I bought a used car late Friday evening in South Carolina at a new car dealership; can I return it on Monday?
Details: By the time I return it I will have put no more than 25 miles on it. The car has been garaged since I picked it up, and has not been damaged in any way. The payment instrument was an "up to this amount" draft against a preapproved loan from my credit union that was not enough to cover the price. The dealership would not take a personal check for the difference. The understanding was that I would return with the difference in cerrtifiied check on Monday. Other than that the deal was complete; I left with temp tags and all affects of the car (owners manual, keys, etc).
I'm looking to exercise the 72 hour contract cancelation option I've heard of all my life (I'm not sure if such a thing really exists); but in lieu of that I'm askng if the sale is actually finalized since the deal is not completely funded. My thought is that if I get the car there early Monday (or even late Sunday since they are closed) then none of the DMV paperwork will be done or submtted and I can reduce the dealer's pain and there inclination to rebut.
