Usually on a supplemental sticker, the dealer sticker price for a new car is the Monroney sticker price (MSRP) plus the suggested retail price of dealer-installed options, such as additional dealer markup (ADM) or additional dealer profit (ADP), dealer preparation, and undercoating. The "Sticker" Price is the highest "asking" price on a new or used car. Years ago there were no MSRP or Monroni info/pricing on new cars.These stickers are "mandated" by the government now to protect the public. This MSRP Price is also (and more importantly) the amount the lenders (Banks) will loan you. In the old days the Bank would loan $ based on the consumers individual "Credit" rating. Not based on the cars worth. Obvious Problems occurred Sticker price is a slang term and could be anything that is displayed on the car (windshield) in a form of a "sticker" of some kind. 1. It could be MSRP, if the "sticker" is by a Manufacturer. 2. It could be some kind of inflated price, depending on the state and country laws where you reside. 3. And it could be a bone fide sale price, if that is what the dealership wants to do.

Can you return a car if sticker price they quote is more than the accual sticker price?

No. Sticker price is only a suggested retail price and if the dealer is able to sell the car for more it is just more money in his pocket. Unfortunately the issue falls back on you for not shopping around for the best price or negotiating a better price. In addition when a new car hits the market and is a highly desirable model dealers often get well over sticker. Example of that being the new Camaro which, when they first came out, dealers were getting $10,000 or more over sticker. Fast forward several months now I have a local dealer with 30 in stock and they will gladly deal with you for sticker or less.
