    Default Car Deposit

    Hi
    I went to view a car at a local dealer yesterday after phoning first,


    they said on the phone that if I wanted the car after viewing there would be a 100 deposit to secure.


    I went and viewed it and although the advert said it had a full MOT,
    the dealer had to get it done after I had looked at it,


    it came back 30 mins later with a certificate and an advisory that said "brake pipe line corroded".
    The salesman also insisted the deposit would be 200 not 100.


    I left a deposit but on looking into the vehicle history when I got home,
    it showed that in 2015 it failed an MOT on, nearside & offside rear brake pipes were excessively corroded.


    Strangely the latest inspection doesn't state front/rear offside/nearside is at fault.
    As I want a car for taking my two young sons out, I feel maybe this car is not the one for me.

    Can anybody tell me as I only paid the deposit yesterday,
    due to the advisory,
    am I entitled to get my deposit back ?

    Default Re: Car Deposit

    i'd say yes unless you were specifically told the deposit was non returnable
    and even then, I don't think they can stipulate that anyway.


    how did you pay the deposit....?


    please don't say by cash...
