What are my legal rights to return a used car purchased in Manitoba when the deal has just closed and I have not accepted delivery of the vehicle?
Province/Territory relating to question: Manitoba
Unfortunately there is no cooling off period when you buy a car unless the dealer gave you one in your agreement.
But if you were mis-represented in some way that may be a way to get out of the contract.
my understanding is there is a consumer protection law in maniboa which extends to all retail purchases, not specifically vehicle purchases.
For sure there is but that law does not give you a cooling off period in this type of contract.
This contract is a binding contract once you agree to buy the car.
Fair enough. But the discussion with the car dealer around consumer protection and reports to the BBB could persuade them to exit the contract IF i were to select an alternate car and still do business with them. Seem logical?
And the CarFax report I received was misrepresented. It shows several repairs due to collision when I specifically asked and was told the car was NOT in a collision.
First, the site keeps going offline so don't think I've disappeared if it does this again.
You were mis-represented and that is good grounds for getting out of the contract.
And you can file complaint with the Consumer Protection Branch and the BBB and they can sue you and you will most likely win in Court.
Ok. That's good advice, "Debra". Thanks for your time. I will approach from that perspective.
If we are done please click accept. This authorizes the site to release my portion of what you paid them to me.
