Max Lowry :

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.

Max Lowry :

In what way was it mis-sold to you

JACUSTOMER-rrc12ike- :

the question is, was i mis-sold

JACUSTOMER-rrc12ike- :

i went in there with my car, explained it was unaffordable due to losing my job.

JACUSTOMER-rrc12ike- :

the outstanding finance was 13,000

JACUSTOMER-rrc12ike- :

they lowered my monthly payments by 100 taking my nice new car away from me and handing me an older car, but with finance attached of 19,000. depsite me telling them i can't afford it

JACUSTOMER-rrc12ike- :

i now can not get credit to consolidate other debts and this has led to me missing payments, worsening my credit history.

JACUSTOMER-rrc12ike- :

do i have any legs to stand on in handing this car back

Max Lowry :

YOu rated bad service - why please? You've not given me chance to answer you?

Max Lowry :

I wanted to know why you believe they had mis-sold it to you? Is it simply because of the amount of credit overall? Did you not know this when you took out the loan?
