Long story short we went through hard times several months back. We were about a week late on our car payment and they shut it off (yes- it has a payment device) after the first day. We called when we had the money to pay it and they refused to turn it back on until we paid the "repo fees".
They never repo'd the car. What repo fees? Im not paying any damn repo fees. Ok so we decided not to pay on a car they wont let us use. So its been sitting there for 2 months, turned off. They know where it is. They had our address on file plus I know theres a GPS on the payment device that allows them to track it. Well we got back on our feet and moved out of state (we were staying with family) and called them a week before to let them know we would no longer be at that address and they needed to come get the car. We gave them the moving date an told them we would not be responsible for anything that happened to the car after that point, they said OK.
3 weeks later its still sitting there. Ive called several times trying to figure out WTF their deal is and they transfer me to a supervisors voicemail and no one ever calls back.
What do I do? We refuse to pay anything else on this car. Weve ASKED THEM to come get the car, told them we no longer will be paying for it. They told us we are not allowed to move the car (towing it to them- we obviously cannot drive it..) Yes it was our fault it got shut off to begin with but I refuse to pay fees for something they didnt even do. Now they are just letting it sit there and my family is getting sick of it being in their way (understandably).
Im going to give them one more call tomorrow but if I still have no luck what do I do? Im tempted to call a tow yard and have them tow it "At the owners expense" but im worried thatd come back on us too somehow.
