Here's what happened....tonight.
I went to Bridgewater Acura. They explained to me that it was illegal for a dealer to hold a deposit if you never recieved a vehicle. In fact, in the contract, it does say that if I do not recieve a vehicle in 30 days, then I get back the deposit:

I must add that I was never given a VIN number, as such, never was delivered a vehicle. So, in turn, I should not be charged the $2,500.00. All that this form indicates is my agreement to purchase a vehicle at a certain price, that's it. No vehicle, no money [PERIOD]
It's been since Tuesday (2/12/07) and they still have the charge as pending on my credit card. They have up to 14 days to charge me, after that, it gets erased. However, once it is posted, I'm going to contest it. They have no right to charge me for a vehicle that I didn't purchase. That is theft. Fucking vampires.
Bridgewater Acura was more laid back, not really pressuring, however, I am being cautious. And I'll admit, I'm a bit scared to see how this shit turns out. BTW, the TSX on their lot has <20 mi on the clock, not that it really matters at this point.
