Basically a good friend of mine bought an 09' Corolla S in late 08'.. She had a high paying job, was enrolled in school, and was living in her own in a very nice apartment. Two years later in 2010 she was laid off and struggling with her bills. She moved to a smaller apartment and dropped some classes to make it by every month. But, she was still struggling to make her rent, pay for school, and make her car payment. Eventually the car got repo'd, auctioned, and she was left with $4k bill left over from the car loan. She was given 1 of 3 options. Pay $3500 in a lump sum to settle the debt, make payments cut into 12 (so 1 year), or be sued. She didn't have the money for either of those payment options so she was sued. Her bank account was frozen, all her savings were garnished, and to cover all the other fees (court, lawyers, etc) a portion of her unemployment check is garnished every week... She is now unable to pay for any school and is on her last 30 days in her apartment due to Toyota garnishing her bank account and taking her rent money...
Did Toyota act accordingly? Is their money worth more than the cost of a person's living expenses? Keep in mind, from the time she got laid-off to the time she got sued was only a 5 month period!
