Unfortunately, no, there isn't. There is a common misconception that a person who buys a used car has three days to cancel the deal. Unfortunately, that is not the law in any state. Unless the contract itself provides a right to cancel, the contract is final the moment it's signed. The buyer doesn't have any right to cancel.

If the repairs were part of the written contract, and the dealer refuses to do it, then they can have the repairs done elsewhere and sue for breach of contract. But that breach wouldn't allow them to return the car and cancel the deal on their end.

As long as it's all spelled out in the contract, there isn't any way they can get out of it. There's no law that says that a person over a certain age isn't able to sign a contract. What that law does say is that a person who signs a contract is considered to have read, understood, and agreed to everything in it. Statements made that contradict the written contract are inadmissible. So, if the signed contract says 9%, he wouldn't even be able to introduce evidence that they talked about 6%. The only recourse is if there was actual fraud, which would mean that the dealer made affirmative, false material statements about the condition of the vehicle that induced your father into buying it, and that he wouldn't have bought it in the absence of those statements. That's hard to prove, though, because most of what a dealer says falls along the lines of, "What a great car!" or "You'll be really happy in this one!" and the law calls that "puffing," which is not actionable.
