Q: A few hours ago bought a 2006 Toyota Sienna and…they financed me thru C$^& A%&%$. The car originally priced at $8,400 became a $9,999 car before any additional fees or extended warranties they told me the bank insisted the investment be with it…and I pay a 22.999% finance rate leaving me with an extensive gap. My payments are at $357.67 which they say are too maxed out for their GAP ins coverage to be added. Of course it is highly suggested I get GAP coverage. My insurance nor any other insurance will cover me for GAP. What to do? Have only had my car few hours.
A: Honestly, if you already have a reliable car, I would walk away from this deal. Them hiking up the price of the car sounds extremely shady and the interest rate is atrocious. Fix your credit and get a better deal later.
As far as the GAP insurance, I am not surprised that your insurance company will not offer it. It is only usually offered on new vehicles. And if your finance company will not offer it, not much you can do there.
