Bought a car Friday June 29,2012, called dealership for return and get my trade in vehicle back. He is unwilling to do that due to the paper work already in progress.Do I have a legal right cancel out and get my traded in vehicle
State/Country relating to question: Oklahoma
Called dealer and said they were willing to trade for a vehicle in their inventory, but not cancel out the sale.
Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma. Why are you seeking to cancel? did they mislead you?
I understood that the price for the car would be $ 34,000.00, I signed for $36,000.00. My trade in was to be $21,000.00, I signed for a trade in value of $19,000.00.
This is all my fault for not contesting the difference in the numbers.
On the way home, road noise and seating was not what we expected.
You do not have an automatic right to cancel but you can cancel on other grounds. Where seller misled you about quality, price, and was unjustly enriched you may cancel for those reasons.If seller contests, you may threaten and proceed with complaint to the BBB and attorney general office, as well as through civil lawsuit for breach of contract, fraud and unjust enrichment.A call/letter from a lawyer can also add pressure and persuasion and often avoid need for those avenuesGood luck.
