ENGLEWOOD — Rita Lee is terminally ill and has cirrhosis of the liver. She uses her 1997 Isuzu Rodeo to drive to weekly treatments in Tampa.
On disability and with limited resources, Lee rents-to-own her vehicle from a buy-here-pay-here dealership, Bayview Auto Sales in Nokomis. Several times, the 51-year-old has fallen behind on her payments. On at least four occasions, Bayview has sent a two-man team to repossess Lee’s car. It’s been repossessed twice, and she’s paid and gotten it back.
