Lemon law is warranty law.

This seller likely did not give you a warranty, so, no lemon law claim. Sounds like you were lied to and you think you can prove this. That would be fraud. For a fraud claim, your reliance on his lies must be...

Sounds like you have a question. I'll guess it is, what can you do here?

You can make a demand of the dealer to put you back where you would

have been had this not happened. Dealer will likely reject. You will then

likely have to sue dealer in small claims court. Good luck with it!

It is not clear to me that THEY contact FCA for you or if you

to your contact or to their's? That could make a difference.
