February 21st 2019 I got repossessed for none payment. March 1st balance was paid in full. March 4th I was instructed to come pick up my vehicle. On that day I found my car wouldnt start. Car was towed to carhop partner shop, diagnosed blown engine (I drove my car days before repossession, car ran fine) and a leaky exhaust (again another problem that didn't exist before repossession). I didn't get my vehicle back for 3 weeks because carhop wouldn't send the part. While my car was in the shop I was still making payments. March 21st or 24th I was told I could pick up my vehicle because the work had been complete. When I get my car back 2 new issues arrise. Took vehicle to get brakes done costing $520. I made my payment still. Now I cannot make my payment because I had to pay for breaks but made a payment plan and adhered to this arrangement. At this point im caught up. Today carhop has increased my my total owing from 4700 to 6500. They also dinged my credit almost 300 points in the past month. This is seriously effecting my lively hood with children and I cannot find shelter now because of this. Please tell me what I can do to get out of this contract. Please.
You'd have to prove that it was there fault and not yours. Based on the facts you gave, mainly, the fact you couldn't make your car payment.. good luck with that.
