Granted, there are mitigating factors, such as the harassment the dealer endured, but that is not something the buyer engaged in or encouraged in any way. The crux of the matter remains that the dealer is looking for an escape because of the amount of the financing, not because of the source.
I'm sure you are correct that there would have never been a problem had Ken gone for the "Buy It Now" option.
Is the dealership looking for an out? You have read the same pages as me and have come to a different conclusion. One thing is for sure, none of us reading all this really know the true story. I'm sure none of the parties involved could give a 100% accurate recall of everything that has happened as the mind twists things during a heated battle and recollection can be selective.
I do know if I had gone through what Ken has I would be fed up long ago and would have no desire to purchase this vehicle.
