I was wondering if it is even valid?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
There are alot of errors on the contract, I live in the state of Florida. The social security number was put in correctly, and there were different odometer numbers and also different cash value and financed value.
Consumer Protection Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Thank you for your reply.
While a contract may have errors, such as your SSN, it can still be valid and a mistake on the odometer meeting, these can be corrected and the contract would still be valid. However, if the contract price in the contract is different than what you agreed upon, you can seek to invalidate the contract based on there being no meeting of the minds, meaning that the contract was not what you agreed upon.
SO, you need to try to first resolve this with the dealer to get the contract price corrected, along with the other errors. If the dealer refuses, you would have to sue for breaching the contract, based on there being no meeting of the minds in the contract price and the price you had agreed upon when making the deal and you would have to get the court to invalidate the contract on that basis.

Do I have the right to return the car back to them?
Consumer Protection Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Lawyer replied 2 years ago
Thank you for your reply.
You would not have the right to return the car unless they agree to cancel the contract or if you sue for breach of contract as I said above and you get the court to void the contract based on no meeting of the minds.
