So, I purchased a 2wd jeep that I thought was 4wd. The dealer however said it was awd. I took it home and did some research on here and got yelled at for not knowing how to tell difference between 2wd and a 4wd jeep. I deserved it. Anyway, I was looking at the paper work and the dealer had checked a box that said that the jeep was awd/4wd. Since I don't want a 2wd jeep does that give me the legal rights to go and do something about it since he said to me it was awd and checked the box that it was awd/4wd. Im not sure if there is anything I can do about it now but I figured that since the paper said its awd than there is something I can do. Does anyone know more on this? Thanks

Re: Problems
Well, the first thing you do is call the dealer. You should ahve done that already. Let him know he made a mistake and you want to return the vehicle and get your money back. It could be an honest mistake. You said your mechanic also said it was AWD.

It could be as easy as that.

Re: Problems
The mechanic didn't actually look at it. He just assumed that it was 4x4

Re: Problems
He misrepresented it in the sale and you have the paperwork to prove it. The dealer really has no choice or you could take legal action. No matter what they try to pull stick to your guns. Sounds like a shady outfit anyway. No dealer is that dumb. I'd demand a full refund and buy elsewhere.

Call the dealer but be ready to take a loss on it. You've had it for several months already. He may sell you a different vehicle but actually getting your money back will require legal action most likely.

Think Outside !- No Box Required.

Re: Problems
Yeah it was a decently small dealer. Not a junk heap of a dealership buts its not like a ford or dodge dealership. So id say a medium one
