How much extra will the fee be to talk on the phone?

Good Morning

I am sorry for what I am about to tell you as it is not what you will wish to hear.

There is no cooling off period on buying a car.

You cannot cancel the contract unless it is subject to finance and the finance is not approved.

If you want a call it is a further $85.00
