Jaguar power.

British pride.

Feels so good.

No namby-pamby, ‘we-have-to-lie‘ German technology here. This thing is not diesel powered.

ENJOY. Smile. Made my day.

A day in which I did something I very rarely do. I washed a car by hand.
It was, of course, a Jaguar.


KIA U.S.A. Again Displays Its Stupidity Post Lying About Mileage — Now It Won’t Let You Lease A Sedona Van.

I went to Team KIA, Concord, N.H., this afternoon to lease a Sedona van.

I had called them up on Saturday and told them I was coming.

When I get there they tell me that KIA U.S.
does not lease Sedonas.
You have to buy them outright.

That is STUPID.

Another example of KIA just not understanding what it takes to do business in the U.S.A.

They were STUPID to lie about their mileage … and then get caught.

By the way, they have yet to pay us the supposed rebate. So they lied about that too. Must be how they do business in Korea.

When I was a consultant I did a ton of work c. 1994 – 1995 for a Chicago leasing company. Father and son. Father had set up the company nearly 30 years ago. They were extremely successful, loaded and very generous. 95% of all of my business meeting with them were in very exclusive and expensive restaurants and clubs in and around Chicago. Until I started working for them I never realized that Hotels have secret, hidden away private clubs. You could stay at the hotel and never know that there was a huge club that you entered via a hidden door. Well, they taught me a lot about leasing. The father would say, repeatedly: ‘as long as something has a residual value that can be determine, you can lease it’. They leased Rolexs and sail boats — in addition to cars, trailers, planes and high-end IT equipment.

I remember that a few years ago Hyundai and  KIA didn’t do leasing at all.

Now that they do, to say that they don’t lease certain models is stupid.

Yes, I lease a KIA Sportage.

I like leasing. We don’t do that much milage. We don’t commute. We have two cars. No the Sportage we average 750 miles/month. So leasing is great for me. Hand it in at the end of 3 years and get a new car.

Bloody KIA. I sent them one of my polite e-mails.

Another way to interpret their reluctance to lease a Sedona is to assume that it is a piece of junk with NO RESIDUAL value after 3 years. That would make sense. If after 3 years it is worth nothing then leasing does not make sense to the lessee. So that must be it. The KIA Sedona is worthless after 3 years. That is what KIA is saying.

Now I will have to lease a van from Nissan or Chrysler.

I like Team KIA. They were 100% upfront when we leased the Sportage. That is why I was going to get another KIA. Well screw them.

I Just Got A FULL 100% Refund From ‘Direct Sat TV’, N.C. For Their Misrepresentation As ‘DirecTV’.

Of course I am delighted. Also impressed that they confessed and decided to do the right thing. That is always good.

But, this was a LOT of hassle. I spent over 4 hours on the phone — and with me, it is always the principle of the matter, rather than the dollar amount (though that is important too). Yes, I did file a complaint with the N.C. BBB — and they will now close to out, as they should, saying matter fully resolved. But, it will be there as a warning to others.

Given that I also complained to DirecTV that I was scammed by one of THEIR authorized resellers I got some ‘non-monetary’ compensation from them too — as I should, given the aggravation. So I kind of made out, as I also did when DISH dropped NEO and TEN Cricket from their ‘Cricket Pack’. But, I am an expert and complaining.

I worry about people who get scammed by these resellers.

See the difference in price. $19.95 from DirecTV vs. $74.97 from ‘Direct Sat TV’. $55.02 difference. That is how they make their money.

So be warned. Be careful. Be very careful.

‘Direct Sat TV’, N.C., Just Called Me And Admitted Misrepresentation! I Am Supposedly Getting 100% Refund. BBB Complaint Accepted.

Got the above e-mail from the ‘Better Business Bureau’ this morning.

Then, about 20 minutes ago, I received a call from ‘Jeanine’ — who said she was from ‘Direct Sat’.

She said that she was calling about my complaints — though she was not specific about which ones; i.e., complaint I filed with BBB or the joint call I made yesterday morning with a Disputes Manager from my Bank of America credit card.

But she said this. That they had reviewed my call with them on June 12, as I had asked them to do in both complaints, and that I WAS RIGHT.

The rep had, as I was claiming, MISREPRESENTED ‘Direct Sat’ as ‘DirecTV’!

Remember that was my contention all along. I checked. They lied. I am not totally stupid. Much of the time I do know what I am doing.

She says that they will now give me a FULL refund. She has given me a phone number: 910-693-30xx.

I will not count my pigs until I see the credit on my online statement. But, this is a start.

I asked her if the rep had been fired. She said that she did not know but that the ‘case’ had been escalated to the proper management.

This is still SICK. 

‘Direct Sat TV’ From N.C. Scammed Me. Duped Me Out Of $24.99 By Misrepresentation. I Filed BBS Complaint.

Direct Sat lied to me, blatantly, three times last Tuesday, June 12, 2013. They told me, three times, that I was talking DIRECTLY to DirecTV. I was not.

They overcharged me and gave me a $39.99 3-year warranty package that DirecTV does NOT HONOR!

DirecTV cancelled my order through Direct Sat and the account they set up. They set up a NEW account with the RIGHT PRICING.

Direct Sat will NOT give me my money back. My Bank of America credit card dispute handling department called them up with me on the line. They tell me that $24.99 for ‘shipping’ is not refundable and that I am screwed on that THOUGH I returned the equipment they sent me today — via UPS. So they are screwing me for $24.99 after they lied to me.

I checked with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The last complaint that they dealt with says 100% what I experienced. They represented themselves as DirecTV. Exactly what they did with me.

This is wrong. This is FRAUD.

Yes, I too filed a BBS complaint as you can see. This company is unethical. They are just plain scammers. I am sick to my stomach that I was scammed. Yes, I feel stupid. But, I did my best to validate them. I asked 3 times!    This is the problem with a phone call. If it was on the Web I would have seen the URL.

My recommendation is that you avoid this company like the plague. Their phone number is: 1-800-595-4101.

Check out the BBS complaints and see that I did file my complaint too.

DirecTV ‘compensated’ me SOME for this $24.99 when I called them back today. I won’t know whether that is valid till I get my service on Friday.

I will keep you posted.

Heads Up. Stay clear of Direc Sat TV.

They also go by the name ‘travelresorts.com’.


This is EXACTLY what happened to me. They lied. Click to read the complaints at BBB.
