I would consult an attorney ASAP, consulting an attorney does not mean not giving the dealer a chance. In fact after talking to an attorney, he/she might tell you how to give the dealer the necessary opportunities to remedy the issue. But you need to do it the right way for your own protection, in case legal representation is needed later, if not now.
I think you make a mistake in trying to classify damage from a hungry mouse as a defect in the car. It's environmental damage. Nothing to do with warranties, nothing to do with Lemons. IF a seller knowingly sells a vehicle with existing damage, that's a totally different thing.
