They always used to say, never buy a car from or sell one to, someone you know!  ;D

We “sold” our other car to a cousin and we haven’t gotten full payment since December haha. They only gave us half. I don’t understand why they think that’s ok but they probably don’t feel the urgency because I’m still around so the move doesn’t seem real. My husband keeps asking me to follow up, but in my culture (Filipino) it’s a very sensitive topic and I don’t know how to approach them. Hmmm.

selling car fast
« Reply #16 on: May 01, 2018, 07:25:47 PM »
When my father retired from the military and my family moved home from overseas, we sold our car to a local airman.  He paid half up front and was to make payments on the remainder... we never saw it.  Never ever do casual credit!

Oh. This is what we arranged with my cousin. Half up front and supposedly the other half “before I left for the UK” which at that time we thought was on January.

"As you are aware we have incurred a large cost for my visa for the UK.  This has placed us under financial strain.  Can you let me know what date to expect the balance for the car?"

Want me to call them?   ;)

I'm in the same boat, I may have to take a friend to small claims court when I'm back. But I'm basically going to ask one more time, if they don't pay, then I'll figure out how the claim would work. I can blame Trump/Congress because the new tax law delayed refunds for a ton of people and really screwed up budgets for lower income folks. It took > 3 months for one friend when it's usually 1 month max. (go figure, it took less than a week for mine)

Haha! I did try to hint this to them when they asked me how i was. I said we’re tight on cash since i resigned last Dec and now relying only on husband’s income. They’re also well aware of the cost of the 2nd application because I complained a lot about it during our family Sunday lunches. I think it’s because they assume I don’t really have any major expenses since I’m living with our grandparents (rent free, only have to pay for our food......) *sigh*

In Catholic school i remember one catechism teacher tell us that we should only lend money we are willing to part with because there is a possibility it will never come back. It’s so unfair but also, i wouldn’t want to taint our relationship because of a debt owed.

We actually have a written contract, so if we wanted to go to the hassle of figuring out how to go to small claims court via the USA.... At least she can take it off her taxes (I think) as a loss.

As well as "Never Co-sign for a car loan".  Worth her weight in gold.

I believe that kbb.com has a section where dealers will make an offer on your vehicle.  don't remember the particulars, but when I checked it out I kept on getting calls and emails from car dealers looking to purchase my vehicle.
