ANY car dealer must disclose facts that are material to the purchase. Material is defined as that which formed a basis of the bargain. In other words, did you make it somewhat clear that a previous accident was something you were trying to avoid. Also, it is a clear violation of law to misrepresent the vehicle's history. It does not matter if it is buy-here/pay-here. Any dealership has to conform to the law.

If there is significant damage, yes. Demand your money back and sue if they don't comply.
