You can't return it. You can however demand they repair the car under the factory warranty. They are only obligated to repair not replace, or refund your money.

Possibly, depends on the dealer. I run a used car dealership, and the only way I would take a car return is if there is a major problem with it. Bad motor, transmission, etc. I wouldn't do it if you just simply changed your mind.

If you purchased a car, you can't return it after three years but you can sell it. People return cars if they are leased.

If you mean that you purchased a car, had second thoughts and want to return it, there is no grace period in ND or the United States. Once you sign a contract (and verbal contracts between private parties are also legally binding), you are bound by the terms of that contract. The only way you could return the car would be if it falls under your state lemon law or if it was blatantly falsely represented, as in you asked if the transmission was good and the seller affirmed that it was when, in fact, it was bad. Otherwise, you own that car.

No, you cannot return a used car after having for a few months. In most cases, you cannot return a used car at all once you have purchased it.

No, the car depreciates after you take it off the lot from the dealership.

Yes, depending on the dealership, you should have a 15-30 day period to return the car.

To know if a car can be returned 24 hours after it was purchased a person will need to know what car lot it was purchased from. It will depend on what the rules are for the specific car lot.

When your transmission goes bad, you have two options. First option is to give the transmission to your dealer and a get a refurbished (remanufactured) transmission in return. Second option is to get your transmission repaired (it would be taken apart and the defective parts repaired/replaced). This is called transmission re-build.

Oklahoma does not allow a consumer to return a newly purchased vehicle. Once the contract is signed the car belongs to the buyer.

If you purchased it as is, you are probably out of luck. Unless your state has a "lemon" law. Check with your Attorney General's office. Find out what car dealers don't want you to know at www.dealertricks.com If the transmission is replaced or repaired it will be at your expense, because it was sold to you "as is". Answer check: 1.) if this car had recalls on the transmission, 2.) original warranty on the car 3.) rebuilt transmission warranty, from previous owner

bad seal, the transmission is under your car by the road itself, if the seals are bad, water dirt and other debry and can penetrate (bad)

Parking brake not released, bad torque converter, bad transmission shift solenoid or bad transmission in general, broken shift cable not engaging the transmission.

No, as long as the engine is not running hot it will not bother the transmission.

my car has been slipping in the transmission would it be the that the transmission is bad or is the filiter and the transmission fluid needing changed?

User Avatar

Your engine will speed up & the car won't go any faster (transmission slipping) Or you can pull the dipstick & smell the transmission fluid if it smells burnt you may have a problem with the transmission.

If the car is on a loan, you can return the car to the creditor that has granted you a loan on it. If you have paid off the car or bought the car paid off then you can't return the car to the dealership or owner unless it states you are allowed to do so. I tried returning a car that I paid off and was allowed to return it because it did not follow the lemon laws. If it had no problems, then no I couldn't return it and get my money back on it.
