I purchased a new vehicle from darcars. I paid them 26,500.00. I owe 1,000.00 more. My temporary tags are about to expire in days and they have my hard tags but said they are not releasing them without full payment and they are going to send me to collections. . None of my paperwork even says the vehicle is 27,500.00 I asked them for the cash price. They gave me paperwork with all these discounts was suppose to get but it doesn't show that I paid 26,500.00. I have proof of all payments that was made. I gave them a check for 25,000.00 and I paid them 1,500.00 in cash. They charged me 300.00 for administrative fees but online it says their fee is 99.00.

It seems to me you have a number of fact issues. An undocumented $1,500.00 payment (unless you have a cash receipt), and a fee of $300.00 instead of $99.00.
I do believe, however, they cannot withhold the tags. Tags are the property of the state that issues them, or if it was in D.C., the District of Columbia.
Therefore, the withholding of the tags may be in violation of the law. I would suggest you contact DMV and advise them that the tags were lost or stolen, name the dealer, and request new tags be issued and delivered directly to you.
If that does not work, click on "Find a Lawyer" above and start searching for a consumer protection lawyer. Its very likely there is a violation of the unfair and deceptive trade practices law, or a related statute governing false or misleading advertising.
