Angry financing new bike

Be very careful financing your new bike. I could have used my credit union to finance, however suzuki put out an incentive that I couldnt pass up, or so I thought. These turned out to be the worst creditors I have ever had to do buisness with. I wish I would have stayed with my credit union and am in the process of switching right now. I used to be a suzuki enthusiast, but Im so pissed at these people that you can color me red. My next bike will be a HONDA.

Let me guess, they had a killer intro APR that you couldn't pass up, and you didn't read the fine print that noted it was actually a *credit card* that you were signing up for and your APR would hit over 19% once the intro rate was finished?

If so, then that sucks, but next time you'll read the fine print better.

If not, then what happened?

Oh, holy old dead thread Batman! This post is over three months old. Odds are, we'll never know.

Now where did I leave my Tootsie Pop?

I financed my 250 through the whole kawasaki incentive thing. They told me right up front that the APR will be 5.99%, and will go up to 21% or something like that after the introductory period of two years passes. And yes, it was a credit card. But so what? My plan from the beginning was to pay it off in less than a year (and I have 400 bucks to go, yay ), and then ditch the card. So unless the low APR period is super short, what's there to complain about? Pay the bike off within that period and no issues, no worries.
