Do I have 72 hours to return a used car to a dealership?
I tried to get the $21,000.00 vehicle looked at for repair or inspection, with no reply. The 72 hours is up tomorrow at noon, and now they want to pick it up tomorrow for repair. I am afraid that they are waiting for the 72 hours. They said they do not have the 72 hour clause, when I asked to just return the 2007 Hummer3. I have sent them a request informing them by fax, now that I wish to return the vehicle. What to do?? I do not trust them for I asked the problem be looked into prior to purchase, and they informed me they had and that their was nothing wrong with the car. I asked more than 3 times that the shaking in vehicle be checked. Now my wrists are falling to sleep after driving it home for the 45 minute ride. It is a safety hazard now, as the vibration is even happening in park.
there is no right to return a car once a contract has been signed. the three day "cooling off" period only refers to sales that are made unsolicited door to door.
Even if the vehicle was sold as a problem being fixed, and was lied to about the vehcles condition before selling?
if you were deceived during the sale then you can contact the consumer protection division of the Attorney General and make a complaint. but there are no laws mandating a dealer take a car back.

Do you have any suggestions as to how to get the dealership to take the car back, after all they did lie about the vehicle. If fought in court, will they be forced by law to accept the vehicle back. They did lie about the condition, and did not even look into the problem I noticed. They lied and instead said the manager looked into it. They manager had no idea that I voiced the problem and was so understaffed he could not even look at it now today??? This is a $21,000.00 vehicle purchase and they are all passing the buck. This car is a serious hazard, and I have told them that the vibration even makes your hands fall to sleep. What do I do to just convince them to take it. They lied!!!
you can speak to the manager and state that the AG is going to investigate their fraudulent sales practices and after the AG gets through with them you will sue them. they lied and that is fraud. you need to report the sale to the AG - 9 out of 10 times they come around. no one wants the AG investigating them
