Hi, I purchased...

Hi, I purchased a vehicle last night . After signing all paper work I drove home. The vehicle seemed very slow in pick up . I left the vehicle in the drive way for approximately 30 minutes . Then went to go out in it .

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

The vehicle kept stalling and would not go into gear

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

This is in W A and the vehicle is 5 years old

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I would like to know if I can return the vehicle and cancel the deal
