I purchased a 2002 Ford Taurus 8 months ago and I was financed by Drive Financial and insured by Nationwide which was all set up by the dealer at the car lot where I purchased the car, Car Traders of Chipley Florida. The A/C never did work quite right, to make a long story short, the cars airconditioner compressor caught on fire and burned the compressor up and some belts. Due to the fact the car was still operable at that time we were instructed by the Marianna Police Dept. and the Marianna Fire Dept. (in which both were present) to remove the vehicle immediately for everyones safety, we drove the car home and it sat in the yard. The Insurance company would not do anything because it was not involved in an accident. So I called Drive and told them I was doing a voluntary repossession and explained everything to them and they were very ugly to me and said that they were not going to come and get the vehicle and I also called and faxed a letter of cancellation to my Insurance Co., and turned my tag to highway patrol, drivers licenses in Marianna. I also contacted the Ford Company and they told me I would have to pay for them to look at the vehicle. If there is something I can do or something yall could do I would appreciate it. I paid faithfully on my payments to them and the 115.00 amonth full coverage insurance came right out of my checking acct. monthly. Now I am without a vehicle, credit shot, you name. Thank you
Sincerely

    Drive - Harassment!

    I just had my car repoed, and they have taken my SS card, Driver licens and very important paper work. Im LOST.
    I knew I was behind on payments and done everything in my power to work with them on the account but the Harassing phone calls to my Home, Cell and work changed my mind. They were VERY VERY RUDE! I would recommend not to do business with this company to anyone who is thinking of doing so. What am I suppose to do now, I cant drive or cash my paycheck without my wallet (which was in the Car at the time of Repo). What am I to DO? I know I should not have left that in my car but the car was in my driveway and safe (supposably). DO they have to return my my items at all, or what do I need to do to get those items back? This Company should really be put out of Business and im not just saying that, to say it.
    Legal Action Needs to be taken against them for the Harassment and just the fact of higher Stree Levels and Higher Blood Pressure (JK) but seriously Action needs to be taken!

    Drive - REGARDING POSSIBLE FINANCING
    Michigan
    United States

    I HAVE BEEN RECENTLY TRYING TO OBTAIN FINANCING THRU DRIVE. FIRST I WAS TOLD BY THE DEALERSHIP THAT I WAS APPROVED AND THAT THEY ONLY NEEDED A THOUSAND DOLLARS DOWN. THE DEALERSHIP WAS WILLING TO TAKE MY 2005 KIA RIO THAT HAD THE TIMING CHAIN GO AND BECAUSE OF FAILURE ON KIA PART TO EXPLAIN THAT THEIR WARRANTIES MUST BE FOLLOWED AS PRINTED NOT AS RECOMMENDED MY WARRANTY WAS NULL AND VOID. FOR THE PAST 3 DAYS THE DEALERSHIP HAS CALLED AND TOLD ME THAT DRIVE WANTED MORE AND MORE INFORMATION ABOUT MY PERSONAL BUSINESS. THE DEALERSHIP HAS SUBMITTED MORE INFORMATION THEN MY OWN CHILDREN KNOW. THE LAST INFORMATION THEY WANTED WAS MY W2 STATEMENTS, VERIFICATION FROM WORK AS TO HOW MUCH I WOULD MAKE THIS MONTH, AND BECAUSE I HAVE A SELF PAY PHONE THEY WANT ANOTHER PHONE NUMBER. I AM IN THE PROCESS OF MOVING, AND LIVING WITH RELATIVES THERE IS NOTHING IN MY NAME UNTIL THE END OF THIS MONTH. I AM NOT KIDDING THE DEALERSHIIP CALLED ME A TOTAL OF 6 TIMES TODAY FOR SOMETHING ELSE THEY WANTED. I HAD ALREADY BEEN AT THE DEALERSHIP THIS MORNING. PLEASE HELP ME. THIS COMPANY SHOULD BE PUT OUT OF BUSINESS BECAUSE OF THEIR WAYS OF DOING BUSINESS. I HAVE SUBMITTED ENOUGH INFORMATION THAT THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO MAKE A DECISION. THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PEIOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO MAKE A FRESH START AFTER A BANKRUPTCY OR WHO HAVE HAD BAD CREDIT. THE CAR I WANT TO FINANCE IS NOT A BRAND NEW CAR. REFUSE TO BE A VICTIN OF THIS COMPANY. I WOULD RATHER WALK OR TAKE THE BUS AFTER READING ALL THE COMPLAINTS THAT HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED
