Take Me to Toyotathon: Vehicle Incentives Slowly Returning
We’re coming out of a few lean years in the auto industry. Automakers, struggling to keep pace with demand due to supply chain issues and a global pandemic, slashed incentives and even increased prices in some cases. Things are starting to calm down, at least a little, and the deals are slowly returning.
QOTD: What Was The Worst Beating You Ever Took?
Yesterday I talked about the worst kind of subprime lenders and how they misused the courts to collect their profits. There was a broad spectrum of reader response, including a few people who felt compelled to discuss the fact that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote and therefore won the presidency. (To which I can only respond: that’s like awarding the Super Bowl win to the team with the most rushing yards.)
Here’s what we didn’t discuss: our own experiences with subprime loans and/or bad car deals. I suspect that there are some members of the B&B who have never so much as walked by a subprime lender; I also suspect that there are plenty of readers who are currently in a subprime situation right now but don’t want to admit it.
So for today, let’s consider two topics: a) What’s the worst car deal you ever made? and b) did you ever use a subprime source? I’ll start, of course.
