It's certainly equitable that you get the car you agreed to buy and paid for.
It's irrelevant what is "equitable". All I care about is what's legal. As a side note these window stickers are no laughing matter. There's a $1000 fine for not including the window sticker on a new car and I know for a fact my buddy who bought the same car never got his window sticker. And this sticker can only be removed by the consumer.
The Monroney sticker is required to be affixed to the side window or windshield of every new car sold in the United States and can only be removed by the consumer (Chapter 28, Sections 1231-1233, Title 15 of the United States Code). A fine of up to US$1,000 per vehicle for each offense is authorized if the sticker is missing, and other fees and penalties are authorized if the sticker is altered illegally (including imprisonment). The act does not apply to vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of more than 8,500 lb (3,856 kg).
The sticker must include the following information:
- The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP)
- Engine and transmission specifications
- Standard equipment and warranty details
- Optional equipment and pricing
- City and highway fuel economy ratings, as determined by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
- As of September 2007, crash test ratings as determined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
