Any Advice? (Kinda Long)

I recently got a 2002 Intrepid SE and the bank called to verify some information, one of the questions they had was if it had an Infinity Sound System, I didn't think i did so i told them no. Well, today the dealership called about fudging something for them or getting a different car. Well, I went to the dealership to straighten the issue out, the first wanted to have us check out a few different cars but I really didn't like what else they had to offer. Finally after the 3rd test drive they ask me if I just want to keep my trep and I said yes and they told me since my car has CD, that means I have the Infinity System. I told them fine and they told me to call the bank back tomorrow and them tem that it was explained to me that I have the Infinity System. Well, I just verified in my service manual that I definately don't have it cause the Infinity I and II systems bith have the in dash 4-disc changer...and well my cubby bin is empty. So now I'm not sure what I should do, I mean I don't want to pay for something the car doesn't have. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Why would the bank care if you have an Infinity Sound System?

Anyways....have the dealership run the VIN#. That will tell you all the options on your car.

I know my car has a CD player and a 120 watt amp, but I don't think it's considered an Infinity system.

I guess the bank isn't going to give the dealership the full amount since the car doesn't have the Infinity System. Also, I got this used from a Chevy dealership.

If that is the case, I would be very suspect to what the dealership says.

Do you have a factory amp? Do you have speakers up in the A-pillar?

Ahhh....yeah, I have the midline also. Sounds like the dealer doesn't know what they are talking about.

I'm thinking to call the bank and to tell them I do not have the Infinity System and find out what the cost difference will be, but I don't know if the dealer wil try to get the car back or what. The dealer kept mentioning about they were going into the red with the deal unless I told the bank that I had the Infinity system.

Did you buy this car or not? You signed papers? You seem to have proof that you do NOT have an Infinity system. Armed with that and if you already bought the car, I can't see how they can legally get the car back.

Yes, I everything is signed for, I've just had enough headache with this dealership that I want to be sure I don't have to worry about them trying anything funny once I confirm with the bank.
