Customer Question
Hello, so I bought...

Hello, so I bought a used truck at a Honda dealer like 35 days ago, and now they are rescinding the contract and want me to return the truck. Is it legal for them to do this? I thought they had 10 days to ask for the car back

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? And is a local attorney or other consumer protection advocate helping with this?

Not at the moment, I'm in Southern California

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

So far you are the 1st I've asked

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

That's about it

You are correct. In CA, if the dealer cannot assign your loan to a bank, the dealer must be your bank. This does not mean that you must return the vehicle to them. The sale is final and the dealer must finance you for the vehicle and accept payments.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
