If you took posession of the car and signed the paperwork, then you have entered into a binding legal contract to purchase. Unless the dealer agrees to void the contract, you are bound by what you signed. Hint: Do not accept posession of the car (at least in Texas). There is not 3 day grace period in Texas at least, but this will allow you go escape if you think about it ahead of time. Lets make this simple: The contract binds the one selling to sell, and the one buying it to buy...according to the terms you both agree to and are contained in it. READ YOUR CONTRACT (that thing you signed and initialled all over that you agreed with the promises you were making, understood them, knew someone else would act on them, etc.). I It is possible that the dealer allowed some possibility of return (baring lemon law issues which take months, if not years, to develop), in the agreement...but normally it also includes that you would pay all paperwork, titles, taxes, cleaning/restocking...etc that are incurred (which is clearly more than reasonable for them having acted on what you wanted and your changing your mind). Car sales contracts are not recindable...and they may not be complete until some other event, like inspection or such....but if you have been given allowed to take the the vehicle by the dealer, and you accepted it...its more than certain that the deal is done! Most sales contracts made and done at the home may have the protection you address....and even then, if the actions of the contract are done, you can't use the protection and recind it later.

Deffinately!! Dealerships will not tell you this but you have 30 days to return the vehichle no questions asked without penalty. That is a very wrong answer.

Can you return a car you bu from a dealer?

Once a vehicle is "delivered", it's your vehicle unless either the dealership grants you a return, or the financing falls through. A complete delivery is going to the dealership, signing all the necessary paperwork, then driving the vehicle off the dealership's property. It is important to know what contracts you are signing and how it will effect your payment. Never sign until you know all the figures and have a "We Owe" signed by the General Manager for any open or 'promised' items. There is no "3 day Right-to-Rescind" for vehicle purchases anywhere in the USA.Exceptions: California dealerships must offer the customer an option to purchase a "3-day return policy". If the customers signs the waiver instead, then they do not get the ability to return the car. In addition, Carmax does offer a 5-day return policy, however that is not a law, it's a promotion they offer to their customers.
