My daughter and I purchased a car from Honda, her credit wasn't good so my name was on the docs. The deal was completed, we traded in a car and drove off with the new one. Now Honda is calling us telling us that my daughters credit wasn't good enough and they want to redo the process. What are my rights.

They should have figured that out way before you were able to drive off with the new car. That being said, there is usually a statement in the paperwork (you signed and agreed to) saying that you must return if paperwork needs to be corrected. This is state by state so it may be different where you are. The fact is they may be trying to put the car only in your name now. If you are not prepared to do that, I would figure out a way to give it back. It sounds like planned/ crooked business

some dealerships are doing this, so the salesmen complete deals, (make sale numbers), then call you back to amend "over looked details", the outcome is, SHOULD be to return the car sadly, and begin again. If you are a co-signer your name is on the paper work as well BUT HERS IS TOO!!!, you can go back and forth for best legal advice consult a lawyer, DO NOT TRUST THE DEALERSHIP!!!!, or agree to the higher interest fee they will try to put on it. They won't offer a loaner (trying to convince you to their terms), personally I would consult a lawyer, and ask, every state is different,


You may just be in the wrong forum. If I were in your shoes I would talk to an attorney.

Tell the Dealer to go piss up a rope. If you got home and, say, didn't like the interest, too high, and you want to 'amend' it, how do you think they would react? They would be polite until you are gone, then laugh their asses off, the salesman's signature is on that contract too ya know and he/she is an authorized agent for the dealer..maybe he is in trouble with his boss, too bad.
