I purchased a used car (2012 Ford Mustang V6) from a local dealer on January 25th and during our conversation about the car he stated that it does have the Performance Package and whats included in that package are 19" wheels, brembo brakes, engine strut, different gears in the rear, upgraded suspension, and a few other bits. During the time when I was shopping for the car I didn't know it came with all of those additions but I did know that it included 19" wheels, which the car does have, but they are not the exact wheels that come with the performance package from Ford. Can I do anything about this? They specifically told me it had the performance package on it when it in fact does not. What are my options here? I've already put about 1k in upgrades in the car so I'd rather keep the car but if I absolutely have to give it back then that's how it has to be.
This is likely a Fla. Stat. 501.976 type case at best or a fraud in the inducement type case at worst. Regardless these are typically cases where you will pay a lawyer up front for the legal work and try to recover the legal fees later. You will have to decide whether its worth that effort. In the future - make sure the paperwork support the trim level and or any representations as to the important add ons.
