Legal Question in Consumer Law in Pennsylvania

Bought and financed a car at a dealership in Pennsylvania. Week later, the dealership calls and said they made an error on the interest rate on the original finance papers, want me to come in and resign new paperwork with a higher interest rate than originally signed for. Am I legally bound to do this or are they legally bound to honor the original contract?
