My husband and I leased a vehicle (I know dumb move) when the lease was up we weren't in the position to be able to buy the vehicle. The lease was up on 8/9/2001. We had been in contact with the lease company, GE Capital, and told them of our intentions to turn in the vehicle, they told us we needed it inspected, they would have the inspection company call and make an appointment. 2 weeks later we were able to get in touch with the inspection company. They weren't able to inspect the vehicle for 3 1/2 weeks. After the inspection was done, it took a week just to get the report from GE Cap. by now it is already the middle of Sept. I had to fax receipts of repairs that had been made that they were trying to charge us for. They then informed me the transport company woudl be calling to set up a time to come pick up the vehicle. By now it is well into the beginning of Oct. I played phone tag with the transport company for about 2 1/2 weeks. The last message I left for them took 2 weeks to be answered. I had, in the meantime, called GE Capital and spoke with one of the reps, told him the situation of playing phone tag with the transport company, and asked if I was going to be charged for the time that the vehicle had been sitting in my driveway, he replied "No you're not responsible for any lease payments after the lease matured" (wish I had that in writing) Anyway the vehicle wasn't picked up until 11/21/2001 and they are trying to charge up until that date. Is this legal??? Don't know alot about issues like this..........do know NEVER LEASE A VEHICLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm getting completely screwed here.
Sorry for the long post........I'm new at this and wasn't sure how much detail was needed.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
