  1. I’m very disappointed with GMC Financial. Whenever making business with them make sure you read everything so you don’t get any surprises as the financing inf you may receive by the seller who represent GMC can give you inf different from what you are signing on the contract. We were surprised when making the monthly payment as GMC doesn t have the courtesy to let the client know when there will be a change. We will think twice before financing with GMC again.
