Buying, Selling, or Leasing a Vehicle

Buying a New Car

What if I want to add something after I sign the contract?

Ask the dealer to write a contract addendum (a supplement), or write it yourself. Both parties should sign it. Make sure that whoever signs for the seller has the legal power to do so. Mention the original contract in the addendum, state that everyone should consider it an inseparable part of the original contract and that the addendum overrides any inconsistent terms in the two documents.
