Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you. I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you and I hope to provide you information which is accurate and useful, even though it may not be the news you were hoping to get.

Unfortunately, in the absence of a provision to the contrary in the contract, there is no general legal obligation that a car dealer cancel a transaction after the buyer pays for a car and takes it off the lot.

In other words, it is your car now.

That is not to say the dealer can not agree to an exchange or a new sale, but it is a NEW transaction, not a continuation of the original.

I realize this is probably not the answer you were hoping to receive. Also, please remember that this is not a moral judgement on my part. As a professional, however, I am sometimes placed in the position of having to deliver news which is not favorable to a customer's legal position, but accurately reflects their position under the law. I hate it, but it happens and I only ask that you not penalize me with a bad or poor rating for having to deliver less than favorable news.
