  • "Cooling Off" Period MYTH: You have the right to cancel any purchase within three days. FACT: Contrary to popular belief, the three-day Cooling-off Rule (right to cancel) applies to only a limited number of cash or credit transactions of $25 or more. The Rule applies to door-to-door sales or other places other than at the company's regular place of business. Purchases of automobiles and other vehicles are not usually covered. Buying a used Car CLOSING THE DEAL Before signing a contract or purchasing a used car, you should do the following: Take your time to read and understand the entire written agreement. Ask questions. Don't sign unless you are satisfied with the answers. Be sure that all blank spaces are filled in, that all of the salesperson's verbal promises are included, and that the type of warranty that comes with the car is spelled out. If you are required to make a deposit, ask whether it is refundable, and under what circumstances, and make sure the information is also included in the contract. Be sure to get a signed statement verifying the mileage at the time of sale. Most state laws require dealers of used cars to provide the buyer with this information in writing. Know your state's requirements concerning emissions inspections; certified state auto inspections; child safety, seat belt, and airbag requirements; and title transfers. Buying a used vehicle can be a rewarding experience but always remember, "when in doubt, check it out!" QUICK CHECK LIST Before purchasing any used car, be aware of the following: Inspect the car in daylight and good weather. Bring someone you trust along to help you make a thorough appraisal; Don't expect perfection in a used car. Compromise on minor problems you can fix yourself, but don't overlook serious defects; Make safety a major priority. Older vehicles may not be equipped with airbags, child safety seats, seat belts, anti-lock brakes or security systems. Determine your locality's vehicle safety requirements for cars, mini-vans, recreational and sport-utility vehicles and other vehicles before you buy; Road test before you commit to buy. If you are not allowed to test drive the car, do not buy it. Have a Trusted Mechanic Thoroughly inspect the car before you purchase it.
