Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Expert:  Debra replied 11 months ago.

I am sorry you are in this difficult situation.

Why don't you want to take the car now?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Because it is too expensive considering my current financial situation. the should have costed me no more than 24,000 but the price has balooned to 32,000 before interest.
Expert:  Debra replied 11 months ago.

So could you say that you were mis-represented as to what the cost was going to be?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Kind of really. I just don't want that vehicle at that price. I gave them a 1000 dollar deposit and I don't mind losing it so they could recoup their transportation costs. Like I have said though the car is not registered under my name or the bank as a lien holder. Nor do I have possession of the vehicle. This is in Alberta province.
Expert:  Debra replied 11 months ago.

But there is no cooling off period for buying a car in Alberta. So when you entered into the agreement to buy the car it was a binding legal contract and you cannot change your mind.

At the same time courts have set aside contracts where they don't reflect what was actually agreed to so if you agreed on one price and then at the last minute they changed it and you didn't realize that, then you could get out of the contract.

Do you see what I mean?
