Protect yourself. Read these important car-buying tips before you sign!
All shoppers know the checkout drill, you hand over your money, your goods are packaged and then the cashier tells you by rote, “You have 10 days to return or exchange, as long as you have the receipt.” You nod--you probably won’t return your purchase, but it’s nice to know that you could. You walk out the door, and live your life.

a. A 24 hour cooling-off period
b. A 48 hour cooling-off period
c. A 10 day cooling-off period
d. No cooling-off period
