It varies by State. Some have a 'cooling off' period, some not. Google search "auto purchase cooling off period (Your State)

If you didn't pick up the car yet, and pay the final bill, I'd ask for my down money back. They will be disappointed and try to sell you another car then, but they should return the money to you. You might have to bug them a few times , and expect to wait around a month for it. At least that is what the one dealership did to me when I did the same thing.

You posted to an answer from 2 years ago. I happened on this by luck. I'll try to help, but once you purchase a car, it's yours and most dealers will not just swap them out or return your money. I suggest you have them repair the car to get it running, then keep it or sell it on your own. I always recommend, having a vehicle you like looked at by a mechanic before purchasing, so you know if it won't be having an issue right away. Good Luck!


Purchased a car a month ago and now can't afford it what I need to do ?
