In most instances the answer is NO. But there are some instances which you may. In general, if you buy from a private seller and the money transaction is complete and you have signed the back of the title, than the car is yours, even if 10 seconds later the engine blows. Buying from a dealer is different, dealers have to adhere to the laws of their state regarding sales of used cars, and in most states there are some laws that protect the consumer in one way or another. The ONLY time which you will have a right to return the car regardless of who the seller is (dealer or private), is when: 1) Odometer is not the actual reading and the seller did not disclose that. (its a federal law, they have to) 2) If the car has frame damage, salvage title, or any other type of title other than "clear" and the seller didn't disclose. These 2 conditons have to be reported to the buyer, and most sellers will even include the fact on the bill of sale to protect themselves. But if they fail to inform you and you find out about it later, than you have to be reimbursed. Hope this helped you out.

A buyer should check the return policy of the store when buying used motorcycle parts. Used parts should come with some sort of guarantee for their performance.

When you're buying a used motorcycle, the manufacturer matters much less than the quality and condition of the cycle, as a good brand can still be a bad bike.

In the state of Georgia there is no grace period after buying a used car. Once the contract is signed the car belongs to the buyer and they cannot change their mind.

Once you sign the papers you cannot change your mind unless the seller agrees. Buyers remorse laws do not apply to the purchase of a vehicle.

Sure! But it is up to the seller to agree to take it back. LOL
