I bought a car from digs auto and i payed 4.000 down on a 5.000 and then noticed that there web site says if you put half down there is no intrest for the rest of the payments. the dealer charged me 21% intrest and did not even run my credit since it was a in house loan. I contacted them after 3 days of having the car and told them the check engine light kept coming on. they said to bring it in and they will check it out. so i did. they said it was a sensor and it was fixed. Then 3 months later there was a knocking in the engine i brought it to my mechanic he said to bring it back to them the engine was ready to blow up. so i told the owner of the shop what i was told and he said well get it fixed. i got estimates and it would cost about 4000. for a used engine. I am a single mother of 2 kids i could not afford that it took me a year to save my down payment. so i told the owner of the shop that i could not drive the car to make the next payment and if the engine blows i cant make no more payments becouse i could not make it to work. i called him daily and he was sick and on sunday they are closed that sunday night he came and repod my car. what can i do. since then i lost my apartment my job and i can not get my kids to or from school. everything has gone down hill please some one help me
