Check engine light ison, its leaking gas and the starter is going out. Have any of you ever done this? we cant afford to make payments and fix it too.

  • my moms friend had some mexican's 'steal' it and drive it to mexico at 9pm so they had time. she called the police to report it stolen at 8am so that way it was gone and her excuse for not knowing is that she as asleep. that way insurance takes over the payments

  • OP. yes but im going to sue my insurance company for injury (they have been ripping me off) that way we can pay cash and have transportation..............we are thinking about parking infront of a concrete barrier thing at walmart and instead of hitting the breaks hitting the gas on accident. we will take the hike in insurance.

  • dont people just set it on fire or drive it over a cliff? once again, using the stolen car scenario but making sure the vehicle is totaled and irreparable! and most importantly, not ur fault!

  • yes but if we set it on fire we cant sue the insurance company for injury. we need the money to get another car. we dont care if it is our fault we will take the hike in insurance. It cant be more than our car payments and what we owe., AND OH. it will only take 3k in damage to total it.

  • i would consult with a lawyer, chances are that they can get it fixed or get you money to fix it, have them review your warantee.


    Many times there is a loop hole, if you need a lawyer, contact me. its what i do, we are a group so we get services at a group rate(as low as $26 a month).

    Unlimited counsel and more, way worth more than the cost of your repairs http://www.plans4me.info


    keep your dates. youll need them.

  • I agree with above poster, I have a friend that was in a accident, that totaled her car, thankfully she is fine. She is now working the system and going to a chiropractor "which she does not need" and suing the ins company. All this is why our insurance rates keep going up. There are other ways, fix the car or contact a attorney to see what your options are.

  • THANK YOU, :49 AND :00!!! What the heck is this question all about?? What in the WORLD makes you think that this is a viable and mature course of action to take? How about you get it fixed the legal way and not try to LIE and STEAL your way into getting your own belongings taken care of by someone else? Would you con someone else into fixing your grill or your plumbing? No. You'd fix it like an adult. Grow up.

  • I think you ppl dont get it. WE DONT HAVE THE THOUSANDS TO FIX IT!! A CAR WITH 60K MILES SHOULDNT BE IN THIS MUCH PROBLEMS........WE HAVE NO FAMILY HERE THAT CAR IS OUR ONLY MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION.

  • Then your car won't be fixed and you'll go into default. That's all there is to it. This happens sometimes. That's still not a reason to break the law.

  • You should be able to get it fixed and pay the payments late. Though that's not a perfect solution, it's a much better one than breaking the law.
