    I have quite excellent relationships with several Subaru dealers. One I buy parts from set me up with a shop account and sells to me at a steep discount. The one closer to home that I buy cars from is pretty no nonsense when it comes to sales. Their finance guy is a fucknugget though. I bring...

    Welp. Apparently I have an open Chase account for the lease. That's a good sign. Of course, the way I found out about it was that it magically appeared on my existing Chase login. With a due date that's EXACTLY what I said it was going to be, not what the dealer invented last week. Gonna send...

    Yeah, I'm lining up the financial decks for that possibility because, practically speaking, we are completely and irrevocably committed. I've also primed the legal cannon, and these guys have written down a lot of shit that they really should not have. If that's what's going on, they didn't...

    Did you think I was finally done with this bloody lease transaction? HELL NO. We had a literal week of radio silence. Nothing. And now we're back to "We need to see driver's licenses and insurance". Why? FUCK KNOWS. Why the radio silence? Well, apparently the Fedex'd documents got delivered...

    That awkward time when you get finance rejection letters in the mail for the car you already have possession of and sold it's predecessor, and nobody at the bank or dealership is particularly interested in returning your calls. I swear to fuck if this is anything other than the bank getting...

    I would absolutely love to know what the hell kind of math Progressive is using for this Ascent. The insurance rate is higher than the 60mo finance payment for buying the damned thing. By my reckoning, that's only justified if they're figuring on a 100% chance of total loss in 5 years or 50%...

    Well, it's all signed. Except for some stuff they don't think they can take power of attorney on (LIKE THE DMV FORMS headdesk). But she has keys and license plates. Doing the handoff ceremony now. They figured out the VIN screwup. They got two identically configured cars on the same truck with...

    Now we're getting somewhere. We're pushing for delivery tomorrow. At which time we'll never speak to this damned dealership ever again. Warranty and recall work at another dealer, maintenance at... Well, I'm going to call a Subaru speed shop in the neighborhood tomorrow and see if they'll do...

    Oh my God this dealership. They sent me a contact with fixed financials. The VIN also changed. So all the other forms are now wrong. Edit: Okay. Sorted out a solution. Instead of dumping yet more time into this, expiring the June lease deals and having to start over with July's rates, I got...

    I've also lately seen a FANTASTICALLY large number of cars with illegal red/blue flashers using them to clear holes in traffic. At least one a week. It seems to be A Thing™ in Pennsyltucky now.

    Sigh. They're sending another contract. NOT LIKE WE'RE ON A DAMNED TIMER HERE, GUYS.

    Probably not. The contract does give the bank 15 days to change their mind and demand immediate return of the car. Which wouldn't stand in any sane court but in arbitration? Ha!

    Shoulda, yeah. But on the other hand I ain't got the time to start off a financial arrangement in forced arbitration.
