I purchased this new vehicle on 8/31/20. On 9/1/20 I received emails from Toyota, and realized I was deceived and conned into purchasing packages I told the finance guy upfront I didn't want. The same day I discovered the vehicle was infested with ants. I tried to get answers about the deception but was passed along and eventually told I was not charged for any additional packages, and there is no exchange for the vehicle. I picked it up on 9/14/20 but no longer want the vehicle. I'm to begin payments in 1 week but I no longer communicate with the dealership so I want to sale or trade to Carmax or Enterprise ASAP. I feel defeated, stupid and confused about how to get rid of it and anxious about going through the process again. My question is: I have not started payments so am I responsible for just the loan amount or the loan plus the ARP for the full term of the loan. These are the numbers. Loan: $28,467.89 Term: 75 months APR: 5.4% Carmax Trade Appraisal: $25,000 Enterprise: $26,000 Seeking a vehicle between $11,500 - $15,000 Thank you so much.
