Your contract when you bought the vehicle should have the VIN (vehicle identification number) on the contract. You can compare the VIN on the contract with the VIN on your vehicle. That is the first step. If they deliberately misled you on which car you were purchasing there could be a case for fraud.

Maybe. The issue is what truck were you negotiating the purchase of? Its not whether you accidently got a better vehicle or higher trim by accident and want the winfall of that simply because you were handed the keys to the wrong vehicle. In contrast if you have the right vehicle and they did the wrong paperwork - the remedy is to undo the deal and do the right paperwork OR to undo the deal based on mutual mistake and start all over again.
