A: Assuming it's under warranty, they should fix it and give you a loaner. Ask for a return, but even under the lemon law they are given time to fix it.

If they don't give yoiu a return take it up with the corporate HQ, you can also check with the consumer division of the NJ AG's office, but at the end of the day if you don't get the new car unlikely you will.
