I am in a panic mode. I decided to take all of my paperwork to the Arkansas Revenue Department, to check on the tags situation on my Camry. They directed me to have the car assessed first. Then I was directed to have the assessment stamped, and recieve the paperwork in order to get my tags. At the DMV, I was told that the total to get the tags and registration would be $1,062. I gasped out "I can't afford THAT!" I'm on a fixed income. Is there any way to make payments? (No). They asked me if there was any way I could get a loan, (NO). They suggested I talk to Orr Chrysler, where I got the car. I drove the 45 min. drive to Searcy, and asked to talk to the manager. I was directed to see the finance officer, then the salesman who sold me the car, to the dealership manager, and back and forth several times. (They were PRETENDING to care, while playing the shuffle him around endlessly routine) Finally, the pretense of caring was abandoned completely and he flat out told me, it was MY FAULT I could not afford the tags, there was NO WAY he was going to help me, I should have read the FINE PRINT on the contract. I told him in my defense, I've never purchased a vehicle in the State of Arkansas, only CA and TX...and there the tags were INCLUDED in each and every sale, HOW WAS I TO KNOW? All of this over a little over $1,000. I BEGGED him for help, I said if I had the tags, and could drive legally, I could get a part time job and reimburse the dealership for the tags! (To deaf ears and a stone heart).
