I was sold a Euro6-compliant car, which I've now discovered isn't compliant. What can I do if I was mislead about buying the vehicle?

I have a car that was sold to me as Euro6 compliant due to the AdBlue system. However, when entering the reg number on London's ULEZ checker it states that the car is non-compliant. Is it possible this is a mistake or was I mislead when sold the vehicle?

This reads like you were misled when buying the vehicle. If you bought it from a dealer, take it back and demand a refund. If you purchased it from a private seller, getting a refund will be more difficult unless you can prove they advertised the vehicle as Euro6 or ULEZ compliant.
