Rep: 10 alex3909 is on a distinguished road
Default I got a question. Please.

I recently went to a car dealership and signed paperwork with a down payment of 500$ for a 2011 Chevy Equinox. I test drove it nothing was wrong it was ok. When I went home I did what the internet is used for I went and looked at reviews of peoples experiences. Many people have been saying that the Equinox is actually a terrible car because when idling it loses all power and just a generally bad car. My question is after I signed the paperwork (paying full in cash but haven't given them the cash or transferred the funds from my bank not financing) am I able to back out of the purchase? The back of my agreement states that if I refuse to take delivery on the car after 7 days I gotta pay fees but they're undisclosed fees. They are closed today so I will call and talk about it with them tomorrow but I came to the forum to ask the experts (hopefully people on this forum) what I can do? They are giving me new plates, do emissions / safety blah blah blah but I don't want it anymore can I back out? Thanks please answer. If it helps I am in Ontario Canada so I don't know the laws on this.

In B.C., if a signed contract does not specify otherwise, you are only at risk of loosing your deposit. If the contract has any mention of fees it should also stat what those fees are.

Equinox isn't a terrible car. They made hundreds of thousands of them. You're fine. You can find problems about every car ever made if you look on the internet.
