A: California Law provides a myriad of reasons to justify rescinding a contract to purchase or lease a new or used automobile. Basically, California allows an automobile purchase or lease agreement to be rescinded if it is based upon fraud, mistake, or significant non-disclosure or concealment. The basic concept is that there must be a "meeting of the minds" in order for a contract to be valid.
A contract that is put in writing tends to eliminate significant "he said-she said" arguments over what exactly was agreed to, since the significant terms of the contract are usually contained in the writing. California law requires that the contract have no blank spaces when signed, and that the consumer receive a copy of any contract after signing.
However, California provides consumers with vast protections against misrepresentations that are made during the negotiations for the purchase or lease of goods or services. Further, there is no requirement that the salesperson intended to make a misrepresentation; the fact that a representation was made during the negotiations which in fact is not true is all that is required.
Some examples of misrepresentations, which would justify rescinding the sale, may include the following, especially if more than one of them is present:
The inaccurate representation that the vehicle (or other consumer product) is new, when in fact it is used or reconditioned (if your "new" vehicle had several hundred miles on the odometer, it was not likely a "new" vehicle);
Any inaccurate representation concerning the quality or benefits of goods or services (this would usually cover anything told to you by the salepersom, or sales and finance manager, including how mechanically sound the used car is, how much you'll be protected by the service contract, that the finance rate is the best available, etc.);
Significant non-disclosures of information required to be disclosed (such as the fact that the vehicle was a "demonstrator," was previously totaled due to body damage or flood, has a salvaged title, was a previous "lemon law buy-back", was involved in an accident involving damage to the frame, and a whole host of other problems which should have been disclosed but were not).
