I bought a 2004 Mercury Sable from InstaCredit in March 2008. AFTER paperwork for the purchase was complete, I was informed of an anti-theft device that was installed on my vehicle. Being a woman, I thought that was great. The company also informed me that if a payment was more than FOUR days past due this device would render my car inoperable. I was shocked! However, since I planned to pay my car note, I thought this would not be a problem. My payments are due every other Friday, but last week I was late. I made the payment on a Monday. By Tuesday morning, my vehicle was inoperable. I had sent funds to them via Moneygram, but my vehicle was still inoperable. I called and had to enter in a 4 digit code on this device in order for my vehicle to start. Just thought all should know BEFORE purchasing a vehicle with them. Cars can't be repossessed in four days. Should companies be able to make them inoperable in four days?
