    Hi,
    We purchased a vehicle for my son with 4,000.00 down and financed the remaining balance of the car. We have made one payment on the car. We received a call from the dealership asking us to return the car and they will pay off the loan because they do not have a title to the car. I asked to be made whole and have a comparable car and retain my deposit. This was blatant breach of contract. What recourse do I have?

    By getting everything paid back to you, you are made whole.

    All your entitled to is your money back and cancellation of the loan. If you want a comparable car after that, go buy one.

    You either work something out with the dealer or sue for breach of contract, but you should be aware that returning your down payment and cancelling or paying the loan in full will make you whole.
