Olivette, MO asked in Contracts for Missouri

Q: I just purchased a car, contract had NO COOLING OFF PERIOD clause. State law doesn't provide for cooling off period.

By the time I drove it home the oil light came on and then the check engine light came on. It was a Cam position sensor code and there was no oil showing on the dipstick. Will I be able to cancel this contract since it's not me just changing my mind?

A: It is you changing your mind on account of problems with the vehicle. If you are able to prove that the seller know of problems and made a misrepresentation to you, then an attorney might be able to help you. The challenge in these situations is proving what the seller knew.
