    I have a friend that put a deposit on a new car that he was going to get and then he didn't end up getting it and the dealer is refusing to give him his deposit back. From what I understand, isn't the dealer obligated to give him his deposit back if he did not purchase the car?

    I would think, unless he signed something stating he wouldnt get it back. Call the bank and tell them to not cash the check... and then they shouldnt!

    Did he use the car at all, like take it home for a few days?

    I had something like this happen to me a few years back. I threaded to speak to the police and an attorney and he gave it back.

    Was there a time limitation? If not depending on state law I would think it's illegal.

    if theyre being dicks about giving it back, you could be a **** back to them. Call the bank and say someone stole your check book. They go to cash a "stolen check" and then they look like asses :-D

    What car is this? Usually a good dealership will not hesitate to give you back your deposit, but they might try to pressure you into another ride to keep a sale.

    But it's different for all dealers.

    Was it a special order or just a deposit to get first dibs on the car when it comes in?

    A lot of places have a law that allows for a full refund of any purchase within 30 days. Here they have a formula that applies if the product got used.
