Ohhh how I love that new care smell !

At a time when everyone I know is trying to cut cost my daughter (age 18) bought a new (2008) car and I couldn't be more proud of her. She knew what the car was worth from Kelly Blue Book and how much she was willing to pay when she went to the dealership. When the salesman said he couldn't do it...she didn't give in and was willing to walk away or at least go to a different dealership. Needless to say, that was the last thing he wanted her to do. She ended up getting the "leap day" rebate that had already ended and she asked about a coupon they had on their website and got that discount also. I don't think he expected a 18yr old to come in without a co-signer and seriously expect to leave in a new car.

What is Air Bag fraud?

Shady body shops replacing deployed or damaged air bags with paper towels, old shoes, even old aluminum cans. **each of these actually happened**

If you have doubts about your air bags existence, have it checked by a mechanic.

If you purchased a new car, you know if you've had to have the air bags replaced. If you purchased a used car, enter your vehicle identification number HERE for free air bag deployment history information.
