resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I bought a car from Kennedi's on February 6, 2009. It was my first car and I loved it. At the time of purchase, I was told that I had to bring $400 back on March 6, 2009. Two hundred was for my sales tax and the other two was for the rest of my down payment.
My papers said that I had to bring the money back on the 20th of February 2009, but the young lady that did my paperwork kept telling me to bring the money in thirty days. Constantly she repeated bring it in thirty days. Now I had been over to the dealership to have my car worked multiple times after I had bought it.
I was over there on the 20th of February 2009. He asked me if I owed him anything, I told him no not until the 6th of March 2009. I returned to Kennedi's on March 5, 2009, to pick my mother up. She was getting her car worked on on this day. He said nothing about my payments being late than either. When I took my mother back to get her car, he would not give her back her car.
There were some words exchanged between the young lady, my mother, and me while we were there. During this time he tried to repossess my car, but I told him he was not taking my car because he had no grounds to take it on. Well he lat me drive my car home and than turned around and repossessed my at 3:47 am on March 6, 2009 when my actual payment was due.
I had to call the secretary of state's office and let them what happened. I also found out that it was on him to collect all monies (including down payments and sales taxes) at the time of purchase, he also supposed to register my car immediately after that. But I was told that he broke the law of Illinois by not doing so. So now I have to file a complaint report with the state of police, and it will be about a week before they look at it.
Now I am out of a car and my $500 down payment because he broke the law. In order to get my car he wants $650, part of the money was for sales tax and the rest was for repo fees. Which I am not responsible for, because he illegally repossessed my car. So whatever you do, don't buy a car from them.
