This was in Tennessee and I just had a bad feeling. Found out later this dealer has a bad past of selling vehicles that are junk. They never do a real check up of the vehicle they claim is in real good condition.

Thanks.

Do you live in TN and did you simply get up and walk out after signing the papers? Did you take the papers and how were you going to pay for the vehicle? Don't ever agree to buy something unless you're willing to follow through with the deal. When you have an offer, acceptance and consideration, you have an enforceable contract. Walking out before accepting delivery would in my opinion indicated anticipatory breach and cannot claim the deal was completed and the vehicle is yours. It may not hurt to at least consult with an attorney.
Bear in mind any response I make is not intended to be anything other than my educated opinion and should not be relied upon as legal advice. My response is based upon the limited facts provided on this forum.

Thanks, Bob

Then leave

How many times have I walked out on a deal when surprise, surprise, Oh they didn't tell you about that fee or this fee ? My take is until it's complete and you take possession, it's not a deal !

Baring a lawyer's advice - I wouldn't worry about it at all and now you KNOW what type of dealer they are !

what did you do to pissemoff ?

I took pictures of the dealer and have a date stamp on the picture after telling them I don't want the vehicle. They wouldn't sign a paper telling the deal is over. This teaches me never to buy a used vehicle from a used car lot in the state of Tennessee again. Need to buy it from a state that is consumer friendly. Tennessee must have million or more used car dealers on every street corner I have found. This is a state allows people to take two cars and make just one. Cut them in half and weld them together and it's legal.

i will defend tn as i live here,from mi a long time ago
all states allow you to assemble 1 car with parts from 2 or more ,they are titled as "salvage title" nothing wrong with the practice but a licensed dealer i believe has to disclose the fact we have lots of ethical bussiness' in tn and there are a lot of folks in mi with less than ethical motives it that way everywhere "buyer beware'

Don't worry about leaving the state. If they file suit, they will have to legally serve you. Tell folks you know not to be in a big hurry to tell inquirers where you are. Most likely, this will just go away.

Depending on the state you have 3 days, more or less, May have to notify in writing and may need to have that notice "Witnessed" in some way...

Expert in this I'm not, what the rules are in yoru state I do not knwo, I just read a lot.

The dealer will try every weasel trick he can, and may not wish to refund any deposit you made but ... You may be able to take care of that too.

The people to ask, And there are two here.. Your local DMV (they likely regulate auto dealers and service establishments) and of course since you are asking for legal advice (The above is not advice, it's information) a Lawyer.

I didn't think the 3 days cooling off period (solicited or unsolicited) applied to vehicles (whether motor vehicles or RV's). I checked it in Texas and the 3 day period applied to real estate but not vehicles. I had backed out of an RV purchase after leaving a deposit and some paperwork. Dealer was good about it and I got 2/3 my deposit back. He kept 1/3 due to already starting to prep the RV for delivery and wanting to cover his labor. I agreed as I felt i could have lost the whole deposit and some was better than nothing. I don't know about the law in other states.

But i question the unsolicited theory. If I but real estate I have 3 days and that would be an unsolicited transaction. i went to the realtor, s/he did not come to me.

So far no letter or call from the dealer. Went to dealer and saleman said no sell.

Thanks, Bob

See my link in post #17 above for clarification on the "cooling off" rule.

Second on the 3 days, this is fairly common but your millage may vary from state to state.

And some places require you notify in writing (Suggest the kind of mail where return reciept is requested) to back out.. Others just a phone call is enough.
