It is difficult because you have to show undue duress or fraud. However, I have had about 50/50 success rate in taking the facts when I have good facts to work with and doing a demand letter to the dealer advising him that absent an amicable resolution, he would be sued for fraud, negligent misrepresentation, and perhaps even under Florida's Unfair & Deceptive Trade Practices Act. You should certainly contact an attorney in your area or my office if you would like to discuss your facts in more detail.
