Thank you for using JustAnswer!
Do you have your contract in front of you right now?
I see. Hope everything is okay.
As a general matter, when you buy a truck, you're stuck with the contract. There's no window to get out of it -- unless they included such a clause in the contract. Those usually don't exist.
Separately, I don't understand these places who allow you to drive off the lot with the vehicle without the financing being in place.
There is, of course, nothing to prevent you from finding a lender to finance your purchase.
I am going to assume that you are making payments to them until a different lender is located.
If there's no time limit listed in the contract, then, yes, they can take however long they want.
As the saying goes, the devil is in the details.
In this case, the details are in the actual written agreement.
The extended delay would suggest to me that they are having a problem finding a lender for you.
Good luck and best wishes!
I hope that you found this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
