Three-Day Rule for Purchases

Statutes: (Additional statutes, regulations & opinions may apply to your specific situation.)


  • The Office of the Minnesota Attorney General, Cooling-Off Periods (Contracts).
  • The Office of the Minnesota Attorney General, Consumer Complaints. The Consumer Protection Division takes  on a variety of consumer concerns. Their Minnesota Car Laws page contains the following language: "Did you know that there is no three day "cooling-off" law when you buy a car? Once you sign the contract, the car is yours. You can't return the vehicle if you decide that you don't want it or can't afford it."  

DISCLAIMER:  As librarians and not lawyers, we can suggest resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file), or legal opinions, (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts.)  To do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law.  Even though we try to suggest materials that will be of help, further research is usually required to find a complete and correct answer.  For many questions, the best answer may be to consult an attorney.  For links to resources on finding an attorney click here.
