No, as eventually in today's world may be years away. Or in the case of this thread; 9 months.

You're confusing stupid people and those with cognitive disabilities. They are not the same. When you eventually figure out what I'm talking about then we can discuss it.

There's a very fine line between the two.

I went to a new dealership since I moved many states away from my home to have required maintenance on my '14 Hyundai and walked out with a new car. This is the 4th time I have done that. I am always upgrading. To me this lady did not upgrade, she went downhill.

Paperwork? Tons of paperwork AND this dealership doesn't give you hard copies of it! You sign a space on the desk which is a monitor to a computer! You then get a print out of what you just signed. Not until you sign do you get the hard copy. I am supposing if you wanted to read a hard copy they would print it out but I am not sure about that. Plus on the desk thingy the print is miniscule. I did know what I was doing though and have no buyer's remorse. I will be a much harder sell in the future since I am very pleased with the car. I am 64 btw.

I admit I haven't read the article yet, I was more interested in seeing what posters were saying! Why was she not paying the bill? Seems silly to me. You bought it, you pay for it.

The line is simple. One can't understand; the other won't, or is too lazy to understand.

I did read the article just now and agree that that dealership pulled a fast one on the woman. They sound like lying pos.

Ford Fusion on the south side of Chicago doesn't impress much, does it?

It doesn't make them incompetent to drive, though.
They at least knew they were buying a car and not 'borrowing one'.

You pulled that original comment out of your arse. Zero evidence to support that hypothesis; for all you know the posters you called out ARE black. The race card is getting worn out and ineffective thanks to folks like yourself. Have fun dreaming up your next non sequitur argument.
