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.

Once you have bought a car you cannot return it. A car is not like a shirt. There are no refunds on cars.

I was told buy a used car manager that if the car does not leave the lot you do not own it. Even if the paperwork is all done. once it hits the street its yours.

You cannot return the car. The Buyer's Remorse law does not apply to vehicles. It only applies to unsolicited sales.

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. If you signed paperwork and took delivery of vehicle it is yours unless and until you win in court. ANSWER Sure you can return it!! If you don't care about your CREDIT and the negative impact that will have on it. When you purchase a vehicle and sign a contract, that's it. If you are 18 years or older, you should understand what you're signing and if you're not sure about the vehicle.....why are you signing?
