Did you sign any paperwork acknowledging that it was a salvage title before taking the car? Who is the dealer? Did you finance the car or pay cash? You may have a claim against the dealer.

Much of this will depend on the seller - was it a private person or a dealer? Also, did you actually see the paper title before you bought the car. If so, the salvage brand would have been prominently displayed for you to see.
You possibly have a claim for fraud, the remedy of which is to undo the deal. You might also have a claim for breach of warranty of title. You should contact a local attorney who handle automobile fraud.
Also, you should file a complaint with your state's Attorney General.
