We bought our Chevy Cavalier used in January of 2001. It has been a great car, but... The newspaper job has taken it's toll. I expected a call everyday at 4:00 am saying he had broken down somewhere. Kirk needed a new car. After an seemingly endless search, we found the car he wanted. A Scion XD.
We thought this would be a great move for us. Little did we know it was going to be a huge hassle and ruin our credit!
We went to Brent Brown in Provo and picked out the car. They didn't have any in stock so we waited the week that it would take to get it here. We pick it up the day before Kirk leaves for the Philippines. I thought this would be great. I would be the one to get to have the fun car for 3 weeks! I start getting calls from the dealership saying they need Kirk to come in and sign things that they forgot about. Hello! He is on the other side of the world! So instead of waiting they start calling Kirk's mom! He gets home, we go sign the things they needed. They call and say they need a copy of Kirk's paycheck. Ok. He faxes it to them. They don't call and tell us they don't receive it for another month. They call (at 4:30)and tell us they need it by 5:00. Oh did I mention this is Saturday and we are no where near a computer, fax machine or Provo? So, they call Kirk's mom again. Because of course she will have a copy of it (sense the sarcasm?) Kirk emails it to them on Sunday. They call a week later and say they would like to have us bring the payment to the dealership to expedite the loan processing (so far it has been about 3 months)we rush down there with the payment, they tell us they had made the previous payments on our behalf because of all the mix ups. We get a call last night from the bank saying no payments have been on the car yet. It will be repoed it 2 days. Are you kidding me?!?!?! Oh, and when should we receive the license plates? Our temporary plate expired Oct. 3!
Moral of the story? Never buy a car at Brent Brown in Provo.
