Good evening. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Can you share with me how your mother was influenced? How did she get to the dealer? Did someone not go with her? Also, if she could only afford $300 per month, do you know why she signed and agreed to pay more?

She was influence by not acknowledging her of what she is signing, what the payment is,and she did go by herself,She drove herself to the dealer.

Thank you for the additional information. With her signature on the contract, there is a presumption that she read it, understood it and agreed to the terms and conditions stated within. If that was not the case and she was forced into signing it, tricked, mislead or not of sound mind when doing so, the burden would be on her to show this happened at the time and they took advantage of her. She would need to present evidence to support her claim, if they will not let her out of the contract and she is forced to file suit. If she only had a budget of $300 and the cost for the car was greater then that, she should not have signed. As I shared above, her signature on the contract, reflect she say the price and agreed to it. In Florida, there is no 3 day cooling off period when buying a car at a dealership. Once she signed and drove the car off the lot, it belonged to her. If they will not take it back, then she needs to sue them for relief.
