Buying or leasing a used vehicle
What if I was misled or pressured into getting the vehicle?
Dealers are not allowed to use "unfair practices" to convince you to buy or lease a vehicle. Unfair practices include making false, misleading, or deceptive statements. For example, dealers must not:
- tell you that the vehicle is of better quality than it really is,
- tell you that the vehicle is only available for a limited time if that is not true, or
- tell you that you are getting a special price or benefit when they are really offering the same thing that you can get somewhere else.
Unfair practices also include:
- taking advantage of any language difficulty or physical, mental, or emotional disability that you may have,
- charging far more than what is reasonable for the vehicle, or
- pressuring you to buy a vehicle that they know you cannot afford.
If the dealer used any unfair practice, you can cancel at any time within one year after you signed the contract.
