Hello, and welcome. I am a licensed attorney and happy to assist.
I'm sorry to hear of the trouble you had with this dealership, but happy to say that you do have recourse. Under the circumstances, you can return the car for a full refund. In the event the dealership gives you any trouble about this, you can sue for breach of contract to have a court order the dealership to refund your money because you did not get what you bargained for. In the event the dealership misrepresented the car they sold to you, which it already sounds like was the case, you can also sue for misrepresentation and fraud. If successful, the dealer would be ordered to pay you three time The amount you initially paid for the car, as punitive damages to punish the dealer and deter future misconduct.
I hope this helps. If you need additional information or clarification, just let me know and I will continue to provide assistance. If I have addressed your issue and/or pointed you in a positive direction, please remember to leave a positive rating when prompted, as that is how attorneys on this site are credited for the help we provide.
