I just saw your question.
Allow me to read through it and if you are still there, we can chat about it.
The resind clause explicitly states that it must be agreed to upon in a separate box on the front requiring a signature. Can we send you a copy of the contract confidentially?
There is nothing on the contract stating anything about being contingent upon approval of finance; except in the resind clause which we did not sign.
"Further, the basic assumptions underlining the contract must not be frustrated, or there is a possibility that the contract will be found to not be binding." Please explain.
Obviously they thought the credit was approved or they would not have let us drive away with the car. Nowhere else in the contract does it state anything about contingent upon finance.
The dealership appears to be trying to bully us into signing new paperwork when we disagree with the new terms which include an additional fee for a service warranty which again we already have a signed contract for with no fee.
We asked them to discount the price of the car by $250.00 to offset the higher intrest rate. They came back by discounting the car $200.00 and adding a $315.00 warranty which added an additional $100.00 to the original contract amount.
We have only recieved temoray plates and were to recieve paperwork from the dealer to register the vehicle at motor vehicle.
How should we proceed at this point?
I guess we will have to go back to the dealer one more time and explain our legal position to see if they back off before filing a complaint with the attorney generals' office and seeking further legal council.
