Hello. My name is***** am a US licensed attorney and I will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice / legal service you should contact your local attorney.

Generally, similar situation would be considered to be a civil matter / dispute.

Unfortunately, generally if the local court had ruled in favor of the dealer, then the only legal option would be to file a formal complaint against the dealer with California Attorney General Office and also with the local Better Business Bureau.

I wish you the best of luck!
