Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, under NY law, when a party signs a contract they are held liable for having read the contract, understood it and agreed to its terms. Once you signed the contract I am afraid that was your agreement to the price being charged. Your only recourse in this type of situation is calling the dealer and complaining to them, but in a court it would come down to being your fault for signing the document and for "not paying attention when signing the contract," which is your duty.
