Suitland, MD asked in Business Law for Maryland

Q: would i be able to sue a dealership for giving false info about promo going on

We called the dealership to get information before going so that if we didn't meet criteria then we wouldn't waste our time. So they told us over the phone that we didn't have to worry about our credit being ran, we would only have to pay $88 as a down payment, and the monthly payment would be around $185 a month. They also told us that there wasn't going to be any additional fees. So we enter the dealership they ask us the usual question, for example , Name, Number, Address, etc. Afterwards he starts to check our credit even after we was told on the phone by some else that we didn't need our credit ran in the system. Then they proceed to tell us that we where not eligible to get a vehicle and for us to get one we would have to put down at least $3000 to $4000 to be eligible to get a vehicle.
