Bought a vehicle from a dealership, when it was time for me to drive off with it they told me something was wrong with the battery, to pick it up the next morning. That night I did research on the car and found out a auction had reported it was crashed, which doesn’t show up on carfax but shows up on auto check. They refuse to give me my money back because I signed papers, but I say those papers are voided because the car isn’t what they said it was and I never drove it off the lot.
Whether you can bring a claim depends on a few factors. I hope you didn't sign an "AS IS" agreement (the most unwise thing you can do in a car purchase), as that would create a defense for the dealer - though not always an insurmountable defense. Important would be the exact words conveyed regarding your assertion that "the car isn’t what they said it was." And if those words support your position, the communication should be confirmed in writing ASAP. Seek an in-person consultation with an attorney.
