Was he successful in getting the charge run through?

I know most will cap the charge to $5k.

I wonder though how willing 'starving' dealers are and if they have an appetite to forgo the rules to complete a sale.

Maybe walk into a domestic american car dealership and try.

At this point in my life I mostly live up at college for most of the time and go to visit home every so often. If he decided to kick me out, which he would not, it would not really effect me. He pays for my phone and car insurance but he also get to take all of the tax credits for my school so I give slightly more than I take. He has even suggested that I stop being dependent so I can get the credits to reduce the amount of loans I need. He is a good parent and would not give me a ultimatum to stop me from doing something he disagrees with. He knows that since I am 21 I have to make my own life choices.
