  • How to remove a GPS disabler from a vehicle.

    Dear a$$hole, Let me tell you something here. I was completely taken advantage of a leasing company. Now, I accept responsibility for my foolishness and acting out of desperation, yes. However, there is zero excuse for how these prix opperate either. Last May, my 2005 Santa Fe started having some issues. I got pretty worried, as I am a single parent with 2 children. I also live in the country, meaning that I have no alternative for transportation. Having no vehicle is simply not an option for me. So no, I am not just some entitled princess here. My situation is very legit. Anyways, prior to meeting these devils, I had been working diligently to improve my credit score. And by the time that the Santa Fe was on the way out, I had established a 2 year record of perfect payments on all lo...see more »Dear a$$hole, Let me tell you something here.

My situation is very legit. Anyways, prior to meeting these devils, I had been working diligently to improve my credit score. And by the time that the Santa Fe was on the way out, I had established a 2 year record of perfect payments on all loans and bills. I was ready to walk into a dealership like a rock star lol. Now, I knew that a brand new vehicle was not in the budget, but I figured used would be financially feasible. I contacted many dealerships...and unfortunately this was one of them. I was told that they could get me into an almost new vehicle in great shape, great warranty, low km. A much safer option with having the kids and all. My fears of a breakdown with the kids in the winter time was a very real one. I didn't love the idea of a lease, but, he got me on those fears. Despite my good history, they gave me a 22% interest rate, because of my status as a student. Nice. I swallowed it. I had to pay $2500 plus tax down, and give a $1000 refundable deposit, returnable in 1 year. Ok. Did that. My entire savings left my account that day. But, hey...I would have a safe vehicle right? Lol. Fast forward to June 30. Exactly 1 month from the vehicle delivery date. Alternator goes. Yup. 30 effin days later. The MOST that they would offer, was covering half of the $800 repair bill. See ya later, another $400. Now, 4 months later, I have excess km. I have begged them to give me 6 months to get them down to normal useage. Summer we did a lot of travel, so the excess is not typical. I pay $480 a month for a 2011 van. Yup. So awesome and reliable afterall. They don't want to give me the time to get the km back on track. Nope. They now want $750 to pay for them. I asked if I will be refunded when it turns out that I am under the yearly km allowance. Nope. They just re-strucure the financing. I explained that I am totally stretched thin financially. I don't have the $750. I need time. Welp. I can't pay $750? I can eff myself, and they will simply take my vehicle. Bye bye deposit, down payment, etc. Oh, and see you later credit score. This lease was by far my biggest mistake in my life. And you want to defend these crooks?? I have already made peace with my poor decision. I am trying to swallow the loss. These goofs prey on the most vulnerable people, and they use your fears against you to get you to sign. And they are laughing because hey! They keep all of my money, and get a van back in better condition than it left the lot, and then they lease it again. Meanwhile, I now have no options. I am scared out of my wits because what can I do? Now, nobody will finance me as my credit will be totalled and I have nothing to put down. Do I sound like some bum who simply decides not to honor my contracts? Do I sound like someone who can't save money? Eff you how about? I have nobody to help me, and I am certainly not Kanye West, were people are donating to a gofundme because I abused 53 million dollars lmao. Your comment is so disgusting. Defending predators like this, as if they somehow are the victims. Shame on you. Ya jerk. The only thing that I can take away from this, is a painfully expensive lesson that I will likely not recover from for a very very long time. Luckily, I am not a cryer, but a doer. I will fight to improve this situation of course. Perhaps you should think before you speak bro. What happened to me here is atrocious. Yes, I own my role. Of course. But the onus is on the rich who harm those who are of lesser means. F*&# THEM. And the same goes for people like you. I hope that karma nails you to the wall.
