Wow! That take-back on the offer must have STUNG. Ouch. Another case where "make that in writing please" might have helped them make good on their offer. Hang in there!

I hope you own the dealership after how they have treated you. I know the legal system really sucks for us "consumers" but maybe you can get lucky with a good lawyer and good judge.
