So I am not legally bound by the contract? Do I just call the dealer and tell them I no longer want the car? What about the credit card down payment? Should I contact my credit card company and dispute the charge?
Thank you. No I did not see all of your previous response (I had to scroll further). Since it has been almost 6 days, if the dealer has already started and/or completed DMV paperwork for transfer of title, will I be liable for any fees?
Is the "until the tailpipe leaves the driveway" rule listed in any California motor vehicle code or some other reference that I can refer to?
Thank you for your help. I will call the dealer tomorrow and tell them I no longer want the car and to refund my deposit.
