JB Umphrey :

Thank you for using JustAnswer!

JB Umphrey :

Do you have your contract in front of you right now?

JACUSTOMER-gwqsupmb- : No I'm at the hospital with my wife
JB Umphrey :

I see. Hope everything is okay.

JACUSTOMER-gwqsupmb- : Yes thanks just test
JB Umphrey :

As a general matter, when you buy a truck, you're stuck with the contract. There's no window to get out of it -- unless they included such a clause in the contract. Those usually don't exist.

JB Umphrey :

Separately, I don't understand these places who allow you to drive off the lot with the vehicle without the financing being in place.

JACUSTOMER-gwqsupmb- : Ok but can they just take all the time they want to get it financed? There is no time limit
JB Umphrey :

There is, of course, nothing to prevent you from finding a lender to finance your purchase.

JB Umphrey :

I am going to assume that you are making payments to them until a different lender is located.

JB Umphrey :

If there's no time limit listed in the contract, then, yes, they can take however long they want.

JB Umphrey :

As the saying goes, the devil is in the details.

JACUSTOMER-gwqsupmb- : Ok so they can take as long as they want
JB Umphrey :

In this case, the details are in the actual written agreement.

JB Umphrey :

The extended delay would suggest to me that they are having a problem finding a lender for you.

JACUSTOMER-gwqsupmb- : Ok thanks ill have to look over the contract
JB Umphrey :

Good luck and best wishes!

JB Umphrey :
