YES.. check state laws. Texas has a "buyer's remorse" clause on any signed contract, with a corporation, or incorporated business. Private sales must be taken through civil court if there is to be anything changed, but the buyer's remorse clause can be enforced with dealerships.

you MAY be liable for milage penalties, or restocking fees, but you can get out of the car, if your state laws allow, as ours do.

Used car purchases require due dillegence in inspecting the vehicle, and the old saying 'buyer beware' applies.




And for what's already been said, didn't you test drive it? Sounds to me like you just learned a costly lesson unless the dealer really wants to bend over backward for you. Course if they're willing to do that, the little things would probably have been already fixed for you or anyone who else bought the car.

I second that...as I have fallen victim to this. But i still bought the car even after the fuel pump went out on my test drive...oh well.....you can't blame anybody but yourself. but good luck in whatever you choose to do!!!

when my husband and I bought our SVT last April, exactly a week later we have major problems with the clutch. We took it back to the dealer (a large, promiment chevy dealer) and they agreed to pay for the repairs (a new clutch/transmission fluid etc). It was (obviously) a used car, and no warranty, but the dealer paid anyway. It doesn't hurt to at least go back and ask.
