Forget it.

 

It's a done deal. You won't get anywhere voicing your concerns to the dealer.

 

They probably threw a party for the guy who sold you a $10,000 car for $17,000.

While I realize cars are pretty advanced these days, I don't think it's reasonable to expect a car to do your homework.

Of course not.  That you made what you now consider to be a bad deal isn't a reason to undo the deal.  Next time, do your research before you buy.

 

Let me ask you a question:  Let's say that you went to the grocery store and found some item that you weren't familiar with but you wanted to try it out.  Let's say the item was priced at $10.  You get home, cook it, eat it, enjoy it, and share what you made with a friend.  In the process of doing so, you point out that you bought the item and paid $10 for it, and your friend tells you that you can buy the same item at a different store for $5.  Do you think you ought to get a refund?  Alternatively, what if I offered to sell you a particular piece of property for $500k.  I make no false representations about anything and answer all of your questions truthfully, to the best of my knowledge.  You buy it without researching the value of the property.  After closing, you find that the property appraises for $300k.  Do you think you ought to get a refund?  You don't get refunds or to undo bad deals just because you failed to do your research before buying.

 

Also, and this is important, just because KBB says something doesn't necessarily mean you can find X-car for $Z.  KBB is not the be all and end all of things.

I have no idea what you mean by "formal complaint," but you're free to complaint to whomever you like.

Hi @conn61

 

Thanks for posting! So sorry to hear that your car purchase didn't turn out as you had hoped. Sometimes there are "cooling off' periods, and it might be possible for you to get out of your sale, however, often that period is quite brief and it may now be too late. We have some helpful resources on this topic that you may want to check out:

 

Best of luck!
