Can a bank revoke the loan 3 weeks after I signed the contract? If dealership is listed as creditor are they reliable?

Asked over 1 year ago - Waukegan, IL

I signed contracts for the purchase of a car 3 weeks ago. On they contract the dealership is listed as a creditor. They are telling me today that the bank has revoked the loan and now they want me to come and sign a different contract with a higher A.P.R and monthly payment. I know I should have read before signing but now looking at the papers I see they also tact on a $2000.00 extended warranty that was never discussed.
