Can i build a case against this car dealership? and if i do, how much power do i have in this situation, can money be retrieved? I Financed a 2013 dodge ram HEMI 5.7 Liter in January 2014 and earlier this month i came to find out after inspecting my truck that it was equipped with a 4.7L engine and the sales person gave me wrong information to trick me into buying it, I couldn't find it on the papers saying its a 4.7 or 5.7 but i decoded the VIN number and it revealed that its indeed a 4.7. I am not saying they sold it as a 5.7Liter engine, I'm just making clear they false advertised and tricked me into thinking it had a HEMI motor. The Car Dealership stuck on a logo for false advertising to get me into buying it. The HEMI motor is known to be a very strong motor and i honestly was sold when i heard about, i currently pay each month for this financed truck and i am not happy with the fact that its 4.7 liter. I forgot to mention that on the truck till today it has a HEMI 5.7L chrome logo placed on the truck since I bought it from them. I also have video and sound proof of the same sales person that sold me that truck saying its a HEMI Engine 5.7. is this considered a violation of the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act?
