I disagree with the dealer. The fault is material, they are in breach of contract and you are entitled to rscind the contact, reject the vehicle and claim damages. There is a case, you can look up the judgment online, from 2010 called David Douglas v Glenvarigill Company Limited which will help you. The facts are quite similar to your own case. I hope that helps. If necessary you can sue the dealer for breach of contract. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
