Bought a car in march, the window sticker stated it had a 3 mode racing suspension, it was a great deal, without that option i would not have purchased it. The dealership confirmed that what the sticker states is what the vehicle has. I traded a vehicle and rolled the negative equity into the new loan of the vehicle from march. I recently found out my car has a lower trim suspension and that the dealership wont install the 3 mode suspension because it would cost thousands to do so. I contacted the dealership and they contacted the manufacturer and i quickly got a reply offer from the manufacturer to buyback the car. If they offer MSRP for the vehicle i will be without a car and with the remainder of the loan. I bought the vehicle believing i was getting a great deal and i feel the vehicle i purchased is not the one i received, Should the manufacturer or the dealership cover the remainder of the loan? What can be done in my situation?
You have a couple options. First you can accept their offer of but back. Second, you can demand the difference between what you got and what you paid. Third one of course is to keep things as they are. The but back should cover your trade in.

They have breached the express warranty on the vehicle. I would demand that you be made 100% whole. A "buyback" of the vehicle should get you pretty close to being 100% compensated. Just be careful. dealers try to cheat consumers all the time in this type of situation.
