POSSIBLE DEPOSIT BACK????

Lets say I ordered a CAMARO and put down a deposit, on a credit card. And the dealer charged my card that day, and I have been waiting for the DAM vin for a while now.


Now lets say I found my car in stock and for a better price from another dealer.

Can I get my deposit back?

How do I go about it?

Thanks,
Bill Baranowski

Ask the dealer - tell them it is not a good time for a purchase...it goes over better than "I found another one"


How good is your new price?

Just ask. I got my deposit back from the first dealer I went with because they were taking too long and Scott gave me a much better deal. If you're still not @ 3000 status, the dealer should be able to cancel the order and give you your money back I would think.

It's all up to your dealer. Unless you signed something that stated you could have your deposit back you're SOL. But rather than ask people here, just ask your dealer and like Scotty said, don't tell him you found one for a better deal.

This is what the plan is. just want to be as cool as I can about it. I know they will say "it is non refundable" I just do not want to get too pissed. looking for possible friendly solutions.

Honestly if you have to tell them you lost your job and you cannot afford to buy the car and you need your deposit back.

I'm not sure about Florida, but I've been told by DEALERs in California that they can not legally keep your deposit unless you have signed a final sales contract with a VIN number on it.

Perhaps these dealers are speaking about what Wyoming T/A stated: "
they cant legally keep your deposit until you sign the purchase contract and the you have 3 days to cancel that contract--fed. law."

There's one easy way to find out: http://www.myfloridalegal.com/

Contact your local Attorney General Office. That's what their job is: to serve you, the public in answering a basic question like you have. It's your tax dollars that pay their salary. In other words, if you thought you were legally wronged by the dealer, this is whom you would contact.

Maybe a 5 minute call could save you some $$$ . If you have knowledge, you will be more in charge when you deal with your dealer.

Good luck.

It's your money until the rear wheeks roll over the dealer's curb.

State's attorney general will enforce if nec.
