Philadelphia, PA asked in Consumer Law for Pennsylvania

Q: What can I do if I took a possession of a car in PA and didn't realize until morning that the interior color was wrong?

Full story, I went to the Toyota dealer with my sights set on a Toyota C-HR limited model. The dealer did not have one available so I test drove the XLE, which is one grade below the limited but the same engine. The salesman tried to sell me on the XLE but I told him no way. I wanted the navigation and the leather seats that are only available in the limited model. I told him if he had a limited in white, black or red I would buy it today but it had to have a black interior not brown which was an option. He said he could do a dealer trade for me and asked me for a $500 deposit which I gave him and he asked me to fill out a credit application which I did.

A: Try to unwind it. If they won't contact Toyota USA --you want a Toyota, just not that one. However, as you had a chance to sit in it etc. you may be stuck as you could have walked but didn't, had a chance to look at it but didn't get in a good light.
