I purchased a new car 2 days ago and it broke down last night, do I have a legal claim to demand for a new replacement vehicle?

Question Details:

The dealership wants to fix it only. This vehicle was driven only 50 miles and we had less than 2 days. It overheated and broke down. My feeling is that this is now a used vehicle and they need to replace with a new one as that is what I contracted for.
