Curious what most put down for deposit on an order -- my local dealer (internet sales) said could put in order in for me below MSRP but requires a $5-10k non-refundable deposit, is that typical?




I contacted the internet sales for another local dealer that is rated well and received an email from the head of sales 4 days later telling me he had sold 5 and only had one left he would give me at MSRP + $5k market adjustment fee, I told him to pound sand.

I have heard numerous figures for the deposit. The going seems to be $5K-$10K nonrefundable. I have heard $1K numerous times and even heard $20K nonrefundable as well lol. Myself, I put down $500. All in all, if you are serious about buying it, the nonrefundable should not scare you.

5k non refundable but he said if he sell it at msrp which was my price then I get my money back. So essentially it would be refundable. Unless he gives it to the guy for $5k below msrp.

If you're optioning out a vehicle to be built to your specification, then of course you need to put a deposit down on it. Unless the dealer is asking you for a larger deposit then you intended to put down on the vehicle with financing it, then it should just be a moot point. I put down 3k, and since I fully intend to take delivery of it, I actually felt more comfortable putting money down on it knowing it's mine since this is a limited model. Even though I'm not sure they've announced how limited yet.
