I purchased a car...

I purchased a car in September from a dealership and they called me yesterday saying the finance company they assigned the load to has decided they want the dealership to buy back the contract. So my questions is what is my legal rights to the car if my contract says the dealership is my creditor since they had not assigned the loan yet and all agreements are to the dealership it looks like im in az

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

2011 Chevy Tahoe in phoenix az I bought the car September 1st this is like the 3rd month we have had it

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

Of the car.... no its a used dealership that said they had financing for us until yesterday and the bank is wanting out of the deal so they dealership is having to buy back their contract from the bank

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

No i think that covers it

Ok thanks

Essentially my contract says that the dealer is my creditor and I want to make sure they can’t reposses my car bc of something between them and the bank

Response: The car cannot be repossessed if you are making payments as agreed. The dealership cannot penalize you for its issue with the bank.
