How long does an auto dealer have to correct a price listing error once it is brought to their attention?

It is unlikely that such a significant discrepancy between advertised price and MSRP will confuse many consumers. Most consumers have a general idea what a car is worth and with today's prevalence of free resources to determine exact value, it is unlikely to be considered as a "bait and switch."
Additionally, many businesses outsource internet systems management to third-party companies. It is possible that they do not directly control the listings but have notified the appropriate manager. Sometimes these things move slowly.
