Can I take the car back to the dealer and walk away after a three-day test drive?

Is it possible to return a car after three days? A local car dealer offers a three-day test drive before you buy. I took full advantage of this and I decided that I didn't like the car. I haven't signed anything, but I wasn't sure if I could take the car back.

“If you didn’t sign anything, you should be able to take the new car back without a problem.
Still, you probably signed something regarding the three-day test drive, so make sure you look over that contract before you take the car back.
In most cases, the dealer will be disappointed, but that’s as far as it will go.”
