It is possible, but extremely difficult, to return a new vehicle once you have signed the contract AND driven it off the dealer lot. In some cases, dealers have a return policy, but the condition is usually if it turns out there was something wrong with the vehicle. If you're talking about backing out of a deal, however, it is not easy at all. A lot of people mistakenly believe there is a 3-day "cooling off" period, which is entirely false. Most states only allow this cooling off period only if the seller initiated the relationship that led to the sale. If you walk onto a dealer's lot, it is assumed that you intended to buy a car, and therefore, no cooling off period.

What makes you think you can return the car? Once you purchase a vehicle used or new you own it. If it is a new vehicle it has become a used vehicle after you bought it and it is worth far less than 9 days earlier when you drove it off the lot. There is no law allowing you to return the vehicle. However you can return the vehicle for repair as this vehicle is under warranty.

If you purchase a new vehicle and the vehicle has defects can you return the vehicle?

Not really.In almost all situations you do not have an automatic right to return a vehicle. You must first give the manufacturer the opportunity to repair the defect. Lemon laws are in place but these only allow you to return a Chronically Bad vehicle (i.e. a lemon). You will need to demonstrate that there is a pattern of defects, not just one. Even if you wish to return a vehicle under the lemon laws you will need to follow the process in your state.There is a new exception to this. In December 2009 some US Manufacturers began offering a marketing campaign where you can return a vehicle for any reason within the first 30 days. There is no guarantee that this will continue or be expanded to all makes and models.

Can you return a new car?

No. It is nothing more than a myth that the "Buyer's Remorse" or "Cooling Off Period", laws apply to the purchase of an vehicle of any kind, new or used. Those type laws do not apply to vehicle purchases in any state. Once you purchase a vehicle you own it. Also once you purchase a new vehicle it becomes a used vehicle the instant you drive it off the lot and is worth far less than before. Those type laws apply to unsolicited sales as in a door to door salesman or phone sales. The only way you could return a vehicle is if the selling dealer had such an offer as GM has done in the past, or if the selling dealer agreed to allow you to return the vehicle. Otherwise you are stuck with your decision to buy the vehicle.
