    That is a very sad story.
    I hope someone doesn't have it in for you.

    Your post contains 436 words and only two periods (both in the very last line). It is all but unreadable.

    If you want people to take the time to read what you write, you need to make it easy for folks to do so by making at least a passing effort to use proper punctuation and paragraph breaks.

    In addition I see no questions in that mess of a post either.

    Here is what I made of the OP's post:

    She is buying a previously owned car over time from a dealer.
    Dealer appears to be using their own financing arrangement.
    Her contract is approaching the end.
    Salesperson calls OP and asks if she wants to buy another car.
    OP declines, saying she doesn't want another five years worth of payments.

    Dealer is using a technology known as "passtime" :

    PassTime GPS | GPS Solutions for Automotive and Powersports Vehicles

    This app seems to be able to track the car's whereabouts, I suppose to ensure the dealer's ability to "repo" the car if the buyer defaults on payments.

    The OP seems to think the dealer disabled her car after she declined to purchase another vehicle from the dealer.

    OP's suspicions were confirmed by independent analysis of a mechanic she hired to investigate the car's mysterious mechanical troubles.

    OP said the dealer attempted to repair the vehicle but troubles with the car seemed to get worse.


    The above is simply my UNDERSTANDING of the OP's post.
