So yes I bought a new car, Biggest mistake and regret.
Went in on Dec 20th to test drive and Elantra GT hatch back as I have 2 children and a dog.
After a brief discussion with finance and sales I was informed that with poor-ish credit I could only get a Sonata sedan.
One 10 minute test drive in the Sonata and a hour or so later and I am wondering what I have done as I drive away from the dealership with the Sonata I could not afford.
Been trying desperately ever since (in person and by phone and email) to return the car and cancel the deal.
While in tears I was told (off the record) to just drive it till it is repossessed and take my cash back ad buy a beater car. I just traded my beater in for pennies to get a new car. Which they sold before I could get my stuff out of the car!
Frustrated at the finance directors unwillingness to take the car back after 1 week of trying to return it. Finally I just left the keys, the cash back check and the Sonata at the dealership.
I waited, outside, for 25 minutes while a cab came to drive me home. No one had offered to call me a cab as I had no way home as they already sold my trade in before I got to empty out my stuff.
The long of the short is I screwed up, I bought a car I did not want and could not afford it record time.
So I am very, very unhappy with my purchase and it will haunt me the rest of my life 1st new car purchase too.
