Is there a right to rescission in a automobile purchase? We

Is there a right to rescission in a automobile purchase? We bought a 2012 pre-owned Lexus RX 350 on Wednesday. After we put in our down payment and agreed to pay $31,000 for the vehicle, we met with the Financial individual. He discussed with us many options. One was extending the warranty. The vehicle has a 2 year warranty. We were then given options of extending the warranty for various years at certain prices. To extend the warranty for an additional 3 years, the cost would be $ 3,150 plus tax with unlimited mileage. If we had known this information before we put down the deposit and signed the papers, we probably would have looked for a newer model with the warranty included for 5 years at about the same price as the 2012 with the extended warranty. Do we have a case to change our minds as of Friday, September 2nd?JA: Because consumer protection law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Yes, we live in Florida. Sorry I forgot to include this information.JA: Have you contacted the manufacturer?Customer: No, it is a 2012 year automobile. It is in perfect condition.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, unless he has questions.

I had it towed to the dealership on 08-29-2016 I was told the battery needed to be replaced so I did that. I picked the car up yesterday 08-31-2016 before I could go 5 miles it broke down again with engine light, oil light and a tool light symbols showing I had to tow it again to the dealership.

Not sure if this is the right place. I am needing some help

Not sure if this is the right place. I am needing some help on a used car purchase I made from a dealership. Financed a used car on 5-7-16. This car has been back to the dealer multiple times and promised that it was fixed. Everytime I pick the car up the AC goes out the next day. This has happened 4 times already. Since I signed papers on 5-7-16, I had the car in my possession for a total of 2 weeks. 1 week it was in another shop getting repaired.To this day I have not received my license plates and found out it wouldn't pass state inspection.I have already made 2 car payments on a car that is not even in my possession. I have a rental car bill that was paid for $350.00. I am not even sure what I owe the other shop for repairs as he is helping me with payment. We finally picked the car up from the dealership on 8-17-16. The AC went out again on 8-18-16. I need help and am needing to know what I can do to get out of this vehicle?

I purchased a 2004 Saturn vue from a Honda dealership in

I purchased a 2004 Saturn vue from a Honda dealership in Pueblo. The car was purchased as is and I was told the only warranty option I had was their 3rd party power train extended warranty. I took the car in less than 24 hours from the time I purchased it, and just found out an hour ago that the transmission is completely shot and needs to be rebuilt or replaced. The dealership has mentioned that they might pay half, but living in another city, I want to know if I have any right to undo the contract? They did have me sign a paper saying that they will charge me per day and per mile for the time I used the car as wellong if the "deal falls through", but did not clarify beyond that.

We purchased a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee from a certified

We purchased a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee from a certified dealer in Madison. We drove it twice before the purchase. After signing the paperwork we walked to the parking lot and it failed to start. After 2 visits to the Jeep dealership for work on the ignition module and rear door lock malfunction that sets off the alarm system (their cost about $1200) and fuse box wiring replacement, we are still experiencing problems of the same nature. We have a 6 month, 6000 mile dealer warranty and a 50,000 mile/48 month extended warranty.Checklists posted and reviewed before the sale showed no problems.So, the car was in the shop the first 10 days of ownership. Now the car is in Colorado with our daughter and the ignition problem and hatch lock issues are recurring. The dealership is sorry and said to take it to a Jeep dealership. We are frustrated and looking for help.

I bought a Dodge Caravan from Larson Puyallup and in the

I bought a Dodge Caravan from Larson Puyallup and in the process signed for options. The next day (within 24 hours) I went down to the dealer and ask that the options be removed, basically to rescind the purchase order and draft a new order for just the car. The Finance Manager removed the extended warranty and prepay maintenance but refused to remove the remainder options - no services have been rendered and two of those options involve a warranty for key replacement and tire replacement. Do I have the right to cancel the contract for those options ?

We bought a Kenmore washer and dryer from a hometown Sears

We bought a Kenmore washer and dryer from a hometown Sears in Poplar Bluff Mo. Also extended warranty. Hometown store came out 8 times in the first year, because the appliances were 'eating' our laundry. I THINK we are now dealing with Sears not the hometown Sears. Problem has never been fixed. Hometown replaced the dryer fairly early on. It was delivered without a box and was covered in dust/dirt. First time I have ever seen a appliance (I'm 61 years old) delivered w/o box. I suspect it was a return that he 'dusted' off and pushed off on us as new. The hometown store, Sears and extended warranty people are (in my opinion) trying to keep the ball in the air long enough for all warranties to lapse. We have pics and actual items (over 200 items)that have been damaged by the appliances. We have shown items to service people and to the actual clods at the hometown store (I think the owner operator hid in the back) Do we have any recourse. My wife has found many complaints on internet about both Sears service and Kenmore washer dryers as well as recalls.JA: Because consumer protection law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Regards,JA: Do you have a copy of the warranty or receipt?Customer: YESJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My wife's (Dana Wetzel) phone #(###) ###-#### Please call her as she has been doing all of the contact and #'s .dates etc. Thanks, ***** *****

My mom purchased a car and she doesn't speak English well.

My mom purchased a car and she doesn't speak English well. When the dealership asked if she wanted extended warranty etc.. she said I don't want any options. Obviously when she went to sign the contract she didn't read it because her English is limited and she signed for all these extra options that they arbitrarily put in themselves. Do I have any options here?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Illinois less than 30 daysJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Briefly they suggested that we first call the dealership and tell them the situationJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: The car had a dead battery apparent kyoung from being in the showroom too long without a start which they replaced and there were issues with the ac that made noise. But fixed for now.
