especially since they couldnt help me a few months ago.

    Best answer: I assisted a good friend with an automotive search strikingly similar to your wants and desires. He wanted to find a new small to mid-sized SUV or crossover.

    We researched and test drove the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, Hyundai Tucson, and Subaru Crosstrek, all 2018 year models.

    Unfortunately, and surprisingly, the Rogue was the least or our favorites. The CR-V and RAV4 were nice but still felt a bit cheap and had poor interior design layouts.

    Even more surprisingly the Hyundai Tucson was extremely impressive. However, for overall quality and workmanship, features, equipment, and design the Crosstrek was the winner hands down. He has had the Subaru for a couple of months now and could not be more pleased. Highly recommended.

    Hello, I'm a high school student going into my senior year. So I've been saving up for a car but don't have a clue on what type of car I should buy. I don't really need a fancy car or sports car. Just a car that would get me to school, work, and after school activities. I'm looking for a price range around $600-$1,000. I'm also looking into buying the car before my senior year. I'm really into jeeps, Hondas and toyatas. But would really appreciate any other kind of cheap car. Also the car should be somewhere at least within 50 miles in Eastern Montana and not out of state. If you could direct me to a useful site where I can search for cars that would be very much appreciated.. Thanks so much and have a nice day/evening.
