Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs, and I look forward to assisting you.
Every contract to sell a car, unless otherwise specified, carries the implied warranty to convey the car with clear title. If the dealer has not done so then you can sue them for breach of contract.
Since the sale price probably exceeds $4000 you will not be able to sue in small claims court and it is recommended you retain an attorney to represent you in court. If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys). Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:

You should also file a consumer complaint with the Kansas Attorney General's Office: Consumer Complaint
