It is legit, but it is only on about 2 vehicles that could be considered antiques!

I thought your first like four to six payments are $88 and then it goes to your normal payment.

Don't even get me started on dealerships.....those bloodsuckers should be tarred and feathered. You've got to go in there with leverage and know what you're doing and even then they're gonna try and stick it to you.

I agree to a certian point but they have to make money or they'd be out of business. Or they get a bail out....

Yeah, we all have to make money, I'm talking about the old bait and switch crap. That's a total lie and I don't endorse it.....happens all the time.

Record the commercials and then pause it when they flash up the fine print. That will tell you everything you need to know
