Re: Wonderful forum

None of this stuff is the real reason you don't go to car dealerships. It's because you'd never buy a new car.

Re: Wonderful forum

Carl G- Have you spoken with the company that financed the vehicle?
I know that with some mortgages for example- you have to specify that the extra amount will go to principle, or it will just be taken as your next months payment.
I would just give them a call. They may not have been any underhandedness at all.

I think Virginia is right. You have to write on the bill and check (apply to principal) or they will not do it. Best to call and ask for their directions.

Re: Wonderful forum

I have called the financial office of the lender and arranged for the payments to be made automatically, with the extra going straight to principle.

I guess the guy at the dealership just did not know what he was talking about??!
