When I purchased my 2010, the dealer put the wrong year on the contract. I never noticed...
Days after delivery, they wanted me to come back and resign proper papers, as the bank refused to accept the paperwork.
I signed, but I wondered what would have happened had I refused to sign... I guess I could have consulted with a lawyer before signing. Bottom line was, I made and agreed to the deal, which was the same in the new paperwork...
Would have been interesting to see how that could have played out. My dislike of drama in my life negated the curiosity in me.
i bought an 86 Mazda pickup... they had a bunch of them on the lot that were identical.
bought it on Saturday and picked the brown one, and the salesman was so anxious to sell it, the computer was down so he let me drive it home and i went back in on Monday to finish the paperwork. but when i got it home it looked to low on the left side.. measure it and it was 1inch low. so when i went back in on monday after work, the salesman came out all happy and said something like "ok.. ready to sign the papers?".. i said 'nope, don't think i want it".. the salesman crapped in his pants. i ended up getting a different one, signed the papers on that one. but then they had a new one with a few hundred miles on it. got the new pickup home, measured it.. same thing was an inch low. turns out they use a torsion bar front suspension... and they had not been dealer prepped. i cranked a little on the bolt under the car and it leveled right out. i went back the next day to tell the salesman it was an easy fix on the one i didn't want.. they had already fired the salesman.
dealers are such goof balls.

If the second story is correct in the facts, I wouldn't want to settle for a free Corvette. False charges alleged, arrested in front of your family and neighbors, harassed at work. This can actually take quite a toll on someone emotionally, whether people realize it or not. This went on for quite some time before culminating in the arrest.
He signed a second contract for the second car. The sales manager screwed up and tried to cover his own behind, at the expense of the buyer. Alleging you stole a car and sending the police out is a rather extreme measure, especially if you are in the wrong legally.
