Eagle Mountain, UT asked in Contracts and Consumer Law for Utah

Q: Can I cancel an extended warranty on a used car I purchased six days ago?

I feel I was sold this service contract under time pressure, and after further research and considering the situation, I feel I don't need it, don't want it, and I cannot afford it. The service contract (extended warranty) was brought up only during the final signing of the paperwork, and we had had no opportunity to consider it thoroughly and make the best decision for us. I was under time pressure to sign everything in time to get the credit union to issue the check before the long Labor Day weekend. All my research online has indicated that yes, I can indeed cancel this, but to expect the dealer to try and make me think I can't do it, and that's exactly what they're doing, giving me the runaround. What are my rights on this?

A: I can't speak generally about these types of agreements, I would have to read the contract to give you a good answer. The terms of the extended warranty agreement will be in there. Look for the clauses that talk about termination of the agreement.

Sorry, I can't be more help.
