The weather here in Southeast Texas has been rainy and a bit dreary for the past several days. Clouds overhead are gray and threatening, and we’ve had a good bit of rain. The inclement weather has kept folks from doing much of what they love. Getting fishing gear ready, travel trailers roadworthy, boats checked, lawns trimmed and manicured for spring viewing, some outside painting, and work in colorful flowerbeds has been put on hold.

Q. I hope you can assist me with this problem. I purchased a car from a dealer that purchases vehicles from auctions for re-sale. The vehicle was purchased under a contract that said it was “as is” and did not come with a warranty. It has been two days since the date of purchase, and this vehicle now has major problems. What are my rights as a consumer wanting to return this vehicle and get a refund? Don’t I have three days to change my mind?
