This will depend on whether you have a binding contract for the purchase of the new car with the trade in and all other details. If that is the case you may be able to enforce the sale price. If you are still negotiating then, the deal may fall apart and not be completed.

Sometimes contractual mistakes may be corrected however, by an application to court. So it will depend on the state of negotiations and what steps they take.
