I negotiated a lease for my fiancée on a new chevy traverse however, when she went in to do the paperwork they totally changed the deal from 544 a month including tax to 679 by telling her that the deal inalready made disnt include tax etc.. but it did, they where just being dishonest! Also, they sold her unnecessary tire ins and appetance package etc... That she felt she was forced into. I was originally going to use my 1k off lease incentive because I lease a BMW but, she decided to use usaa pricing instead and the deal has been done for over a week and the dealer called and said he wants to bring him a check for 1k or, a copy of one of my lease statements. I am not giving those crooks anything after they where so dishonest not to mention I am not on the deal at all! Now we are getting calls from gmac about her previous car asking why it's not paid off yet? This can't be legal or ethical and, I am so upset that all this is happening. I don't want to give them anything after they treated her this way. What should I do?

I'm a little lost. Apologies. You all sound fantastic. I could really use your advice.
My girlfriend is in the market for a new car, knows the features she wants, but is unfamiliar w/ most models. Any awesome suggestions from these criteria?
4-wheel drive -- candle handle snow country, backpacking trips, hiking, camping, etc.
Relatively High MPG within it's class (not a gas guzzler).
Common features: Air conditioning, Power lock
Price range as <$50,000 (NEW) - Prefers non-luxury brand (or more specifically, not the kind of brand that has high maintenance costs; she's heard horror stories from some audi/lexus/bmw?) - Not picky about body model, per-say, but does not want a minivan, nor a 2-door coupe. Most other options a-OK. Would like a brand known for longevity -- wants to buy new, be able to rely on for many years. Engine preference: V6! Gas or hybrid OK as long as it meets the other specs. Not diesel. Size: Prefer if it can fit 5 people. Drive: Automatic Interior: Non-leather Gas tank size no less than 12gl Roof rack integrated preferred Would like some good cargo capacity (it'd be a plus) Brand: She has received some good feedback/suggestions on Subaru -- but is not explicitly attached. She's actually interested to see if you guys also agree this is a good option?

This discussion lives in Sedans but you'll get plenty of suggestions in there:

Here's another fun tool:
My Car Match
Subaru is a bit of a niche car company still, but sales are going through the roof. (csmonitor.com). My sister likes her '05 Forester. I haven't checked out the newer ones, but I like her Forester body style better than my old '97 Outback. Check out the Subaru Crew here too.

Tell her to check out a Toyota 4Runner.
#2986 of 3020 Can't find "Add a Discussion" link here on Smart Shopper Board...?

My questions really belong here on the Smart Shopper board, but I can't find an "Add a Discussion" link in order to start my post. Each of the other boards I enter, here on the Edmond's forum, give me an "Add a Discussion" link right at the top of the list of posts. However, there is no such link for me here on the Smart Shopper board. Instead, I just see a "Watch this Forum" link. What am I missing? How can I start a new discussion? Thanks in advance for any help!

It's an organizational thing. Per the Help link, "Please note that there are some Forums where members may not create new discussions, including Smart Shopper, Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences and Maintenance & Repair. If you cannot find an appropriate discussion for your questions or comments in these Forums, contact the Host for assistance."
Members here tend to subscribe to existing discussions and miss new ones, so if you can search and find one that fits, that's probably your best bet.
