Hyundai Liars – Universal Hyundai Financing Scam, Fraud, Deceiving Car Buyers

This morning I saw an ad at Universal Hyundai for 0% down payment and 0% APR for new car purchases. Upon arriving, I got nothing but lies, deceit, manipulation, and the proverbial bait and switch.

Today my wife and I went to Universal Hyundai, 12751 S. Orange Blossom Trail, Orlando, FL 32837 and were shown a lovely 2009 Hyundai Sonata by a charming salesman.

Once we spent several hours test driving the cars we were to choose from and bickering with the salesman as to price, it seemed we were nearly ready to finalize our purchase.

But not until we were thrown a clever financial scam, attempting to defraud, and deceive we the car buyers. Upon coming to an agreement for a purchase price of $15,987, we then noticed how many additional fees – taxes, dealear fees, etc. added up to $18,099.59.

Upon stomaching these exorbitant fees and preparing to finalize the purchase, we agreed to make a $4,000 down payment, leaving us with a balance of $14,099.59 to finance.

The charming salesman first said we would get 6.9% APR on the interest rate. However once our social security numbers and credit report were run, we suddenly were informed our APR would be 9.9% APR. Being a bit willing to go a little further to get this car, we played along.

At this point the salesmen started to back off, going in and out of the inner glassed caged room to talk to the finance guys (most overweight and grumpy), who massaged and manipulated numbers in an attempt to greatly rip us off.

We were originally told by the Hyundai sales rep our monthly payments would be $219 a month if we made a $4,000 down payment. Doing some simple math I calculated the remaining amount owed $14,099.59 multiplied by (1 + .099 interest for the annual APR) equalling $15,495.45 to be divided over 72 month payments at $215.21.

Then the fun began when the lying financiers at Universal Hyundai began their deceptive financing and massaging the numbers to make hefty profits. They said we would have to make monthly payments of $262.95 for 72 months – which I multiplied through totalling a $18,932.40 + $4,000 down payment to arrive at a grand total of $22,932.40 for a car originally priced at $15,987 nearly a $7,000 mark up.  The 0% APR and 0 down was a blatant lie, scam, and attempt to defraud.

Interestingly, the so called 9.9% APR promised ($14,099 divided by $15,495.45) in actuality turned out to be 34.276% APR with their new manipulated numbers at $22,932.40.

Don’t deal with Universal Hyundai. As I told them in front of all other prospective buyers on the sales showroom, “You guys are crooks!”

USAA and CCC Valuescope Report Vehicles Used to Devalue Insured Motorists Automobiles in Total Losses

Beat your lying & cheating insurance company to get thousands more $$$ you deserve and paid for with your hard earned premiums for years. Get what you deserve from your accident & personal injury claim.


I am extremely concerned about the way my insurer USAA and their hired gun CCC Valuescope compute, calculate, and arrive at what they deem “actual cash value” for vehicles in the event of a total loss.

As I mentioned to the Department of Insurance Regulation, the DMV in Florida requires insurers to pay the replacement value of a like kind and quality vehicle to owners involved in total loss settlements with insurance companies. USAA however is only agreeing to pay me the “actual cash value.”

Most importantly, the manner by which USAA computes, calculates, and arrives at the “actual cash value” seems very deceptive, misleading, and fraudulent when one looks carefully at the CCC Valuescope Report upon which they base their valuations and calculations.

To be specific, note below the problematic histories of VIN numbers of vehicles on my CCC Valuescope report (39813905) provided to me by my insurer USAA. These of course are the vehicles CCC Valuescope and USAA used as comparable vehicles to my 1997 Honda Accord, Special Edition.

It is also worth noting that my 1997 Honda Accord SE never left the State of Florida, whereas these “comparable” vehicles submitted by USAA and CCC Valuescope have been out of Florida and across the country. My car has never been auctioned, nor has it had liens, neither required emission and safety inspections, nor been in accidents as reported in these subject vehicles. Therefore my insurer should not use these subject cars below as they are not a fair and honest value comparison to my own vehicle.

I urge every insured motorist to assess treble damages for this blatant attempt on the part of insurance companies to deceive we the insured fiduciaries and devalue our vehicles before paying out monies rightfully due us the insured.

Vari Asian Crazy Buffet Altamonte Springs, FL Food Poisoning

My wife and I were food poisoned at Crazy Buffet a.k.a. Vari Asian in Altamonte Springs, FL on August 5, 2008 while eating lunch at 1pm. Within 7 to 8 hours I was hugging the toilet and barfing all night until 5:30am. 

It was the worst night of my life and my wife also suffered being in great pain for days.

Has anyone else experienced food poisoning at Crazy Buffet? If so, please contact me. 

We definitely have legal grounds to be compensated for a breach of duty of care along with pain and suffering.
