Notes / Description: 

Norton traded in one car for another, financing it with Southern Finance. He was given a credit for the car, & the contract reflected the credit. However, the total installments he was asked to pay over an 18 month period added up to the total before the credit. Norton stopped paying; the car was repossessed. After repossession he was billed for further amounts, but claims he is no longer liable as he turned the car over to the finance company.
