I ordered my 5 and put down a $500 deposit

now the lease rates have changed and i was misled about the MSDs in NY and they won't be allowed after being told they were.

1) can i get my deposit back?
2) if i get the same deal in CT, where MSDs are allowed, should i cancel my order?
3) should i talk to the sales manager at original dealership?

what do u think?

Talk to the sales manager, and if you still don't get resolution, take your $500 and walk to another dealership.

I think even though you buy the car in CT, if you live in NY, the laws of the state the car will have registration in will apply. Wish I had better info for you on that.

Just spoke to another dealer in CT who sells to NY'ers all the time and they honored the 7 MSD's :) at the same selling price :)

i'm a happy camper again. :) :) :)

off to get my deposit back !

^ Good for you :thumbup: I was in the biz for a long time, make sure when you ask for the deposit back you explain WHY you have chosen not to keep your business with them. Maybe next time they will pay a bit more attention to the CAs follow up practices.

I'd call and ask for the general manager. If he avoids you, speak to the owner.

If you put the deposit on plastic (and I hope for your sake you did), tell them that if it is not refunded within 48 hours you are going straight to Visa / MasterCard with a complaint.

If you gave them a check, I hope you have stopped payment on it....

And I bet telling them you are Elliott Spitzer's son-in-law would do wonders!:yikes:

Confrontation on a Saturday early afternoon and a :mad: demeanor would certainly get their attention!!
