Hi Everyone , i was hoping for some advice , after looking through documentation it seems i was REALLY naive when i took out the credit for my car , i had finance on 10.12.2014 for a renault megane 2007 1.9 DCI To cut it short they charged me £2,350 for the car and the loan amount by credit for cars was £5500 !! i was paying £150 a month , ive paid £2,300 off it , but with all the numerous problems ive had to pay for with the car from the start i stopped paying last month last payment i made was on 17th june and i had to pay via "email@example.com a Guy from avelo emailed me 10th june saying i needed to contact them urgently to discuss arrears (he was a negotiations case handler) i gave him a email back and told them when id make a payment he replied saying "sorry our systems have not been updated and could i ask how you will be making a payment ? and can we have your current phone number" i didnt give him my number but id updated them with my new address and he replied back "thank you ive updated our systems and "are you willing to continue paying £175 per month starting from next month?" i never replied then today i had a different person who was "Trainee Case Handler" asking me to contact the office to discuss arrears (the same like before) The reason i am not making payments is because i cannot afford to , the advice im looking for is Can they take the car away from me ? (on the documents i signed it stated that they could not take the goods if payments totalling £1997 have been made then they may not take the goods back against my wishes unless we get a court order) this is the Credit4Cars agreement i signed 2 years ago , also i have noticed that they charged me £375 for a "Stronghold Protector payment assurance system" they said they can disable my car with it as they reckon a device has been attached , the reason why i say they reckon because when i was late with a payment with C4C they threatened me they were going to disable it , i was not in a good way then and snapped back and replied "be my guest as i dont care" (they did this 3 times to me but never disabled it and also when i asked a mechanic to look for it he said he couldnt see anything , when i chose the car the people at trade center where i bought the car said because i have a tracking device my insurance would go down now when i queried with them what make it was for my insurance they would not tell me so i was paying a LOT more than i should have for my insurance , sorry to have gone on and on its just that the cars wheel bearing has gone and it will cost me £200 tomorrow and if they are going to take back the vehicle then i wont get it fixed , thanks for your time any advice appreciated
