I bought a 1992 Dodge Dakota truck after trying it out on the road for about 5 miles with salesman in truck with me. I heard a funny noise as truck left car lot and then several more times when I stopped for red light and in turning around to go back to dealership. I asked the salesman what that noise was, and he said "some old vehicles just make noises". Turned out it was the transmission, and the slipping noise got worse after buying it and heading home. I bought this truck 10/25/19 and drove it 62 miles total before dealership agreed to take it back "on consignment". Lawsuit would center around dishonesty in disclosing transmission problem.
Failing to post a consumer guide is not going to help in any lawsuit. However, you should immediately file a complaint with the SC Department of Consumer Affairs regarding the dealership lying to you about the status of the vehicle. The dealer should at least refund your money and take the car back. Selling the car "on consignment" is an issue since you now know the transmission is bad.
