Depends on the private seller.

was there a guarantee or was it sold as is?

You cannot just return a car to the seller. There is no cooling off period on the sale of a vehicle. In your situation you can call the seller and ask for your money back, or ask the seller to repair the vehicle. If the seller refuses, your only recourse is to sue the seller in court. If you bought this car "AS IS" and there was no implied or written warranty then you will have to prove in court that the seller knew the engine was about to lock up. You must prove that the car was not serviceable on the day you bought it and the seller knew it. Get a written statement to that fact from 2 mechanics and that will strengthen your case. Otherwise you will probably loose on a car you bought "AS IS'.

After a car sale, a private party can return the car within thirty days. This return policy is dependent on the individual seller.

Not unless the seller expressly stated something that turned out no to be true. For instance, if you asked the seller whether the transmission was good and he verbally guaranteed it, and you then found out it wasn't, you have recourse to ask for your money back. However, there's no 3-day return rule for vehicles, new or used. You struck a contract with the seller when you bought the car and it belongs to you.

Yes if the seller does not specifically state the car is being sold AS IS and it is not as discribed or advertised in a public listing such as penny savor, craigs list ect. the buyer has the right for a full refund within 30 days of purchase.

NO, you cannot return a car you have bought. The cooling off period or buyer's remorse law does not apply to the purchase of vehicles.

online, car dealership or a private seller!

No.... The time to check a car out is before you buy. Unless otherwise agreed to a purchase from a private seller is typically AS IS so buyer beware.

Can I return the car (2006 Hyundai Sonata) I just bought?

Some Questions should be asked when buying a Used Car from a private seller like : How many miles are on the odometer? Why are you selling the car? How would you describe your used car's condition? Who was this vehicle bought from? Where was this car bought? What kind of oil do you use in the car? What are you willing to sell the car for? How long of a test drive can i take? Are you willing to let me get this inspected independently? What's the last used car you sold?

No. The only way you can return it is if the seller agrees to take it back. The Buyers Remorse laws do not apply to the purchase of a vehicle in any state.

If you signed an As Is agreement, the seller is not responsible. Try contacting the seller, he might be willing to work with you.

What makes you think you can just return a used car? You are referring to the Cooling Off Period or Buyer's Remorse Law. That law only applies to unsolicited sales and not to the sale of a car. Unless the seller agrees, you cannot return a car you have purchased. You bought it so therefore it is your car.

If you are a GA resident, you do not have to pay sales tax as long is it is a private seller, even if out of state private seller.

No, you've already paid taxes on it when you bought it, so the one buying it from you is the one who will pay the sales tax.

Try to talk to them and see if you can work things out. If not take them to a small claims court.

NO, the buyer's remorse law does not apply to the sale of vehicles. You bought it and you own it, unless the seller agrees to let you out of the deal.

Not unless the seller agrees to take it back. Otherwise you bought it, and you are stuck with it. The Buyers Remorse law does not apply to the purchase of a vehicle.Not unless the seller agrees to take it back. Otherwise you bought it, and you are stuck with it.

One of my buddies bought a car in GA and he ended up paying for sales tax. I'm not sure if it applies for all.

Only if the seller expressly told you that it did not have a rebuilt title. That would be fraud. Otherwise, it was incumbent upon you to know the history of the car before purchase; while the seller should have disclosed that information, he wasn't legally obligated to do so.

There is no return policy unless the dealer agrees to this. You bought the car so it is yours. A car dealer is not like Walmart where you can return an item you bought.

Assuming you bought the car used, did you buy it from a dealer or from a private seller? If you bought it from a private seller, you're out of luck. If you bought it from the dealer, you may be entitled to Breach of Warranty compensation. If the car's mileage is under 125,000, the state of MA applies an 'Express Warranty,' of 30 days. If, inside that time, the car has the same malfunction 3 times or is in the shop more than ten days, the buyer is entitled to their money back (minus an allowance for any mileage they've put on the car since purchase.)

In a used car yard or private seller, or a car collector
