    I've never dealt with them but I've heard of some horror stories. People were claiming their cars are really bad quality and break down, leaving the purchaser with no car and locked into a contract to pay exorbitant repayments on it.

    My sister got one 5 years ago. You pay heaps more then what it's worth but she got a great car. Only a few little things like clutch cable and something else. Was great for her and the car is still chugging along!

    Steer very clear.

    They limit you to purchasing vehicles only directly from them at highly inflated prices.

    We went through them a few years ago. Never again. I wouldn't go near them again with a 50 foot barge pole.

    You pay triple what the car is worth, we had a few dramas with the car. Then they repossessed the car with a few months to go when we were making the payments. They're shady.

    the prices are significantly inflated.

    try an ordinary bank for finance and then you can buy a car from anywhere.

    I would try the bank for a personal. I have only heard horror stories like they sell lemons and you end up paying 3 times what the car is worth.

    My neighbors got a car through them - 3 months later they need a new engine. I would stay well clear of them
