What if I change my mind?

There is no "cooling off period" once you have signed the contract. This means that you will not be able to cancel just because you changed your mind or because your situation has changed.

But in some situations, you do have the right to cancel the contract. You can cancel at any time within 90 days after you receive the vehicle if the dealer did not tell you:

  • the total mileage
  • the make, model, or year
  • that the vehicle was used as a daily rental, police cruiser, emergency services vehicle, taxi, or limousine
  • that the vehicle ever qualified as irreparable, salvage, or rebuilt
