    My Husband and I went to Wheel City about a year and half ago. We got a 1998 Mini-van. We had to put down over 700 dollars and a weekly payment of 80 dollars a week. We are still paying for this van and it will equal out over 10, 000 dollars total after we get done! I will never go to wheel city again! We are so tempted to give the van back but don't want it to mess with our credit and honestly, we need the van. Even though it breaks down all the time. First time was 2 weeks after getting it! I mean c'mon, its a 1998 not a 2008!! AND if we are barely 2 payments behind they threaten to come take it and they call every single one of our 10 people contacts we were forced to give them! They are SO riping us off! I won't mind paying this amount if it was 2008 van not 1998! We already paid WAY over book value for it and it's costing us tons of money on repairs! What a rip off!!! Dont believe their crap!
