I know at least one person who had a bad experience with this company, World Class Auto Superstore.

In some cases, the consumer was not informed of the financing problem for weeks or even months after delivery, the motion said.

The consumer was then forced to agree to much less favorable terms, such as a higher interest rate, higher monthly payment, longer payment term or the purchase of a different vehicle of lesser value.

To force the consumer to agree to the new terms, the motion said, World Class Auto would refuse to return the consumer’s down payment; refused to return the consumer’s trade-in vehicle; and charged the consumer an “unconscionable” rental fee of $75 per day and 35 cents per mile for the vehicle the consumer had accepted under the original financing terms.
