Hello. I'll be happy to assist you.
Did he actually make false representations about what was in the contract? In other words, did he tell you there was one thing in the contract, but then put another thing in there? Did he give you an opportunity to read it before you signed it?
Did he actually lie about what was in it? Did he say there was one thing in the contract, but it actually said another?
So, there was a charge for the Lojack and the note is $9.52 a month higher than expected? How much was the charge for the Lojack?
OK. You could sue for misrepresentation and fraud as it relates to the Lojack (the difference in the note is probably not enough to make a claim on, since the amount will probably be viewed as inconsequential). As for the length of the contract, that is going to depend on the agreed upon sales price. So long as the total price was what you agreed to, you are going to have a difficult time arguing the length of the contract is too long, while you are at the same time arguing that the monthly payment is too high. In other words, if you shorten the length of the contract, your payments are going to go up. It is doubtful you can get out of the entire contract, but you should be able to get the cost of the Lojack removed.
