Re: cancelling a contract

The sale and the financing for the sale are generally separate matters. Look for a financing contingency clause in the contract of sale. That will tell you a lot.

I would be surprised if you could return the car. It sounds as if there is a completed sale and only the financing remains as an open issue. That could leave you with an obligation and no means to finance it.

If you have any doubt, you should collect all the paperwork and get a lawyer to look at it.

Re: cancelling a contract

This will largely depend on the nature of the contract; what it says. If there is a contingencty or clause. However, if the deal is consumated, then it is unlikely. You may want to contactthe dealership first, but they are not going to want to take back your "used" vehicle. You should seek an attorney to review this immediately, however it is likely to be money that is not well spent unless there is a specific clause allowing for this, or the deal has not been consumated, which is unlikely since you have the car.
