We purchased a car last Saturday. We had a True Car

Customer Question
We purchased a car...

We purchased a car last Saturday. We had a True Car certificate. The dealer told that they would honor. We actually bought the same vehicle on the True Car certificate (same vin number). Thinking we were getting that price, because that is what were told, we signed the deal. They overcharged us 1,158.62. They also have several items on the sticker that were supposed to be included. We did not get them. Can we do anything?

Lawyer's Assistant: OK. The Consumer Protection Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?

Not yet...I will be though I think.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is there anything else the Consumer Protection Lawyer should be aware of?

I have all of the paperwork. The sales manager wants us to come in tomorrow so we can go over the paperwork together, but I have already gone over it with the girl in the office who agrees that I was overcharged and I know that I will not just a check handed over to me.
