J.D. Byrider

The Kentucky attorney general filed a lawsuit against the car dealer for allegedly selling substandard cars and trucks at inflated prices. The case was filed on behalf of 14,400 people who purchased vehicles at the Louisville dealer from January 1, 2000 through December 31, 2004. J.D. Byrider of Louisville has agreed to pay a $7.1 million settlement that will award $500 to each purchaser. Marc Maguire owns the franchise with his father James Maguire. The dealer's parent company, J.D. Byrider Systems Inc. of Carmel, Indiana will contribute an additional $300,000 to the settlement. (Jan-31-06) [INDIANAPOLIS STAR]

Last year, my boyfriend and I were desperate for a vehicle. JD Byrider saw us coming a mile away. We purchased a 2005 Chevy Malibu with nearly 200,000 miles on it. We are paying $185 every 2 weeks. If we wanted to pay it off now, we would have to pay over $11,000. Kelly Blue Book values our car at about $260-$2600 depending on its condition. What we still owe is almost what a 2017 Chevy Malibu goes for. We are stuck in this. I should have checked all this before buying from them. We have 4 more years to go @ $370 a month. Ridiculous.

I got A 2005 Ford Escape in September 2016, they let me keep it long enough to take $1100 for down payment. Then before December payment they repossessed it, didn't even call before coming to get it.
