Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
My apologies but an unfair price is not a legitimate basis to get out of a contact. If a car is valued at $5,000 but someone wishes to buy it for $10,000, it is not a violation under law. Grounds to get out of a contract typically relate to fraud or misrepresentation. Examples may be not disclosing that the vehicle was in a car accident and has a reconstructed title, or if it was told to have options and features that it did not possess. But a price, by itself, is not valid to get out from the contract.
I must ask--how did you end up purchasing this vehicle for such an inflated price, what happened?
