Public Roundtables: Protecting Consumers in the Sale and Leasing of Motor Vehicles, Project No. P104811

I purchased a used truck from West Herr in Amherst and am upside down over 3000 dollars. I did not use my logic because I needed to get out of the car I traded in and get into a truck. At first they said they could keep my payments at 330 a month. I was payin 280 for the 2010 brand new yaris. I purchased a 2004 chevy colorado with 73,000 miles on it. I know dumb and now im stuck with a payment of 350 a month. Older vehicle more payments. It is a head ache since the gas pedal sticks when I try to pass a vehicle, the back window leaks water, the electric is shorting out, the power window arm that holds the window is all bent, I had to replace the radiator all ready. I have to fix the heater because it only works on high. I read that these problems are all typical for this truck. I have to get ab brakes fixed to becasue it keeps going into default. I dont know how much they bought the my new yaris for but I know it wasnt much. When I did a bluebook value on this truck it was 4,000 less than the asking price. I feel dumb and I truly believe this truck is not going to make it to the end of my payment plan which is another four years. Shoot me now. I have thought about letting it go into repo. I just may not sure yet. With the way the economy is nowadays who cares.
