What are my rights, what should I do?

What you are describing is a violation of the Consumer Leasing Act. Imagine what would happen if you got the car home and decided you had paid too much and wanted them to lower the price of the car? They would tell you "Too bad. You made a deal". that's exactly the situation that you are in except they are the ones trying to renegotiate this.

The furnishing of this information does not create an attorney client relationship. An attorney client relationship requires the furnishing, review, and signing of a retainer agreement.
I would search for an AVVO attorney who you believe can assist you with this matter. It's hard to answer this type of question without first understanding what the financing agreement says AND the reason the dealership is calling you to get the car back/the problem with the financing. Reach out to an attorney that you find here and see the best way to proceed.
