That $500 fee he charges you unless you pay it off in 90 days is your finance charge, sherlock.

My daughter bought a car from honest ziggy's about 3 weeks ago. paid her entire tax return down on a car. She had the car 2 weeks, still owed a small deposit $200.00. why he let the car go when the deposit was not paid in full I don't know. Daughter had unexpected surgery and would be off work for a few days. Daughter asked HONEST ziggy for a few more days to pay deposit he would have it by Friday. She never missed a car payment. he repossessed the car by Tuesday of same week. She had the car for about 3 weeks, paid over $1500.00 to HONEST ziggy for a car she used no more than 3 weeks, he has her money and the car and will sell it to another unfortunate person who is forced to deal with this predator. Consumers be aware.
When the customer purchases the vehicle, we tell them that we have a seven day grace period. On the 8th day the vehicle will be repossessed. However we give the customer a one time courtesy call to assure them that we are on the same page.

Well first of all it's a buy here pay here lot so what do you expect. Secondly they are bound by certain Florida law and most assuredly if you people that insist on buying cars from shysters would report them to your state attorneyÂ’s office you might get some results. Honest ziggy indeed. Who in their right mind would buy a car from a man names honest ziggy?
Over 2500 people in their right mind.

I bought a truck from this place. The owner, Greg, assured me that he just had the transmission rebuilt and the a/c compressor was new. A month later the a/c compressor went out. I had it checked out, it was the original. A month later, the transmission went out. I called Greg to ask him what the deal was, he told me to make sure I keep making my payments on time. So I had it hauled over to Trannys Unlimited (whom I highly recommend) and they told me that the transmission was filled with some gummy substance to keep it from slipping temporarily, and that all the parts of the transmission were original. These guys are selling junk and all I can say is BUYER BEWARE.
That is not true. We don't lie to people. We have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and we are not even a member.

Every car is sold as is. We offer the customer the option of taking the car to a mechanic to have it inspected before they buy it. We don't do exchanges. I think this person is confused.

Never again will I buy from Honest Ziggys they are foul. I made a payment one day late and they repossessed my car. They even admitted it says nothing in the contract about repossessing after one late payment. Now I have to pay the full balance. I hate this place! I will be reporting them.
If you don't adhere to the contract your car will be repossessed.

PLEASE report them. PLEASE post ads on Craigslist, Backpage, and any other sites you can think of. People need to know what they are doing to their local community. I have been. I'll picket over there if anyone wants to join in. you don't sh#t on your neighbors. These guys need to be run out of business for what they are doing to hard working people in this economy. HONEST ZIGGYS IS PICKING UP JUNK CARS AT THE MLK AUCTION AND RIGGING THEM TO GET BY LONG ENOUGH TO GET OFF THE LOT.
Yes we buy cars at auctions. And we repair them. We offer the customer the chance to take the car to a mechanic to have it inspected before the buy it.

There's a BHPH lot on every corner. Steer clear of these low lifes. Not doing anything good for the people of our community and out community needs to run them out of town. Google Honest Ziggys Complaints.

I recently bought a car from honest ziggys in north ft myers. My car runs great. We have had no problem at all. I even signed a form that says car comes as is and my ac did not work and he fixed it for free. I will recomend honest ziggys to all of my friends. Great prices and beautiful cars.

First, when you finance a car (make car payments) you make them once a month. not every week. Second, a deposit is money put down on a vehicle as a "good faith" payment before financing. No Auto Dealer would accept payments for this. You don't make payments on a deposit. Third, a repossession order comes from a financial institution and takes way more than a couple days to execute. Fourth, IF the car was repossessed, she has an opportunity to pay all back payments and money owed on that title, and by law, is legally responsible for the money still owed until the financial institution closes the account. Fifth, IF your daughter did in fact have surgery, then her days off would be covered by the FMLA Act which would not impact her pay. Sixth, no one is "forced to deal with this predator." No one dragged you or your daughter there and forced you to enter contracts and hand over money under duress.
NOT TRUE HE CAME AND PICKED MY CAR FOR BIENG 2 DAYS LATE AND GAVE ME 10 DAYS TO PAY THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF THE CAR 3,000 SUM DOLLARS GOOD THING I HAD FRIENDS TO HELP AND I WAS ABLE TO GET MY CAR BACK

Johnny 5 you think you onow it all but you dont! If you are going to present something as "fact" then it should actually be a fact...
1
"First, when you finance a car (make car payments) you make them once a month. not every week"
Not necessarily.Many bad credit auto financers make pmts due every payday...could be two weeks or one...but In fact op never said anything about weekly pmts...she said she had never been late on a car pmt...meaning ANY car pmt previously.
2. "Second, a deposit is money put down on a vehicle as a "good faith" payment before financing"
Wrong again! There are situations where the dealer thought could get financing with x dollars down but the. finance co that ended up accepting the loan would only do it if buyer put down a couple hundred more. I have literally walked away and had that happen...they said just bring it in...i did in a few days. You have no clue and cant speak for every dealer as you have.
"Third, a repossession order comes from a financial institution and takes way more than a couple days to execute"
You know this how? And how do you suppose a regular joe goes about repoing a car he is owed on? You do not need a court order to repo a car...it can be done when you are one day late...
"Fifth, IF your daughter did in fact have surgery, then her days off would be covered by the FMLA Act which would not impact her pay"
That one kills me! Of course fmla dorsnt necessarily mean you get paid! Maybe if ypu have paid time off accrued at your job sure...but hey dumass that law is not about payong people on medical leave...its about allowing them time off and not counting it against them and not replacing that person or firing while out on a fmla qualified event

Comcast is probably worst at checking employee backgrounds or don't care. They sent a tech to my house that had tear drop tattoos under eye. Sorry to say that is a way of bragging. In no shape or form does it mean they accidentally killed someone. It means they did it on purpose! Checked his background by last name on DOC website. I found him in seconds. Armed home invasion robbery!
