I purchased a vehicle and I put $1,000 down payment I have paper work that proves that with the salesman and my signature on it plus receipt. The paperwork went to his manager who wrote it up that I would put $2,000 down on the vehicle (I never said I would and my salesman agreed I didn’t say that) the manager gave the paper work back to the salesman who even said heres the loan payment of $19,000with your 1,000 down I signed and left with my vehicle. I looked at the paperwork and my loan was for 19,000 with the $1,000 down, but also on the one paperwork with the $2,000 down payment the loan was still for 19,000 the dealership says I still owe them $1,000 dollars but the loan would be for less then 19,000 if I put another 1,000 down and why would they have let me leave owing $1,000 dollars?
You should really take the paperwork to a local attorney, one who specializes in contract law to review because what you signed would be a contract. Without seeing all the paperwork, it would be hard to give you an answer. If all they are looking for is the money, that is something you can fight in court, but if they are threatening to repossess the car if yo don't pay the extra $1,000, then you may not have the chance to fight in court. because they will take the car first and it is important to read the paperwork carefully to find out what their/your rights are.
