Can you return a car in Ohio?

I’m from Dayton, and I’ve been considering going to a dealership to take a look at the 2022 Toyota Prius (which I’ve been eyeing for a while). I’m worried I’m going to get backed into buying one before I’m ready, though. Can you return a car in Ohio?

You cannot return a car in
under almost any circumstance. The same is true for most states in the U.S.
While there is a federal cooling-off rule that allows buyers certain timeframes to change their minds after other large purchases, vehicles are explicitly excluded from this law.
Here are the very limited circumstances that may enable you to undo or void a vehicle transaction:
  • The vehicle suffers mechanical issues and qualifies as a lemon under Ohio’s
    lemon law
  • The sale contract was not signed
  • A grace period was arranged in writing with the dealership or selling party
Before you head to the Dayton dealership, make sure you arm yourself with knowledge. Choose the
Toyota Prius
you’re interested in ahead of time, and set solid limits on your budget and the features you don’t want, as well.
