Write a letter to the auto company and the credit bureaus stating you did not authorize this inquiry and you want it removed from your credit report.  You'll need to send them 2 forms of your ID, a copy of your driver's license and utility bill is fine.  Wait about 30-45 days.  If it still appears on your credit report, then instead of paying a lawyer, go to Consumer Financial Protection Bureau website at www.consumerfinance.gov and lodge a complaint with them - they get results.  Best of luck!
