The Office de la protection du consommateur recommends that you avoid signing any documents until you have decided to purchase a particular vehicle. Contrary to popular belief, you do not have the right to cancel a contract if you change your mind within 10 days.

If merchants claim that your signature does not bind you to any commitment, you can ask them to write "no commitment from the consumer" on the document you are signing.

The Office encourages you to find out more about cancellation terms on used vehicle purchases.
