NEW WINDSOR, NY -- I went to the dealership and they were great initially, gave me two test drives, and everything was great. They gave me a contract with a detailed description of the car and a price. They low-balled me on the trade in price (I had gotten an offer for my car for parts that was the same), but they brought it up a little, and they said they had located my car. This is a NO HAGGLE SCION VEHICLE. They are not allowed to change the price for the base car.

They took my $500 deposit. So, I went home and noticed the VIN was missing on the contract. I asked for a VIN and they said they couldn't get it for a couple of days. Then I get a call with great apology that they made a mistake and the only vehicles they can find are ones with an upgraded radio and I need over $200 more dollars for it. So, I said that was their problem and I had a signed contract that said in clause 6 that they can't change the price They told me to take it or leave it. So, I had to eat it.

You had to do what you that was best for you. For me I would have walked.

You can still go back and sue them in small claims court for breach of contract for the $200 plus interest.

The OP has a contract that shows no specific vehicle (VIN is missing) as sold. The judge would order probably the deposit returned. Now the OP has no car as one was traded in. It's probably off the lot by now. All the OP would be entitled to was the trade-in value. OP would need an attorney to sue for damages.
