How will I be affected if i return a car to the dealership if I own a home and lost my job?

Rancho Mirage, CA |

I wanted to see what my options where for owning a leased vehicle that was over the mileage quota. The salesperson talked me into making a purchase instead. Now I cannot afford the payment and I put myself in a worse situation than if I had just kept the leased car. I haven't made the first payment on the new car yet. If I return the car to the dealership, what will happen to me?

Also, many banks denied the loan request and finally the dealership accepted the loan.

If you had returned the car with over mileage, the dealership may have come after you for mileage charges. Now taht you have purchased the vehicle, if you return it the dealer may come after you for breach of the purchase agreement. Look over your agreement to see if there was a cool off period that would allow you to return the car without any penalty. Otherwise, you may need to speak with them and see if they would be willing to somehow work out the situation. You should consult your own lawyer to protect your legal rights.
