McKnight said a saleswoman pressured her to "try out" the 2008 Hyundai Azera with promises that she could return it the next day. A sales manager at Holmes Hyundai secretly checked her credit while she waited for service on her car, McKnight said. The sales team also allegedly suggested that she could afford the newer car if she stopped paying on her Medicare supplemental insurance.
McKnight said she owed $7,600 on her 2006 Hyundai, with 21,000 miles. Her $329 monthly car payments are set to increase to more than $400 per month with the new car, and will continue until she pays off the $26,000 she now owes.

I fall in between the two, so will take my car for "second opinions" and (now) hit the Internet and find a car club for my car and ask questions there.
Sure, the guy who sold her the new car got the sale, but what damage has been done to their reputation?
Have a nice day...
Considering how the selfish generation treated my generation 20 years ago I have no sympathy at how those in the Selfish generation are being victimized now that they are beyond Middle Age and are Elderly.
I saw how this generation treated their parents 20 years ago too.
Remember, this is the generation that invented the idea of locking their elders in a home and not visiting.
When ever I hear an old person complain about being targeted i always wonder what what in the wide world of selfish they were doing 30 years ago when the elderly were being targeted.
Oh that's right, this generation was voting for Reagan and all his cuts to protection for the elderly, children, homeless, mentally ill, and others.
You reap what you sow.
