WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS?
Unfortunately "as-is" contracts in Kansas are legal. Which means the buyer accepts the purchase of the vehicle in its condition and has no rights to later change their mind or seek to break the contract. The only way an "as-is" contract may be broken is if the dealer made specific misrepresentations regarding the vehicle. Again the misrepresentation must be specific
. For example, a misrepresentation may arise when the dealer says the engine is new, when infact it is not. There are no misrepresentations in a general statement. The misrepresentation must be specific. If that has happened to you then it would give you the right to sue for breach of contract based on those misrepresentations. Otherwise, you are unfortunately bound to the purchase.
You may wish to have your agreement reviewed by the local better business bureau who is in the business of helping consumers in such situations and see if they can help. But based on the information you have provided, you don't have a strong case without a misrepresentation.
Sorry to be the bearer of such bad news.
