spmkk: jst07: "buzzcut73: realmolo: I don't know this guys financial situation, but I'm always amused when people that can't afford their vehicle house are surprised when it gets repossessed foreclosed.Buy a cheaper vehicle home, dumbasses.For some, it is because they bought what was an affordable vehicle at the time, but later on a job loss or whatever made the payments unaffordable. You can't sell the vehicle because usually you're upside down on the loan, so you're basically screwed.Like I said, in SOME cases. In most, though, people get more vehicle than they can afford and fall behind relatively quickly, or are dealing with one of those shady buy here pay here places that will repo your shiat if you're a day late.While you're probably quite often right about people being upside down on the loan and trapped, one would not be upside down if he/she bought a vehicle house they could afford with a sensible down payment and loan duration."Why the double standard?Why do we fight so hard for foreclosure reform to protect people who made majorly irresponsible decisions about borrowing for their homes (and blame the "predatory" banks), but so quickly and harshly condemn people who made minorly irresponsible decisions about borrowing for their cars (and cheer the lenders)?
