Default Dealer advertised price was a mistake, wonít honor

im sure this will bring lots of debate. But I wanted to get some info from some one that might have experience with this issue.
Found a 2018 raptor listed for $63,575. Called dealer and they said it was a mistake and they could not sell it to me at that price. Sticker is $69k and they said they should have it listed for $79k.
About 30 minutes later they fixed the ad on autotrader to display $79k.
Sells rep called me back and said they would sell it to me for $72k. I told them no way. Iím in Texas, Is there any law that states they should honor advertised price??? I donít want to get bbb or consumer affairs involved if I donít have to.
I do understand the raptor is a special vehicle and most dealers sell them above sticker. However there are lots of them on lots right now so I figured 10%off sticker isnít a far shot.
Keep in mind I printed add prior to them changing price. Thoughts????

most of them have a disclaimer at the bottom of the site relieving them of any liability in cases like this.

I knew Iíd get a response like this at some point. To be honest Iíve been far from being a dick to this point. The only reason id contact bbb is if there was guidelines set in place.
Keep in mind Iíve purchased from this dealer before this being a repeat customer. Also Iíve read in forums that they have purchased raptors under sticker. So I didnít think this would hurt them to sell it at this price.

Honest mistake my ***! I have called numerous dealers on advertised prices on cars.com. Most of them always say that the listed price was a mistake. Its blatant false advertising hoping to get you to call and try and sell the vehicle at a higher price or another vehicle>

my first statement was requesting information from members that may have had an experience with this in the past.
I already spoke to a friend of mine that is an attorney. He does state I can get what I want. However been thru litigation for business reasons in the past. Itís not fun and to long of a process. Rather move on.
Itís my fault, I titled it wrong.
