The delivery date should be the actual date of delivery- some dealers will allow a consumer to take the vehicle home before the financing is complete- this is called a "yoyo sale" which has issues of its own.
Most importantly, was there a buyer's guide, and if so does it say "as is"; were any warranties purchased? lastly were there any representations made about the car's condition?
It would depend. For example, one can sue for breach of contract if one of the parties breaches one of the provisions of the contract. However, in order to void the contract, it must be a material breach-going to the very heart of the matter. Delivery issues generally just result in economic damages- for example, in the event of the delivery causing economic damages (requiring the use of a rental car until the car is delivered).
If however, a dealer makes misrepresentations that go to the condition of the car, the dealer can be sued for misrepresentation. Additionally, a complaint can be filed against the dealer, which can result in the supsension/revocation of the dealer's license.
